"President Trump has put reproductive rights and freedoms and health care protections for millions of Americans on the judicial chopping block", Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer saidin a statement moments after Trump's announcement.
If confirmed by the Senate, Kavanaugh would fill the seat of retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, a swing vote who sometimes sided with the court's liberals in key cases. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who is up for re-election in November in a state where Trump is overwhelmingly popular, tweeted Monday that he too was looking forward to meeting with Kavanaugh to discuss his "judicial philosophy & perspective on access to healthcare for WVians with pre-existing conditions".

"Rehnquist's dissenting opinion [in Roe...] stated that under the Court's precedents, any such unenumerated right had to be rooted in the traditions and conscience of our people", Kavanaugh summarized. Robin Shea, a partner at the employment law firm Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete, said she's been "pretty pleased" overall with Kavanaugh's record.

In the federal courthouse in Washington, Kavanaugh has developed a reputation for cracking jokes, talking sports and showing up at events to support his colleagues. "I am going to do my due diligence, exercise an independent review and independent judgment so don't have a feeling one way or another", said the Alabama Democrat.
