Cuomo Says He'll Sue Supreme Court if Roe v. Wade Overturned

Howard TerryJul 12, 2018

Nearly a year after the fateful vote on the republican healthcare bill, Alaska's senior senator Lisa Murkowski is once again in the spotlight following President Donald Trump's nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court.

During a speech in Poughkeepsie, New York to promote a pro-choice agenda, Cuomo echoed other Democrats' assertions that the Supreme Court could reverse the landmark 1973 decision that legalized abortion nationwide.

During the 2016 campaign, Trump pledged to consider only Supreme Court nominees who were against abortion rights, while Pence has said that he longs for the day when Roe v. Wade "is sent to the ash heap of history".

"Roe v. Wade will be here forever", said Fitzpatrick.

In addition, Kavanaugh's handed down a concurring opinion in the 2015 case Priests for Life v. HHS, in which the Appeals Court for District of Columbia circuit upheld accommodations for faith-based nonprofits to be exempt from the Affordable Care Act's requirement that employers include contraception in the insurance plans they offer to employees.

Asked by CNN's Dana Bash whether he wants to see Roe v. Wade overturned, Pence replied, "I do, but I haven't been nominated for the Supreme Court". "Congressional Democrats are not pointing out the fact that even if Roe vs. Wade was overturned, it would not automatically ban abortions across the country, although that's the way they're framing it".

"I do not think it particularly likely that Roe (and Casey) are likely to be overturned based on this one appointment", Glenn Cohen, a professor at Harvard Law School and constitutional expert told Business Insider in June. The group is specifically targeting vulnerable Senate Republicans including Sens.

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.

"We do not have a NY state law that provides the protections of Roe v. Wade".

"He has prioritized keeping the IDC and the Republicans in control", Nixon said.

"Look, I think there's always more everyone can do, but he's definitely been a champion and spoken up for our issues", Chappelle Golston said. "They have had every opportunity to pass progressive legislation that ensure women have access to safe and legal abortion, but lacked the moral courage to advance what's right, putting their own personal political gain ahead of those they represent".
