Battle lines drawn over abortion ahead of Trump's supreme court pick

Merrick Garland Schuck Schumer

The conservative, pro-life activist who has President Trump's ear as he decides on filling a Supreme Court vacancy predicted the nominee would be confirmed before the mid-term elections but sidestepped a question about whether the candidate would oppose Roe v. Wade.

But Trump himself has said he wants to put people on the court who support overturning the landmark 1973 decision that granted women the constitutional right to have an abortion.

ABC meanwhile will hit pause on The Bachelorette's jaunt to the Bahamas as needed to accommodate breaking news coverage, and then resume its regularly scheduled programming, airing both Bachelorette and The Proposal in full.

Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal of CT, who is on the Senate Judiciary Committee that holds hearings on Supreme Court nominees, told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on "This Week" that Trump has "outsourced" his decision to the Federalist Society and the Heritage Foundation. He's reportedly down to four possible picks, all of whom are Federalist Society members: Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett, Raymond Kethledge and Thomas Hardiman.

The first two are the top contenders for the position, the report said. Have not made it final.

Savoring the suspense, Trump has sought to keep people guessing in the final hours, hoping to replicate his successful announcement of Justice Neil Gorsuch previous year. "Every one you can't go wrong".

It also expresses the fear and outrage among immigrant communities who feel that ICE is terrorizing their neighborhoods. They are tougher and smarter than these rough criminal (elements) that bad immigration laws allow into our country.

This will be 6.30 am - Tuesday - local India time on July 10. "And I think we can take this call to action to the American people, take our case to them". I think they're all outstanding.

He said he believes that any of the four candidates on the short list will dismantle Roe v. Wade and other hard-fought rights.

Asked about the details of the selection process, Trump said he had it down to four people.

"If all the Republicans stick together", Chris Coons, a Democratic senator on the Senate Judiciary Committee, told CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday, "they will be able to confirm whomever President Trump nominates".

Ilyse Hogue, president of the pro-abortion organization Naral, told Fox News Sunday that Trump had changed the rules of the game.
