Vanderbilt law professor believes Roe v. Wade won't be overturned

Why conservatives should support Roe v. Wade

"The President believes that the proper consideration for a nominee to the Court is not about litmus tests", Pence said in response.

Two weeks ago, with the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy, the tectonic plates of the USA abortion debate in the Supreme Court shifted for the first time in decades.

Speaking on "Special Report with Bret Baier", Pence said he predicted Kavanaugh would secure a seat on the high court, despite intense opposition from progressive groups and top Democratic senators. "His educational background and credentials are exemplary, and his record demonstrates respect for the U.S. Constitution".

However, once you're on the Supreme Court, you are not bound by previous decisions of the Supreme Court. "Congressional Democrats are not pointing out the fact that even if Roe vs. Wade was overturned, it would not automatically ban abortions across the country, although that's the way they're framing it". "So just because I had an opportunity to weigh in on his nomination at the circuit court level, this is a different ballgame", Murkowski said.

In a Monday night statement, Planned Parenthood Executive Vice President Dawn Laguens warned that Kavanaugh's confirmation would spell the end for Roe v. Wade. "I find it hard to think that [Chief Justice] Roberts - who has a more long-term view of the arc of the court and a desire to preserve its institutional role - would facially overrule Roe".

"The court cares about things like its own legitimacy", says Myrick, "and how often a precedent has been upheld in the past". I have found no one who thinks the government should control your liver, brain, heart, stomach, so why the uterus? "But that is something that I'm going to be looking at", she said. Republicans hold a 51-vote majority, and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer, both New York Democrats.

KUT's Nathan Bernier spoke with Weddington about Kavanaugh's nomination and the future of Roe.

Hatch said it would be "pathetic" for one issue to cause an "otherwise a really outstanding person" to have Democrats go against him. "There's thousands of nominees who can be offered who would be bipartisan nominees".

Trump takes no stand on Crimea
It will continue to support rebels in eastern Ukraine, as well as President Bashar Assad and Iranian troops in Syria. The July 16 US-Russia summit in Helsinki could reset a relationship dogged by decades of risky rivalry.

Still, said Russell, other cases are already working their way through the courts that could chip away at the case's protections for abortion rights. There's also a possibility they would say, well, it still allows the states to legislate in whatever way they want to.

The American people have never supported such a policy.

"I'm going to do everything I possibly can to speak out against this nominee".

Gov. Cuomo has been calling on lawmakers to increase protections in NY.

And, in an interview earlier, he predicted that the potential new justice wouldn't be the deciding vote in overturning Roe v. Wade, the decision legalizing abortion nationwide.

Cuomo accused the Republican senators of drinking "the Trump Kool-Aid".

"They are created to make abortion illegal immediately", says Myrick.

The governor's critics, which include his Democratic primary challenger Cynthia Nixon, say he has not done enough during his two terms in office to get the reproductive health act passed.
