Would Kavanaugh Help Overturn Roe v. Wade? Some Doubt It

Kavanaugh, a conservative judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, has the support of anti-abortion groups and could play a key role in attempts to limit or overturn the 1973 landmark Roe v. Wade case, as a number of abortion cases make their way through the lower courts. Between 1970 and the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, the situation was that many women of some means travelled to NY for abortions while women of less means continued to die from performing their own or having them botched by others. "But, with the ability of the court to sort of move at the margins and let a regulation stand here and let another regulation stand there, when you add it all up it restricts access".

Nonetheless, Jeanne Mancini, the president of anti-abortion rights March for Life said in a statement to Business Insider that Kavanaugh was "exceptionally qualified for the role and will no doubt serve as a fair, independent judge who will remain faithful to the Constitution".

Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser, who has always been an advocate for Donald Trump as well as the appointment of Supreme Court Justices who would overturn the anti-abortion laws, stated that "Judge Kavanaugh is an experienced, principled jurist with a strong record of protecting life and constitutional rights".

Even now, with Roe v. Wade's protections in place, a woman's ability to access abortion is heavily dependent on where she lives.

He also criticised New York Governor Andrew Cuomo for "failing to advance legislation that would protect women's rights on the state level by empowering the right-leaning Independent Democratic Conference (IDC)". Kavanaugh, if confirmed, would replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who is retiring.

Roe v. Wade was first argued in December 1971, re-argued in October 1972, and decided on January 22, 1973, when it became the law of the land. The known states to have implemented such "trigger" laws are Louisiana, Mississippi, North Dakota, and South Dakota, with another dozen or so states having pre-Roe abortion bans still on the books ready to re-enact if it is federally overturned.

The prior positions on health care cases by Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's pick for the Supreme Court, hint at his potential future positions if confirmed to the court. Sarah Weddington was a 26-year-old attorney from Texas when she argued that case in front of the Supreme Court and won.

"I definately think that is a serious threat", Chappelle Golston said, "I mean, Trump pledged to nominate a nominee that would overturn - or be willing to overturn - Rose v Wade, so we think that is a total possibility".

At the same time, New Mexico is one of 10 states that makes abortion a crime under state law. It can then, with no Roe v. Wade president, order a national removal of the pancreas. Earlier this month, the Iowa Supreme Court struck down a law that required a woman to undergo a 72-hour waiting period before obtaining an abortion.

"The President believes that the proper consideration for a nominee to the Court is not about litmus tests", Pence said in response.

She said she plans to do a lot more research about nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, she said in an interview Tuesday.
