Meyers said that when faced with questions involving immigration law, Kethledge "takes the same approach he takes in every other case - he faithfully interprets and applies the laws as written and adopted by the politically accountable branches".

We are calling for a personal liberty standard, that a Senate must only confirm a justice who affirmatively declares that they believe that the Constitution protects individual liberty and the right of all people to make personal decisions about their bodies and their personal relationships, including the use of contraception, the right to have an abortion and the freedom to marry who you choose. Kavanaugh's close ties to the Bush family, stemming from his five years in the White House under President George W. Bush, might not be a positive to Trump, who has sparred with the Bushes.

That list, he pointed out, was vetted by organizations committed to overturning Roe and shrinking government's role in health care. The four that have been one a smaller shortlist than the one Trump used to select Neil Gorsuch to the apex court earlier.

Following Kennedy's announcement, Trump acknowledged again that after a new justice is seated, a woman's right to access an abortion could fall to states to determine.

On Election Day 2016, a fifth of all voters said the Supreme Court was their No. 1 voting issue - and a lot of them voted for Trump, says Mallory Quigley, spokesperson for the Susan B. Anthony List, which supports antiabortion candidates and lobbies on behalf of law and policy restricting abortion rights. "And that's exactly what happened today", she said.

The advocacy group plans to protest outside of senators' offices.

Three Democratic senators voted for Gorsuch past year: Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, and Joe Manchin of West Virginia. "On Monday I will be announcing my decision for Justice of the United States Supreme Court!"

Trump 'baby' to fly over London during president's visit
Smyth expressed doubts that the president would stop by for a pint but said he would "have a pint of stout ready for him in case". Trump's avoidance of London sparked speculation that he is trying to avoid protesters on Downing Street.

President Trump's list for the Supreme Court nominees is down to the final three. If the pressure is enough, Manchin could likely bend to the White House's will on a Supreme Court nominee.

"It's a very thin line between putting a woman in prison for a stillbirth or a miscarriage that she's blamed for-for something she did during her pregnancy-and criminalizing abortions", Roberts claimed. Women must receive counseling that discourages abortion and almost all of the state's women (94 percent) live in counties where no clinic provides abortion. Indeed, her Monday afternoon campaign event was focused on that very issue.

WERTHEIMER: One of the most interesting things I think about the current court, with - when Judge Kennedy was on it, was how many Catholics there were.

"Now look, these things are not something that I couldn't get over if I heard the right things out of him".

"Why won't she rule out voting for Trump's anti-choice picks?" each spot asks. In her 20s she co-authored a paper that said Catholic judges, if they are faithful to church teachings, are "morally precluded" from enforcing the death penalty. "He then adds that to how he feels and comes to a conclusion". It was Collins and Murkowski who cast two of the votes that sank the G.O.P. effort to dismantle the Affordable Care Act (ACA) last summer. Jim Kessler, vice president of Third Way, the centrist Democratic group, said of Obama's Affordable Care Act, which the Senate narrowly thwarted Trump from dismantling past year.

"For my part, I will do everything in my power to keep politics out of the confirmation process".

The possibility of a solid conservative replacing Kennedy's swing vote on the nine-member court is on the minds of Democratic lawmakers and activists who fear a reversal of Roe v. Wade.
