Cuomo threatens legal action if Roe v. Wade is overturned

Share

U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin announced Thursday that she will join fellow Democrats in opposing President Donald Trump's pick for the Supreme Court, saying Brett Kavanaugh would "turn back the clock on a woman's constitutional right and freedom to make her own health care choices".

"As a point of comparison, look at Bob Casey who is also up for re-election in the Trump-won state of Pennsylvania".

How many Democratic Senators will vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh?

Fourth, senators will also demand to see a treasure trove of documents that may unlock previously hidden aspects of Kavanaugh's views. In the case of a 17-year-old undocumented immigrant who was seeking an abortion, he dissented from the majority ruling and voted that she shouldn't be allowed to obtain the procedure. "The people of Wisconsin need a fair, impartial and independent Supreme Court Justice who will stand up for them, not for powerful special interests".

Kavanaugh wrote a dissenting opinion in the 2011 case Heller v. District of Columbia, in which his two colleagues upheld a D.C. law banning most semi-automatic rifles.

Cuomo now says he'll sue the federal government if the court overturns Roe v. Wade.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY has already said of Kavanaugh that he'd "oppose him with everything I've got", and signaled Wednesday that Democrats would be vetting not only Kavanaugh's record on the bench but also his work as an official in the George W. Bush White House and for the special prosecutor during Bill Clinton's presidency.

Despite Democrats attempt to demonize him, Kavanaugh came off great when Trump introduced him to the American public as his nominee.

King said the other reason is that the person will replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, considered the swing vote on the court.

Republicans have a 51-49 majority in the Senate.

However, the news of this endorsement was undermined by another letter signed by Kavanaugh's fellow alumnus of Yale Law School. Republican Sens. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska are among those on his radar.

United States Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh started working to secure his place on the high court Tuesday. Manchin has. But Donnelly echoed Manchin when he said, "I work for the people of IN and I want them to have a voice IN this".

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has vowed to oppose Kavanaugh with every means at his disposal.

"Politics have deeply harmed our Supreme Court nomination process", Gluck said. "He will get a lot of questions from senators of both parties that reach into his background, and then they'll delve into the Minnesota Law Review article and try to figure out how this will play out going forward", Covington said.
