Wade Is Reversed, 22 States Poised to Ban Abortion

  • Democrats’ court-packing talk is just crazy

Loeb noted that the news of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's impending retirement makes the upcoming movie especially relevant, since President Trump's replacement may give the High Court enough votes to overturn Roe v. Wade.

She called Justice Gorsuch, for example, "an ideological mercenary", who proved his critics right.

The simple fact is that the Supreme Court created a constitutional right to abortion out of whole cloth 45 years ago with the Roe v. Wade decision. Collins would agree that those were very good reversals.

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin on Tuesday didn't mince words about what President Donald Trump's nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court meant for the future of reproductive rights in the United States.

Collins, a moderate Republican and abortion rights supporter from ME, is seen as a swing vote in the confirmation of the next Supreme Court justice. One of these will have to get to the Supreme Court to enable a majority to overturn Roe.

Trump promised to appoint only biased justices who will overturn Roe v. Wade.

But those with absolutist views are in the minority: Just 25 percent said abortion should be legal in all cases and 16 percent said it should be illegal in all cases. Roberts expressed concern about the "onslaught on women's access to abortion" that could occur were a conservative justice to take Kennedy's place.


Dash is still on board to play pro-life advocate Mildred Jefferson, who was the former president of National Right to Life and the first black woman to receive a degree from Harvard Medical School.

Cuomo also backs a measure, known as the Reproductive Health Act, or RHA, which would codify the rights in the Roe v. Wade case into NY law. A mere reversal of Roe would not have stopped New York, California, and other states from offering legal abortion for both residents and non-residents.

Cuomo says Monday that the GOP-led Senate should immediately reconvene to pass the measure in light of a vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Most Republicans want to put the Supreme Court out of reach of the left for a generation or more.

After an initial burst of enthusiasm about the court opening, Republican politicians have characterized any questions about Roe's fate as scaremongering by Democrats.

Thanks to the decision by retired Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., to allow lower court judges and executive branch employees to win Senate confirmation by a simple majority - rather than a two-thirds majority - the next Supreme Court nominee will need only 51 Senate votes to be confirmed, rather than a two-thirds majority of 67 in the 100-member Senate. But he sided with conservatives this year when the court upheld Trump's ban on travel from predominately Muslim countries. Justice Antonin Scalia was confirmed by a vote of 98-0 in 1986. Leo singled out Barrett and Kavanaugh as having "a lot of name recognition among supporters of the president, and I think that ultimately when people like them are nominated you'll see a lot of folks line up".
