Murkowski stresses 'due diligence' as Senate considers Kavanaugh SCOTUS nomination

Why conservatives should support Roe v. Wade

Legally-mandated waiting periods in which women have to wait a certain number of hours before they can undergo an abortion have also been passed recently.

With President Trump's nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh as Justice Anthony Kennedy's replacement on the Supreme Court, the fate of Roe v. Wade and women's reproductive rights have sparked a sharp debate.

He also said of a planned one-on-one meeting next Monday between Trump and Putin, "The meeting in Helsinki will be an opportunity for the President to sit down and, I think, evaluate the leader of Russian Federation in a fresh way". And particularly, they're pointing to a decision that Judge Kavanaugh wrote pretty recently that would not have allowed a young immigrant woman to access an abortion. Who does he think he's going to sue, Brett Kavanaugh?

Fitzpatrick believes gay marriage will also be upheld if Kavanaugh is confirmed to the high court. "These were the Republican senators just a couple of years ago, telling me it's unimaginable that anyone would try to overturn Roe v. Wade".

"We at Planned Parenthood are working both to try to make sure that this confirmation does not happen", he said, "as well as to take this old law off the books so if it does happen, we have some protections here in New Mexico".

In a statement to IJR, Shapiro specified that Kavanaugh and Chief Justice John Roberts likely wouldn't grant a writ of certiorari - a procedure bringing cases from a lower court to the Supreme Court - to a direct challenge against Roe.

Asked by CNN's Dana Bash whether he wants to see Roe v. Wade overturned, Pence replied, "I do, but I haven't been nominated for the Supreme Court".

Vanderbilt Law professor Brian Fitzpatrick doesn't adhere to that thinking.

He not only is a Constitutional Law expert, but Fitzpatrick also knows the thinking of a Supreme Court Justice.

Cuomo's Democratic primary challenger, Cynthia Nixon, held her own rally to protest Trump's selection of Kavanaugh to serve on the Supreme Court.

Kavanaugh could play a pivotal role in deciding future cases related to abortion and the continuation of the major health care law. "The criticism was that he didn't do it strongly enough".

Nixon was endorsed by the national group #VOTEPROCHOICE, which is affiliated with the Women's March on Washington and has endorsed pro-abortion rights candidates across the country.

"I revere the Constitution", Kavanaugh said after Trump's announcement.

Today, NARAL Pro-Choice America announced a new ad campaign in Alaska, Maine, Colorado, Nevada, and Texas urging the Republican Senators in those states to oppose Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court.

"I stand for the sanctity of life", Pence added.

"You either come back and protect a woman's right to choose and respect a woman's reproductive health rights", said Cuomo. "Those cases are going to keep coming".

Even pro-life legal scholars acknowledge that, at least in the short term after an reversal of Roe, a significant number of states, NY nearly certainly among them, would keep the procedure legal with few regulations, and even serve as magnets for women in states that restricted or banned the procedure.
