Pence Cheers 'Pro-Life Administration' While Dodging Q's On Kavanaugh

The government will then have the right to make a law that forces people to have only one child and that through the eradication of Roe v. Wade ironically gives it the right to command forced abortions.

As of now, four states - Louisiana, Mississippi and North and South Dakota - have what are known as abortion "trigger laws".

Weddington: Well, it's 50 years since I started work on it, because I started in 1969. At the same time, he called on the state Senate to reconvene to pass a bill that would make Roe v. Wade protections state law.

Cuomo also chided the GOP-led state Senate for "drinking the Trump Kool-Aid" and pushed the state legislature to reconvene and codify Roe v. Wade into state law by passing the Reproductive Health Act.

We need to mobilize in the states.

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".

Schumer noted Trump tapped Kavanaugh from a list of 25 candidates who were vetted and approved by the Federalist Society and Heritage Foundation, "special interest groups devoted to overturning Roe and striking down the Affordable Care Act". Every state election and every legislative session will become a battlefield. Justice Harry Blackmun wrote the majority opinion, saying that an individual's right to privacy, as enumerated in different forms in both the Ninth and Fourteenth Amendments, is "broad enough to encompass a woman's decision whether or not to terminate her pregnancy".

That could return the legal landscape to where it was before 1973, where each state gets to decide whether to allow abortion and under what circumstances. Only nine have laws to protect the right to an abortion regardless of Roe. "There's this narrative that in this new climate [where Roe could be overturned], people will resort to desperate measures, and we really push back on that narrative because we know that also the technology has changed, the medicine has changed, and we know that people are able to have an abortion with medication".

While it is true that this nomination shifts the balance toward the conservative wing of an often divided Court, we simply do not know how or when Roe vs. Wade will be reversed. Maybe that's because he's finally listening to his staff. Seven in 10 Americans believe abortion should be legal.

Not long after President Donald Trump nominated Federal Appeals Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, protesters, along with a handful of Democratic senators, gathered in front of the Supreme Court vowing to block the nomination.

On the other side of the aisle, liberals have never mustered the same level of discipline and far-sighted strategy, even though the court's rulings also have direct implications for goals that liberals and Democrats claim to hold dear.

Democracy happens in the trenches.

According to this system, the only judge more conservative than Kavanaugh is Justice Clarence Thomas. Their witch-doctor influence was paramount in creating a mutated wing of the Republican Party that before was filled with mostly multi-issued economic voters. Some (but not all) of that is due to unjustified restrictions on the franchise.

This chart from Statista puts a percentage on the votes that can be coded as conservative for the past 12 justices, excluding Neil Gorsuch, who was appointed by Trump in 2017 to replace Justice Antonin Scalia, who had died.
