Kavanaugh Nomination Sparks Partisan Uproar On Abortion Rights

Kavanaugh Nomination Sparks Partisan Uproar On Abortion Rights

"Any judge who demonstrated hostility to Roe would not be a person that I could vote for".

The stakes are high. The Republican-controlled Senate blocked his nomination and changed the Senate rules so that a nominee couldn't be confirmed in an election year.

The information falls under the article's headline: "Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh piled up credit card debt by purchasing Nationals tickets, White House says". "So again, that's why I think all of us need to be doing our due diligence".

"The @GOP and leaders like @LindseyGrahamSC and @SenateMajLdr seem to care more about a typo in a press release than they do about the future, safety, and rights of women, children, and our nation's most marginalized communities", the group said in another tweet. "This is an opportunity for senators to put partisanship aside and consider his legal qualifications with the fairness, respect and seriousness that a Supreme Court nomination ought to command".

"Judge Kavanaugh argued that a president should not be subject to an investigation while in office, that a president should be above criminal and civil indictments", Schumer said. Should he be confirmed, Kavanaugh makes the Supreme Court solidly conservative, joining Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Neil Gorsuch providing a five-vote majority. Bash asked, referring to the possibility of Kavanaugh going rogue and not exploiting opportunities to reverse Roe, to which Pence replied that what the president was looking for in a Supreme Court pick was above all fidelity to the U.S. Constitution. Four states - North Dakota, South Dakota, Mississippi, and Louisiana - would automatically ban abortions.

"We have known this moment was coming, and so over a year we have been organizing in these Senate battleground states", she said, "knowing that these senators would be key to a confirmation battle". Trump signed Kavanaugh's nomination papers Monday evening in the White House residence.

Kavanaugh is a favorite of the GOP legal establishment, and his arrival as President Donald Trump's nominee was greeted on Capitol Hill with praise from Republicans and skepticism from Democrats. Kennedy provided a decisive vote in 2015 on an important fair housing case.

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

"We're not fooled by the argument that Kavanaugh isn't a "bomb-thrower" or that he's made no extreme controversial rulings", read another tweet.

She said that with Kavanaugh's credentials, "it's very hard for anyone to tell me that he's not qualified for the job".
