Supreme Court Abortion Rights Threat Will Be Election Boost for Democrats

Supreme Court Abortion Rights Threat Will Be Election Boost for Democrats

If Roe v Wade was overturned, 24 U.S. states would likely move to ban or severely limit abortion upon reconvening, at earliest within seven months of the supreme court's decision. Long the favorite of Washington, D.C. legal conservatives, especially those who began their career in the Reagan administration.

With the retirement of swing vote Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, Trump and his Republican allies in the Senate plan to install a conservative justice who could re-define the law of the land on some of the nation's most explosive policy debates - none bigger than abortion.

The president also said. And the Trump White House, while disorganized in other areas, made its relationship with the religious right a priority. The future of Kennedy's seat has been a moment abortion rights opponents and supporters alike have been anticipating for years because Kennedy historically sided with the liberals on the court in favor of protecting abortion rights.

There are already two cases before appellate courts, one level down from the supreme court, that could give the country's highest court an opportunity to limit abortion access as soon as June 2019.

About the only thing one could say for certain about the eventual nominee was that he or she would be young (the median age of the reported five finalists is 48) and that their resumes show all to be without question conservative.

Twenty-four states have anti-abortion legislatures, making it likely they would move to enact abortion restrictions after a supreme court decision further restricted abortion.

Steven Law, president of the Senate Leadership Fund, a campaign group aligned with McConnell, said the group is running digital ads in 10 states that Trump won in 2016 where Democratic senators are now up for re-election. Gun rights or restrictions were the most-cited issue, followed by health care, then civil rights.

For Republicans' part, they need to balance actively campaigning against the trio in 2018, while courting their votes for the Supreme Court nominee. "Heidi will vote "no" for any pick we make for the Supreme Court", Trump said.

Unlike Heitkamp, Donnelly and Manchin are Democrats who generally oppose abortion rights and are endorsed by Democrats for Life, the "pro-life voice of the Democratic Party".

"We have to pick one that's going to be there 40 years, 45 years", Trump said at a rally on Thursday.
