Elena Kagan is speeding towards confirmation as the newest Supreme Court justice.
In three days of hearings, Kagan has dodged Republican attempts to reveal her opinions about the high court and its decisions.
Senators have asked her questions about issues from gay marriage to abortion, but Kagan has done her best to sidestep any controversy by not explaining much about her opinions, if at all.
"I hope the court would consider the modern version of viability of life," Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said to Kagan.
"I do think it's fair in all areas, to consider scientific change," Kagan replied.
The hearing is expected to conclude by Thursday evening. Senators are scheduled to hear testimony from outside witnesses for most of the day.
A full Senate vote on Kagan's nomination will likely be in August, which would allow Kagan to be seated before the court's new term in October.
