States brace for abortion fights after Kavanaugh nomination

States brace for abortion fights after Kavanaugh nomination

Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) and Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.), both of whom joined Manchin in confirming the president's first Supreme Court pick, now-Justice Neil Gorsuch, last year.

It's unclear when a confirmation hearing will be held for Mr. Kavanaugh, although Republican leaders are pushing for approval before the Supreme Court's next term starts in October. "If we put another two or perhaps three justices on, that will happen". A conservative stalwart of the Washington establishment, Mr. Kavanaugh's nomination is the culmination of a three-decade push for a reliable conservative majority on the United States' highest court.

Although Kavanaugh is often noncommittal in his writings about how he would approach cases, it is clear he thinks the Constitution gives the executive branch vast powers, to which the judiciary must defer and would be much less likely than other judges to declare a law ambiguous and thus defer to federal agency interpretations of regulations and implementation.

Gerard also objected to Kavanaugh because he would "deny women their right to abortion after he tried - ultimately unsuccessfully - to prevent an undocumented minor who was in government custody from obtaining the procedure". "The majority's decision represents a radical extension of the Supreme Court's abortion jurisprudence", he said in his dissent. And because we are something of a juristocracy, the choices of one man, Brett Kavanaugh, will play an outsize role in determining which scenario we get.

USW International President Leo Gerard said orking families "cannot tolerate another corporate apologist on the U.S. Supreme Court, fawning over CEOs and stomping on the rights of workers".

The Gallup Poll was conducted between July 2nd and July 8th with a 3 percent margin of error.
