Pence: ‘I do’ still want Roe v. Wade to be overturned

That's the question now that President Trump has chosen conservative Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy. 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, a moderate Republican and abortion rights supporter from ME, is seen as a swing vote in the confirmation of the next Supreme Court justice.

Stacey Dash landed a major role in an upcoming movie profiling the epic Roe v. Wade case.

"We think there are 22 states likely to ban abortion without Roe" because of a combination of factors including existing laws and regulations on the books and the positions of the governors and state legislatures, says Amy Myrick, staff attorney at the Center for Reproductive Rights, which represents abortion-rights advocates in court.

But she added: "No one can give you a definitive answer on what will happen in that scenario".

MSNBC host Ali Velshi asked Roberts about a tweet she wrote saying women would be under fire from all these different directions if the Supreme Court overturned Roe. A more conservative justice could move the court to the right, potentially for decades, and could potentially vote with the majority to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Overturning Roe would accelerate the process, abortion rights activists say, because states would no longer have to worry about a federal judge standing in their way.

Cuomo, speaking at a rally attended by women's groups who support the right to choose abortion, said the Supreme Court already has become a "rubber stamp" for Trump, upholding his administration's travel ban for people from some Muslim majority countries, and approving what Cuomo said are the president's "anti-union" sentiments in the recent Janus decision that makes it harder for unions to collect dues from nonmembers who benefit from union contracts. Elective abortion through the second trimester was legal in four states, and abortion in cases of rape or medical necessity was legal in thirteen others. Instead, the supposed right to abortions sprang from the imaginations of liberal activists who invented nonexistent constitutional rights to advance their ideological agenda.

Demonstrators on both sides of the abortion issues protest in front of the Supreme Court on June 25, 2018.

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. The idea that it was Roe that produced legal abortion in the United States is a modern myth that no pro-life activist in 1973 believed. Countless studies have pointed to the unparalleled impact of birth control in helping women build careers, achieve higher education, have healthier babies when they want to, and improve their overall quality of life. In 1981, she testified before Congress in support of a bill that, if passed, would have allowed states to prosecute abortion as murder, The New York Times reports.

"ROE V. WADE is the untold story of how people lied, how the media lied, and how the courts were manipulated to pass a law that has since killed over 60 Million Americans", reads the page seeking funds for the film. To see more, visit Kaiser Health News.
