Planned Parenthood: Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Will 'Wreak Havoc' on Abortion

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. "We're going to protect ourselves because this is the state that has always stood up for what's right".

"Despite being only 53 years of age, Judge Kavanaugh has more than 12 years' experience as a judge on the most prestigious federal appeals court in the country", said Rev. Jason J. McGuire, the group's executive director. In the New York Legislature, Democrats enjoy an overwhelming 104-41 Assembly majority, but a razor-thin 32-31 Senate majority (the Senate now has a Republican majority leader due to a power-sharing agreement between the Independent Democratic Conference and Senate Republicans).

Republican Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and Rand Paul of Kentucky could potentially have some problems with Kavanaugh.

"This is really a non-issue in NY, but the governor has been acting like a chicken without a head, yelling, 'The sky is falling!", Michael Long, veteran chairman of the state Conservative Party, told CNHI. Dean Heller of Nevada. Gardner chairs the GOP's Senate campaign arm.

Kavanaugh is an active member of The Federalist Society, a group that had been helping Trump with his list of candidates.

But the bigger unknown is now centered around Kavanaugh's so far undisclosed position on abortion rights and the landmark Supreme Court decision in Roe vs. Wade. Gorsuch was confirmed in April of a year ago, with the help of three Senate Democrats who are up for re-election in states Trump won. "Alaska Right to Life wants to make sure and urge both Senators Murkowski and Sullivan to confirm a justice that recognizes the personhood of the child in the womb".

"B$3 locking [Kavanaugh] is actually the moderate thing to do", said Hogue.

The head of the lobbying arm of Planned Parenthood in New York State, Robin Chappelle Golston, of Planned Parenthood Empire State Acts, says her group is grateful for Cuomo's efforts, and she puts the blame back on the Republicans. "Now more than ever we need experienced leaders who understand the importance of protecting access to abortion in New York state", said Robin Chappell Golston, president of Planned Parenthood's New York State political arm.

"One of the factors that is looked at [in overturning a case] is whether there's been a reliance of the public on the earlier ruling", said Russell. "Are they right to be concerned about that?"

One case that could affect abortion might come if IN decides to appeal a 7th Circuit Court of Appeals decision that ruled that the state could not ban an abortion after a Down syndrome diagnosis. But, you know, it's gotten so political around here that they even politicize these type of nominations.

In his dissent, Kavanaugh conceded that unauthorized immigrants on USA soil do have a right to due process under the 14th Amendment, but wrote that undocumented youth in custody were not entitled to "abortion on demand".

A legal challenge to Roe would likely come in the form of a case challenging current state-level restrictions on abortion, Shumaker said.
