How Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation could affect Roe v. Wade

Ramesh Ponnuru U.S. politics could be upended after Roe v. Wade

Ever since Kavanaugh was tagged by President Trump, Congressional Democrats have promised staunch opposition to Kavanugh's confirmation - arguing that the nominee would rollback abortion rights along with many other progressive Supreme Court rulings.

Meanwhile, pro-life groups like Alaska Right to Life say they're cautious about the nominee.

When Bash asked Pence if he would still like to see Roe overturned, the devout anti-abortion advocate responded carefully: "Well, I do, but I haven't been nominated to the Supreme Court". "I'm proud to be part of a pro-life administration that's advanced pro-life policies".

Once again Pence owned his pro-life convictions, while insisting that the president had not discussed Roe with Judge Kavanaugh. "I didn't discuss it with him, either". So, let's take a moment to correct the public record: Overturning Roe v. Wade will not criminalize abortion.

Greece To Expel, Ban Russian Diplomats
That is because Athens has always been upset FYR Macedonia is too similar to a region in northern Greece called Macedonia. A spokesperson for the Greek government said that Greece "will not tolerate anything that violates global law".

Even so, Trump and those advising him throughout the process of choosing a Supreme Court nominee have maintained that the president has refrained from raising the issue with any of his potential court picks. "Frankly, we've seen enough of litmus tests over the decades", Pence replied. "But what I can assure you is that what the president was looking for here was a nominee who will respect the Constitution as written, who will faithfully uphold the Constitution and all of his interpretations of the law". "They don't want the court to have any repute placed upon it by the American people, that would be the result, and they know that, so they are going to play things close to the vest, they are not going to overrule these iconic decisions".

In a separate interview with Fox News' Brett Baier Tuesday, Pence was shown video of Sen. "Alaska Right to Life wants to make sure and urge both Senators Murkowski and Sullivan to confirm a justice that recognizes the personhood of the child in the womb".

Pence was similarly evasive in response, saying Trump picked Kavanaugh for his "background", "temperament" and "experience".

"The President wanted to put someone on the bench who would not legislate from the bench, who would not, as has been too much of the case in the last generation or more, where we've had members of our federal judiciary who literally have been making policy and making law from the bench", he added.
