Pence Says He Hasn't Spoken With Kavanaugh About Roe v. Wade

J. Scott Applewhite  AP

As Judge Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination tees up another national debate about reproductive rights, is it too much to ask that abortion's impact on the black population be part of the discussion?

"I'm definitely pro-life, " he said.

"I don't have an impression on judge Kavanaugh as to where he may fall on the issue of abortion, as well as the many other issues that I will weigh as we move forward with this process", Murkowski said, "So again, that's why I think all of us need to be doing our due diligence".

"The court cares about things like its own legitimacy", says Myrick, "and how often a precedent has been upheld in the past".

Kavanaugh has said he would follow Supreme Court precedent on the abortion issue - but Allred doesn't trust him. or the Senators who are expected to grill him during his confirmation hearing.

KING: Sarah Weddington was a 26-year-old attorney from Texas when she argued Roe v. Wade in front of the Supreme Court and won. The ruling found a constitutional right to privacy extends to a woman's decision to have an abortion. Jane Roe was a legal pseudonym of the plaintiff, Norma McCorvey.

McCorvey's journey to becoming Jane Roe began after she tried to have an abortion while pregnant with her third child. But she later publicly acknowledged that had been a lie. Cuomo naturally wants abortion removed entirely from the Penal Code if possible, which would presumably make the dream of abortion on demand up to the moment of crowning a reality. We need to get ready by electing legislators and governors now who support women's reproductive rights.

The ruling effectively prohibited states from banning abortion before a fetus could be considered viable outside of the womb. McCorvey gave birth to her third child, whom she put up for adoption.

She later reversed her position after undergoing a political and religious conversion. "And I will always strive to preserve the Constitution of the United States and the American rule of law".

"We're looking at a really deep push in states like Nevada and Colorado", said Hogue.

Reversing the landmark case would not automatically make abortion illegal across the country. Many years after Roe v. Wade, you wrote in your memoir that as a young woman, you had an abortion.

"More recently, Whole Women's Health v. Hellerstedt clarified the undue burden standard in Casey", Shumaker added.

Since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973, approximately 60 million children have been aborted in the United States, with almost 1 million occurring in 2014, the most recent year on record. So they started out doing counseling about contraception, how to prevent pregnancy.

The second category involves regulations on abortion providers.

Legal experts, however, told Business Insider the more likely scenario is for the court to slowly chip away at abortion access one decision at a time.

Whenever a president nominates a Supreme Court justice, you can guarantee a backlash from their political opponents.

Unlike many states, New Mexico has no major types of abortion restrictions, such as waiting periods or mandated parental involvement. They're already pointing to their worry about Roe v. Wade, about whether it will be overturned.

"The kind of cases that will come up will probably be like that", said Russell.

Roe v. Wade changed that, but it brought on something other than freedom of choice.
