Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Rebecca Bradley isn’t saying whether she would recuse herself from an abortion case in light of comments she made as a college student equating abortion to the Holocaust.

Bradley was asked during a Madison debate Wednesday with opponent JoAnne Kloppenburg whether she would recuse herself from an abortion case because of her comments. She responded by saying she makes recusal decisions on a case by case basis. She said if she had any question in her mind about her ability to be impartial she would recuse herself.

But she also said justices are expected to set aside their personal opinions and apply the law as written.

Bradley faces Kloppenburg in the April 5 election for a 10-year term on the high court.
