What does Trump's Supreme Court pick mean for abortion in Minnesota?

What does Trump's Supreme Court pick mean for abortion in Minnesota?

That fight is also making its way to the Sunshine State. "Like Trump's first nominee a year ago, Justice Neil Gorsuch, Kavanaugh would be a young addition who could help remake the court for decades with rulings that could restrict abortion, expand gun rights and roll back key parts of" Obamacare".

Now, that Trump has picked Brett Kavanaugh as Kennedy's replacement, some aren't too happy with that choice. Speakers included Millie Zehnder of Orlando, a Florida State University student, and Ray Seaman of Progress Florida and Florida Why Courts Matter Coalition.

"I will oppose Judge Kavanaugh's nomination with everything I have, and I hope a bipartisan majority will do the same", Schumer said in a statement. "Whether you care about access to health care, reproductive rights, voting rights, protecting our environment, LGBT equality, or criminal justice reform, the fate of them all hang in the balance".

Speaking at the White House, Kavanaugh pledged to preserve the Constitution and said that "a judge must be independent and must interpret the law, not make the law".

Kavanaugh was confirmed to his position on the Court of Appeals in 2006.

For example, he was in the minority when the appeals court decided previous year to allow an undocumented immigrant in custody to seek an abortion. While Schumer has been vocal about the damage that he believes the Supreme Court, with the addition of President Trump's latest nominee, could do to liberal policies, some other Democrats are resistant to his calls for unity. They want to protect and practice the Constitution as it was written at all costs, and to leave it to a real legislature, elected by the people, to make necessary changes if and when changes are necessary. "V. Wade", asked the Moderator.

"I don't think that's going to happen", she said.

"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.

"What people don't understand is that just because you take away the right to abortion doesn't mean that abortion goes away", said Kimberly Scott with the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates. With Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., receiving cancer treatment in his home state, Republicans need all 50 Republicans, plus Pence as a tiebreaker, to confirm Kavanaugh, assuming no Democrats join them.

"I expect Kavanaugh will be very much in the mold of Chief Justice Roberts, who has generally been friendly to business", Russell Wheeler, a visiting fellow at the Brookings Institution. North Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz is one of them. "We are proud that so many of those hires have been talented women".

Around eight months later, Kavanaugh got involved in another contentious case in Florida. How do these men - and Brett Kavanaugh now - fit in with what you want to see from the USA judiciary?

Democrats have turned their attention to pressuring two Republicans, Sens.
