Vanderbilt law professor believes Roe v. Wade won't be overturned

"Judge Kavanaugh is an experienced, principled jurist with a strong record of protecting life and constitutional rights, as evidenced by his opinions in Garza v. Hargan and Priests for Life v. HHS", Dannenfelser said. It was public pressure that prevented a full repeal of the Affordable Care Act a year ago, and abortion-rights advocates will likely be at least as loud as the Senate hearings for Kennedy's replacement get underway.

Outside Florida's Supreme Court, protestors are making their case for opposing Kavanaugh's appointment. "And over 70 percent of Americans support keeping it the law of the land", Wesolowski said.

Among those ages 50 to 64, 74% know that Roe v. Wade dealt with abortion, the highest percentage of any age group. She initially claimed to have been raped, which might have allowed her to have an abortion legally since Texas law made exceptions for cases of rape and incest. "[Sen.] Dean Heller, R-Nev., is going to have to stand by his vote in November in a hugely pro-choice state, and [Sen.] Cory Gardner, R-Colo., [is] up in 2020". He is as sure as any lawyer can be that a woman's right to an abortion will not be overturned.

"Even if the case to overthrow Roe isn't now in the court, you can be sure that there is a road map that's being planned by conservative groups", said Russell. Some of those states have already passed laws banning abortion after 20-weeks, laws that are sometimes deemed unconstitutional by the courts, but would be fair game without Roe.

Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren has once again caused a firestorm on the right for voicing a pro-choice view, this time, begging the right not to "push" for the overturn of Roe v. Wade. "Some supporters are getting more creative - considering donating air miles so women can travel for abortions and looking into building or finding temporary housing for women in places where abortion will likely remain legal should Roe be overturned".

The Missouri proposal states that "nothing in this constitution secures or protects a right to abortion or requires the funding of an abortion".

GILLIAN METZGER: Well, Casey, to begin with, reaffirmed the basic principle of Roe that women have a constitutional right to choose to end a pregnancy. Most don't ever come near the Supreme Court.

"Andrew Cuomo will take donations from anyone", Nixon said in a fundraising pitch as supporters looked on.

A spokeswoman for the Senate Republicans, Candice Giove, answered Cuomo's charges, saying in a statement, that "Women's health issues deserve more than political stunts with stolen one-liners from 'The Apprentice.'" Giove says the Reproductive Health Act would allow non-doctors to perform abortions and also waters downs rights for pregnant women who are physically abused. "So there is a lot to go through", she said. Some women may not know they are pregnant at that point. A woman would have to get information on abortion then wait a certain period.

In remarks transcribed by the governor's office, Cuomo said: "For years, what the Republicans in the [Albany] Senate have said, 'well, we don't need ny law because we have Roe v. Wade and nobody's insane enough to try to roll back Roe v. Wade'".

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. "And so the question is whether Kavanaugh, if he's confirmed, replaces him as that justice who's perhaps more in the middle".
