Senator Grassley backs President’s Supreme Court nominee

  • President Trump nominates Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court during an event in the East Room of the White House in Washington

Many on the left are concerned that a Trump appointee could join a conservative majority in taking away abortion rights and overturn Roe v. Wade, which Trump made a campaign promise to do. Twenty-eight percent of Americans responded that they would like to see Roe overturned.

"The President vowed to appoint judges to the Supreme Court who would overturn Roe v. Wade, and I can not support a nominee for a lifetime appointment who would turn back the clock on a woman's constitutional right and freedom to make her own health care choices, including access to birth control", Baldwin said in a statement.

The poll also found the American public is torn on whether a "qualified" and "ethical" Supreme Court nominee should be evaluated on his stance on a specific issue. "If we put another two or perhaps three justices on, that will happen".

U.S. Rep. Lois Frankel brought a striking visual aid - a wire coat hanger - to a briefing for reporters in Washington, D.C., as a way of dramatizing the importance of abortion rights in the debate over whether Brett Kavanaugh should be confirmed as a Supreme Court justice.

The letter from 18 women calls Kavanaugh "one of the strongest advocates in the federal judiciary for women lawyers".

In 2017, Kavanaugh wrote in a dissenting opinion that an undocumented teenager should not be allowed to seek an abortion while in custody at the US border in Texas.

Democrats hope two Republicans who back abortion rights, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, will vote against the nominee.

"We'll be DAMNED if we're going to let five MEN-including some frat boy named Brett-strip us of our hard-won bodily autonomy and reproductive rights", tweeted pro-choice organization NARAL.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh listens to Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, on Capitol Hill, July 11, 2018.

He said his committee will examine the 300 cases Kavanaugh has made decisions in before bringing the nomination to a vote in the full Senate.

A 2017 report from the Center for Public Integrity said that at least six of the nine justices were millionaires, with Justice Stephen Breyer reporting a minimum net worth of $6.15 million in 2016 and Chief Justice John Roberts a minimum reportable net worth of more than $5 million. "Abortion is a right I feel must not go away, and I feel like people aren't mobilizing so much because it's so complicated and it's hard to understand".
