Mike Pence: I Still Want to See Roe v. Wade Overturned

Mike Pence: I Still Want to See Roe v. Wade Overturned

Mr. Cuomo made the odd threat Wednesday, pushing for a bill in the state legislature that would establish abortion as a right under NY state law.

Robin Chappelle Golston, President of Planned Parenthood Empire State Acts, the lobbying arm of Planned Parenthood in NY, predicts that the landmark 1973 abortion rights decision Roe v Wade will likely be overturned if Kavanaugh is confirmed by the U.S. Senate. He's pushing for the passage of the Reproductive Health Act, which shifts language for abortions from the state's penal code to the public health law, changes abortion's status as an exception to homicide and allows abortions in the third trimester of a pregnancy under certain circumstances.

Confirmation hearings for the newest U.S. Supreme Court nominee are not likely before September, but the selection of Brett Kavanaugh already has New Mexico reproductive-rights advocates mobilizing on two fronts. In that case, Kavanaugh wrote, "All parties to this case recognize Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey as precedents we must follow".

According to an analysis by the Guttmacher Institute, a reproductive-rights think tank, 19 states adopted 63 new restrictions on abortion rights and access. Most Democrats, on the other hand, oppose him. "Those cases are going to keep coming". "We are the majority and those who vote for Kavanaugh, which is a vote to end Roe v. Wade, will be held accountable at the ballot box".

Rep. Lois Frankel, D-Fla., brought a hanger to pen and pad talking about Kavanaugh's nomination to Supreme Court.

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.

Tit-for-tat tariffs will 'destroy' trade relations with USA , says China
Trade Representative's office to identify US$ 200 billion of Chinese goods that could be hit with 10 percent tariffs. But Trump hasn't backed down, arguing that China's unfair trading practices are hurting American workers.

One case that could affect abortion might come if IN decides to appeal a 7th Circuit Court of Appeals decision that ruled that the state could not ban an abortion after a Down syndrome diagnosis.

In another major ruling, Kavanaugh dissented from a decision a year ago which required the Trump Administration to facilitate an abortion for an illegal immigrant teen girl, arguing that the government has a "permissible interest in favoring fetal life, protecting the best interests of a minor, and refraining from facilitating abortion". Before Roe, women seeking an abortion often had to resort to back-alley abortionists or homegrown methods - all unsafe, even life-threatening.

The situation in the 1950s and ‘'60s was that abortion was illegal, and women sought out doctors and others willing to perform illegal abortions under less-than-ideal circumstances or performed those abortions on themselves. "And so the question is whether Kavanaugh, if he's confirmed, replaces him as that justice who's perhaps more in the middle. 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".

"Judge Brett Kavanaugh is quite simply the most qualified and the most deserving nominee", said Pence.

"I believe that precedent is important for the Supreme Court", Stefanik told The Sun last month.

Vanderbilt Law professor Brian Fitzpatrick doesn't adhere to that thinking.
