Kavanaugh Meets Trump’s Litmus Test and Will End Roe v Wade

Woodruff followed up, "Can you guarantee Democrats, though, senator, that, if Judge Kavanaugh is confirmed, that Roe v. Wade would not be overturned?"

"The en banc majority, by contrast, reflects a philosophy that unlawful immigrant minors have a right to immediate abortion on demand, not to be interfered with even by Government efforts to help minors navigate what is undeniably a hard situation by expeditiously transferring them to their sponsors", Kavanaugh wrote.

Several New Mexico legislators already have said they'll make rescinding the state anti-abortion law a priority in the next session. Most don't ever come near the Supreme Court.

"I believe that precedent is important for the Supreme Court", Stefanik told The Sun last month. Should Roe be overturned, the question of abortion, and any limits on abortions, would return to the states and in most cases the legislative branch.

In a wide-ranging interview with Bret Baier, Vice President Pence says the White House is encouraged by the early response to President Trump's Supreme Court nominee, that Trump believes in engagement with Russian Federation, and that the president was right to dismiss General Flynn. So you could make a different decision, and he might well do that.

In televised remarks from the East Room of the White House Monday night, the president praised 53-year-old Kavanaugh's "unsurpassed qualifications and a proven commitment to equal justice under the law". Period. I am for that, not abortions or the rest of it. Rights.

Donald Trump pushes North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies to double their defence spending
The alliance set a goal in 2014 for each country to reach the 2% of GDP spending target by 2024. Stoltenberg agreed there should be more done to prompt allies to invest more in their defense.

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Chairman Bill Thompson, both of whom are black, urging them to promote racial diversity after the Trump administration rescinded guidelines on using race in college admissions, The New York Post reports.

Legal experts, however, aren't convinced that Kavanaugh's presence alone would automatically lead to the overturning of Roe and the 1992 landmark case Planned Parenthood vs. Casey, which upheld large parts of Roe and ruled that states can not impose an "undue burden" on patients seeking abortion. There were a lot of things happening in various states.

Somehow, some way, this guy is a law-school graduate. But ignorance is kind of in now, and this is why so many Evangelicals continue to support easily the most immoral fucker we've elected president since the Civil War.

Vanderbilt Law professor Brian Fitzpatrick doesn't adhere to that thinking. "You're always going to have some Republicans and some Democrats who wish that the judge would meet every standard that they set, but that's not realistic".

He says Trump wants to take the nation back 45 years to the early 1970s, before Roe v. Wade was decided.

The first - and most likely type to result in the court taking a broad look at Roe v. Wade - are "gestational" bans that seek to restrict abortion at a certain point in pregnancy, said Lipton-Lubet. It was made up by the justices at the time.
