Vanderbilt law professor believes Roe v. Wade won't be overturned

The announcement, made before the identity of President Donald Trump's latest judicial nominee was revealed, said the measure was a safeguard against "an extreme conservative Supreme Court Justice who could roll back advancements in reproductive health care".

Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo has urged Republican state lawmakers to reconsider their opposition to legislation codifying abortion rights in NY state law.

Asked by CNN's Dana Bash if he still personally want to see Roe v. Wade overturned, Pence said "I do, but I haven't been nominated to the Supreme Court. God forbid they do what they intend to do, which is overturn Roe v. Wade", Cuomo said.

Pence said that Kavanaugh had 12 opinions that were later adopted by the Supreme Court, and rebuffed Schumer and his Empire State colleague Sen.

Stefanik believes the legality of Roe v. Wade is settled law.

On Tuesday's "PBS NewsHour", Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) stated, "I don't think anybody is going to overturn Roe v. Wade".

Robin Chappelle Golston, the head of Planned Parenthood Empire State Acts - the lobbying arm of Planned Parenthood in NY state - said her group is grateful for Cuomo's efforts, and she puts the blame back on the Republicans. "And that's, I think, wrong". "It has been decided by the Supreme Court".

New York's junior senator called on the American public to lobby their senators, which she said could help to torpedo his nomination despite Republicans controlling the Senate. The group is specifically targeting vulnerable Senate Republicans including Sens.

As for what he says about NY law being tougher on abortion than Roe, that's marginally true. Rand Paul, a fierce opponent of government surveillance that some critics say Kavanaugh would vote to legitimize, vowed to keep an "open mind" on his nomination.

"He's so frightened of Cynthia Nixon that he's drinking the political Kool-Aid served by radicals and socialists who now control the Democratic Party", said Giove.

A spokeswoman for the Senate Republicans, Candice Giove, said the bill would allow nondoctors to perform abortions and might lessen rights of pregnant women who suffer physical abuse.

Kathleen Gallagher, the director of pro-life activities for the New York State Catholic Conference, a key opponent, said that the governor's proposal would make late-term abortion available "for nearly any reason", would let health providers other than doctors perform abortions and would eliminate the crime of an "unwanted abortional act".
