Gov. Andrew Cuomo calls for special session on abortion rights

  • Democrats’ court-packing talk is just crazy

"'Roe v. Wade" is dead", Toobin said during a CNN panel discussion of Kavanaugh's appointment. "I'm not going to comment on those particular cases right now".

MA has had a law on the books since the 19th century that criminalizes abortion - even though it's basically unenforceable because of Roe v. Wade. 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. Actors Jon Voight and Robert Davi will star as two Supreme Court Justices.

So Supreme Court precedent is not sacrosanct. No one should pretend that Roe v. Wade was handed down to us on stone tablets from God.

Blumenthal added, "The next justice on this Supreme Court will probably be the swing vote in deciding whether [the president] has to comply with a subpoena" from Mueller if a subpoena is issued. He frequently sided with conservatives to uphold abortion restrictions.

President Trump's top outside adviser on his Supreme Court nomination said he's "very confident" Republicans can "get anybody confirmed", but a leading Democratic senator suggested that the president is making himself "a puppet" by selecting a Supreme Court nominee from a list compiled by conservative groups.

Democrats did not immediately begin to react against Republican judicial nominees, however.

However, Republican Sen. John McCain - being treated for brain cancer in his home state of Arizona - is not expected to be well enough to come to Washington to vote.

Spring Fire grows to almost 107,000 acres, at least 132 homes burned
Fueled by hot, dry winds, the newspaper wrote, the fire "ignited a tree, jumped the river and spread into nearby hills". Firefighters had begun inspecting the fire zone, which covers an area almost three times the size of San Francisco.

After an initial burst of enthusiasm about the court opening, Republican politicians have characterized any questions about Roe's fate as scaremongering by Democrats. She and a few other "controversial people" will make cameos in the film.

All this means the outcome of a confirmation vote is uncertain.

Wisconsin is one of 10 states carried in 2016 by Trump where a Democratic senator is facing reelection this year.

Most Republicans want to put the Supreme Court out of reach of the left for a generation or more.

Leo, who is on leave from the conservative Federalist Society to advise Trump on his Supreme Court pick, would not confirm whether Trump had made his final selection.

As President Trump zeroes in on his nomination to replace Justice Anthony M. Kennedy on the Supreme Court, abortion has returned to the forefront of a national debate, and to a degree not seen since the 1980s. Because Roe had not been decided by a close vote (the vote was actually 7-2), and because it had bipartisan support, with both liberal and conservative justices on the Court voting with the majority and with key leaders in both political parties endorsing the decision, no one at the time, whether inside or outside of the pro-life movement, thought an imminent reversal of the decision was likely. "I am a staunch pro-abortion feminist activist, and I will not be party to such disgusting propaganda".
