Wade Is Reversed, 22 States Poised to Ban Abortion

Stacey Dash anti-abortion movie loses cast, crew and funding UPenn Professor: Women Could Go to Jail for Miscarriages if ‘Roe’ Overturned

She called Justice Gorsuch, for example, "an ideological mercenary", who proved his critics right. Jefferson was serving as president of National Right to Life when the High Court opened the door to almost unlimited abortion through its Roe v. Wade decision. Collins would agree that those were very good reversals.

"By demanding that all nominees affirm the personal liberty standard, the next Supreme Court justice will ensure that the right to safe, legal abortion is protected", the liberal groups state.

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.

On a broader level, many on the left are finally realizing that the Supreme Court - one of their favorite tools to force their political beliefs on the rest of the country - could be out of their control for decades after the appointment of a new conservative justice.

Kennedy, by contrast, was a swing vote on abortion issues.

US service member killed in Afghanistan insider attack
The Taliban did not claim responsibility for the attack, but acknowledged it in a message on its official Telegram channel. The attack took place in southern Afghanistan on Saturday, a statement from the Nato-led Resolute Support mission said.

In a Sunday interview with Fox News, National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws President Ilyse Hogue told Dana Perino she wanted a guarantee that abortion rights would remain, expressing grave concerns the landmark case's ruling would be flipped.

Roughly a dozen other states appear unlikely to enact tougher abortion laws, and some of those, such as California and Maryland, have laws explicitly protecting the right to access abortion.

Without Roe, he said, the people of every state could decide how tolerant or not they want to be when it comes to abortion. 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.

On Friday, at a rally in Wisconsin where she was joined by House Speaker Paul Ryan, Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Leah Vukmir said Sen. Justice Antonin Scalia was confirmed by a vote of 98-0 in 1986. As they've put together a campaign against the president's nominee, Democratic groups have found that informing voters of a looming threat to Roe - one that few saw as likely before the 2016 election - is one of their strongest messages.

Leo, who is on leave from the conservative Federalist Society to advise Trump on his Supreme Court pick, would not confirm whether Trump had made his final selection. Instead, they tacitly acquiesced to a "don't ask, don't tell" procedure: Republican judicial nominees would have the right to refuse to answer questions about how they would vote on abortion rights, and in turn, Senate pro-choice Democrats would give them the benefit of the doubt as long as there was no paper trail indicating their overt hostility to Roe. 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".
