Abortion Groups Protest Kavanaugh, Launch Ad Campaign Targeting Vulnerable Republicans

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

With Justice Anthony M. Kennedy's retirement, Trump nominated Kavanaugh, a politically connected member of Washington's conservative legal establishment, who is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade, the US Supreme Court's ruling on a woman's right to abortion.

New York State Lieutenant Governor candidate Jumaane Williams, the son of Grenadian immigrants, who represents the 45th Council District in Brooklyn, was arrested Monday night outside Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan as he protested the President's nomination of District of Columbia's Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the highest court in America.

Cuomo signed the order on Tuesday, and said at a pro-abortion rally at the Yonkers Public Library's Will branch there was "no question" Judge Brett Kavanaugh "will overturn Roe v. Wade".

Fitzpatrick said there is a long-held doctrine at the Supreme Court that most justices adhere to, "Let Things Stand".

Cuomo argued for state legislators to enact a law that legalizes abortion just as Roe v. Wade did. "I find it hard to think that [Chief Justice] Roberts - who has a more long-term view of the arc of the court and a desire to preserve its institutional role - would facially overrule Roe". She said the breakaway Democrats helped Republicans remain in control of the Senate for the past eight legislative sessions.

Kavanaugh must be be confirmed by the Senate, which Republicans control 51-49.

President Trump announces Supreme Court pick
The others are Republican targets for the confirmation vote who come from Trump-won states where they face re-election this fall. He said that picking a new justice was the most important responsibility of his office other than matters of war.

"Precedent plays an important role in promoting stability and evenhandedness", Roberts said at the time.

"He would put our rights and democratic priorities in jeopardy, including the Affordable Care Act, protections for the environment, organized labor, LGBTQ rights and the protections of Roe v. Wade", said Cuomo in a statement.

Roe, and the now controlling precedent Planned Parenthood v. Casey, created a federal constitutional right to abortion. Rand Paul, a fierce opponent of government surveillance that some critics say Kavanaugh would vote to legitimize, vowed to keep an "open mind" on his nomination.

I've said this before but the awful truth of it bears repeating: Chris is the "smart Cuomo". If not for that alliance, Nixon said, Democrats could have been in power and the measure already would have become law.

"I do not think it particularly likely that Roe (and Casey) are likely to be overturned based on this one appointment", Glenn Cohen, a professor at Harvard Law School and constitutional expert told Business Insider in June.
