How Might The New Supreme Court Nominee Impact Abortion Rights?

Why conservatives should support Roe v. Wade

Weddington: Well, it's 50 years since I started work on it, because I started in 1969.

Susan Collins! The moderate supporter of abortion rights and a potential swing vote in the process to confirm President Donald Trump's choice to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy to the U.S. Supreme Court!

We need to mobilize in the states.

Regulations have also forced clinics to close, and there are now six states with only one abortion provider.

WEDDINGTON:.Kavanaugh, will be turned down. Every state election and every legislative session will become a battlefield. And we know that, yeah, he's in a different party, but the party is now in the majority, and he ought to have support. The law should protect the citizen, whose rights are provided by the Constitution, not a religious document. "But, with the ability of the court to sort of move at the margins and let a regulation stand here and let another regulation stand there, when you add it all up it restricts access". She pointed to a June survey from the non-partisan Kaiser Family Foundation that found 73 percent of independent voters say they want to keep Roe v. Wade in place.

Monday night, the plates shifted again as President Trump announced his nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, a D.C. Circuit Court judge with a judicial record friendly to the pro-life cause. Maybe that's because he's finally listening to his staff.

In another major ruling, Kavanaugh dissented from a decision previous year which required the Trump Administration to facilitate an abortion for an illegal immigrant teen girl, arguing that the government has a "permissible interest in favoring fetal life, protecting the best interests of a minor, and refraining from facilitating abortion". Both have praised Kavanaugh since Trump's selection was made this week.

Murkowski, a moderate Republican who is pro-abortion rights, has been the target of public lobbying to vote against any Trump pick for the court that might sway the balance to the right, and potentially overturn the landmark 1973 abortion case Roe v. Wade.

Recent polling in NY confirms most Democratic voters want strong abortion protections. You're free to liquidate your fetus up until 24 weeks but late-term abortions are forbidden even there unless a doctor decides it's necessary to save a woman's life.

"On everything from reproductive rights to sexual harassment, the governor has shown us just how out of touch he is".

Democracy happens in the trenches. Some (but not all) of that is due to unjustified restrictions on the franchise. The real leader of the group was a woman named Judy Smith, who unfortunately passed away a couple of years ago, and a number of others, a lot of them graduate students. But perhaps the fight over his successor will help progressives realize the urgency of fighting on other fronts as well.

"Kavanaugh was chosen because he lives up to Trump's litmus test and will be a vote to end Roe v. Wade, criminalize abortion, and punish women". During his hearing in 2006, Kavanaugh refused to offer his personal opinion on Roe but said that the Supreme Court already decided the issue and that he would "faithfully" follow Roe v. Wade.
