Vice President Mike Pence told Fox News exclusively on Tuesday that he has been "very encouraged" by the initial reaction on Capitol Hill to Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court.
Gov. Cuomo has been calling on lawmakers to increase protections in NY.
Andrew Cuomo said Wednesday he is so passionate about keeping abortion legal in the United States that he would sue if the Supreme Court were to overturn Roe v. Wade.
"I don't have an impression on judge Kavanaugh as to where he may fall on the issue of abortion, as well as the many other issues that I will weigh as we move forward with this process", Murkowski said, "So again, that's why I think all of us need to be doing our due diligence". He argued that "the Supreme Court has repeatedly said that the government has permissible interests in favoring fetal life, protecting the best interests of the minor, and not facilitating abortion, so long as the government does not impose an undue burden on the abortion decision". "And there's no way anybody would ever think of overturning Roe v. Wade,'" Cuomo said.More news: Babies who eat solid foods earlier sleep better, study finds
Pence himself inadvertently added to those concerns on Tuesday, when asked whether he still supported overturning Roe v. Wade. "That would be binding precedent", he said at the time.
He not only is a Constitutional Law expert, but Fitzpatrick also knows the thinking of a Supreme Court Justice.
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. "But that is something that I'm going to be looking at", she said.
Cohen thinks the more likely scenario is for the majority-conservative Supreme Court to incrementally chip away at abortion access with a series of rulings, a strategy some call "death by 1,000 cuts". "So there is a lot to go through", she said.More news: Steven Gerrard says England will beat Croatia and are a 'dangerous' team
Kavanaugh must be be confirmed by the Senate, which Republicans control 51-49. If not for that alliance, Nixon said, Democrats could have been in power and the measure already would have become law.
Roe, and the now controlling precedent Planned Parenthood v. Casey, created a federal constitutional right to abortion.
