Pence: 'I do' still want Roe v. Wade to be overturned

"This is really a non-issue in NY, but the governor has been acting like a chicken without a head, yelling, 'The sky is falling!", Michael Long, veteran chairman of the state Conservative Party, told CNHI.

That's the question now that President Donald Trump has chosen conservative Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.

The Senate has a 50-vote threshold to confirm a Supreme Court justice.


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.

KING: How might Kavanaugh or the court change the way Roe v. Wade is interpreted? Trump has since downplayed those remarks, indicating in a recent interview with Fox News that his advisors have discouraged him from asking potential nominees outright if they would vote to overturn the Roe precedent. The attempt to return the culture back to pre-Elvis-ass-shaking days fell to Ronald Reagan, who believed the Viet Nam War was a success and all the Shiny City on the Hill stuff that was co-opted by the mobilization of the Religious Right to stop things like the Equal Rights Amendment, convincing women that they would have to share bathrooms and work on a shipping dock if passed. You talked about these issues in the past to other people I'm sure. That standard applied to laws with a "purpose or effect [.] to place substantial obstacles in the path of a woman seeking an abortion before the fetus attains viability".

"What matters is not a judge's political views, but whether they can set aside those views to do what the law and Constitution require", Trump said in a speech unveiling Kavanaugh as his nominee. Between 1970 and the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, the situation was that many women of some means travelled to NY for abortions while women of less means continued to die from performing their own or having them botched by others.


"Look, I think there's always more everyone can do, but he's definitely been a champion and spoken up for our issues", Chappelle Golston said.

In addition, Cuomo called on the state Senate to vote on legislation codifying Roe v. Wade's protection of abortion in state law. It can then, with no Roe v. Wade president, order a national removal of the pancreas. The ruling found a constitutional right to privacy extends to a woman's decision to have an abortion. When you reflect back on that time in your life, in light of Kavanaugh's nomination, where does your mind go? And if Roe v. Wade is overturned, will that mean the end of legal abortions in our country?

On Thursday, he even released an "open letter" to State University of New York Board Chairman Carl McCall and City University of New York Board Chairman Bill Thompson, both of whom are black, urging them to promote racial diversity after the Trump administration rescinded guidelines on using race in college admissions, The New York Post reports.


Schumer: I understand, but what is your opinion. "Those children are dispatched to relatives or to foster care and we know where they are and there's a plan to reunite them". "It is not enough that you may think the prior decision was wrongly decided". An appeals court recently shot down the lawsuit, but the insurers are expected to file for a re-hearing in a case with implications for more than $12 billion in federal payments. It was made up by the justices at the time.
