Donald Trump focused on Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge for Supreme Court

Judge Amy Coney Barrett a potential Supreme Court nominee has defended overturning precedents

She was confirmed with 55 bi-partisan votes, one more vote than Justice Gorsuch received.

Kethledge's record shows that in his case, the answer is a resounding yes. Her stance on abortion has the GOP happy and the Democrats anxious.

Justice Kennedy for decades was viewed as a crucial swing vote on a polarized court, the deciding force to preserve the core of the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision.

"Two issues of ... profound effect, which could well defeat a nominee who opposes them, are the fate of affordable health care and a woman's freedom to make the most sensitive medical decisions about her body", he wrote in a New York Times op-ed Monday.

"Her judicial philosophy is well known from her many academic writings, so she would not be a dreaded stealth nominee who would provoke conservative opposition", stated a letter to Trump from leaders of the socially conservative American Family Association, American Principles Projection, and the Judicial Action Group.

If Roe v. Wade is overturned.

Trump plans to unveil his choice Monday. But is that a top issue for voters in a midterm election year?




Trump met with some possible candidates this weekend at his golf resort in Bedminster, N.J., and at the White House on Monday but Lee's spokesman Conn Carroll said he was unaware if the senator had met with the president.

"There have been a slew-hundreds-of bills, many of them passed that are already drastically restricting women's access to abortion", she said, singling out a Texas law as one of the worst. Democrats need to hold as many of those red-state seats as they can in the midterms, lest the next Supreme Court nomination be decided by 55 or 56 Republicans instead of 50.

President Trump will announce his next Supreme Court nominee in less than a week, and one name popping up on everybody's short list is Amy Coney Barrett.

Garland, who also is Jewish, was President Barack Obama's nominee in 2016 following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.

The Supreme Court in Washington. On Facebook, he calls the high-court vacancy McCaskill's "nightmare". 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. Prior to that, he spent most of his career in private practice. Indeed, her Monday afternoon campaign event was focused on that very issue. "And even with Republicans' slim majority, senators on both sides of the aisle would have little trouble giving their advice and consent to a nominee they have served alongside for years". "Mike Lee. I think he would be extraordinary".

Debates over Kavanaugh's work with Bush and rulings he has made on health care and abortion continued to churn Thursday as critics urged the president to shy away from a judge with an establishment Republican pedigree. His state has not expanded Medicaid, for instance, and rural hospitals keep closing. Once that is determined then we can set a particular date for the vetting, my worry is that we're about three weeks from rising and we may want all these things done before we rise. As I've said before, the Democrats can use some procedures to slow the process down, but they cannot stop it. Lee was asked last week at a town hall meeting if he would consider shifting from the Senate to the Supreme Court: "I would not say no", he replied. She could literally lose five votes (e.g., two Republicans and three Democrats) and still be confirmed to the Supreme Court.
