Democratic Senators Issue Last-Minute Warnings About Trump's Supreme Court Pick

Ramesh Ponnuru U.S. politics could be upended after Roe v. Wade

"I think there's nothing to worry about with regard to Roe v. Wade".

New York State Attorney General Barbara Underwood also opposes Kavanaugh's nomination.

Cuomo signed the order on Tuesday, and said at a pro-abortion rally at the Yonkers Public Library's Will branch there was "no question" Judge Brett Kavanaugh "will overturn Roe v. Wade". Before he was elected the Prez said he expects Roe v. Wade to be rolled back because he planned to appoint judges who are anti-abortion.

"In this critical moment in our nation's history, the stakes are too high; we need an experienced leader who will fight to protect New Yorkers from federal attacks on our rights and values - and that leader is Andrew Cuomo". Cuomo's scaremongering is an ironic reminder to blue-staters that not only would nothing change in their backyards if Roe were dumped, the new legal regime that replaces it in the state legislature might be more liberal than what Roe has provided them.

Nonetheless, groups like the ACLU of Alaska have demanded Kavanaugh go on the record with his position on Roe v. Wade before his confirmation vote. "I am pro-life in terms of legislation that passes through the House, but I do think the Supreme Court has settled that issue generationally".

The Health Insurers Squawk
According to health insurers, this could drive up premium costs and create health care marketplace uncertainty. The CMS has appealed the decision, particularly because a MA court upheld such payments.

I've said this before but the bad truth of it bears repeating: Chris is the "smart Cuomo".

Cohen thinks the more likely scenario is for the majority-conservative Supreme Court to incrementally chip away at abortion access with a series of rulings, a strategy some call "death by 1,000 cuts".

Golston's group is nonpartisan, and she said they would back Republicans for election to the Senate if they supported the Reproductive Health Act, but so far, no GOP candidate has done so.

As for what he says about NY law being tougher on abortion than Roe, that's marginally true. If not for that alliance, Nixon said, Democrats could have been in power and the measure already would have become law. "Alaska Right to Life wants to make sure and urge both Senators Murkowski and Sullivan to confirm a justice that recognizes the personhood of the child in the womb". Rand Paul, a fierce opponent of government surveillance that some critics say Kavanaugh would vote to legitimize, vowed to keep an "open mind" on his nomination.

The vice president also briefly discussed foreign affairs ahead of this week's key North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, where President Trump is expected to demand US allies contribute more funding for their own national defense.
