Hegan on SCOTUS pick, protecting Roe v Wade

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

He says he can require them to return, but he can't require them to take a vote. It was public pressure that prevented a full repeal of the Affordable Care Act past year, and abortion-rights advocates will likely be at least as loud as the Senate hearings for Kennedy's replacement get underway. Those laws, passed long after Roe was handed down, would make abortion illegal if and when the Supreme Court were to say Roe is no more.

Roe v. Wade was first argued in December 1971, re-argued in October 1972, and decided on January 22, 1973, when it became the law of the land.

"On the question of Roe v. Wade, if confirmed to the D.C. Circuit, I would follow Roe v. Wade faithfully and fully".

METZGER: Right. So one reason why abortion is going to be a battleground for the court going forward is that states constantly impose new restrictions on abortion of different kind. And do you consider yourself to be a judicial nominee like the president said he was going to nominate people in the mold of Scalia and Thomas.

By endorsing the legal fiction that the highest law of the land protects the "right to define one's own concept of existence, of meaning, of the universe, and of the mystery of human life", the Court has done an end-run around the safeguards the document was meant to place on the federal government, and usurped the democratic power of the American people.

Despite the current presence of Roe v. Wade laws, it hasn't stopped plenty of states from severely limiting access to abortion services, or even just simply putting "trigger" laws on the books that would effectively illegalize abortion in that specific state if the Roe laws were to be overturned at any point in time whatsoever.

U.S. indicts 12 Russian intel officers for hacking Democrats in 2016
There is no allegation in the indictment that any American participated knowingly in the GRU cyberattacks, Rosenstein said . Trump and Putin are scheduled to hold talks Monday in Finland, a meeting largely sought by Trump.

The Roe v. Wade decision has also played an important role in subsequent Supreme Court cases about regulations surrounding abortion rights.

Pence stressed that the White House is looking "forward to working very closely with you, Leader, to advance the Senate's proper role" in considering Kavanaugh's nomination. Given that Roe's central finding - that the decision to have an abortion falls under the constitutional right to privacy - has been upheld three times, even an anti-abortion court might be loath to overrule it in its entirety. In a statement on Monday, the Women's March said ominously: "Trump's announcement today is a death sentence for thousands of women in the United States".

CNN has reported that the administration managed to reunite fewer than half of the eligible separated migrant families in its care by a court-imposed deadline on Tuesday - as the fates of thousands more remain in limbo. She said that "in fact, Trump considered running against the governor in 2014". "A whole generation of women have grown up... with this as an understood right that they've had". "On one hand, she has said that she supports Planned Parenthood and women's issues, but on the other hand she has voted for all the radical judges that have been put forward". A woman would have to get information on abortion then wait a certain period. And while Kavanaugh has made no published rulings on whether women have a constitutional right to an abortion, the concern is that he could provide the crucial fifth votes to overturn the historic Roe v. Wade decision that said women have a constitutional right to abortion.

Chemerinsky also said that he thinks "Roe will be threatened" by a change in the Court's ideological makeup, but it won't be the only case to be challenged.

As for Cuomo's opinion on whether Kavanaugh should be confirmed?
