Pence: 'I do' still want Roe v. Wade to be overturned

President Donald Trump tapped Kavanaugh, a judge on the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals, to take the vacancy being left by retiring Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy.

"In this critical moment in our nation's history, the stakes are too high; we need an experienced leader who will fight to protect New Yorkers from federal attacks on our rights and values - and that leader is Andrew Cuomo". The longtime women's rights advocate fears Kavanaugh will do Trump's bidding if he's confirmed.

Hatch also said Tuesday that Democrats' concern that Kavanaugh's appointment to the court would endanger abortion rights was overblown and labeled it "pathetic" as a rallying cry against him.

"These were the Republican senators just a couple of years ago, telling me it's unimaginable that anyone would try to overturn Roe v. Wade". They're already pointing to their worry about Roe v. Wade, about whether it will be overturned. "That would be binding precedent", he said at the time. "I find it hard to think that [Chief Justice] Roberts - who has a more long-term view of the arc of the court and a desire to preserve its institutional role - would facially overrule Roe". The group is specifically targeting vulnerable Senate Republicans including Sens.

Robin Chappelle Golston, the head of Planned Parenthood Empire State Acts - the lobbying arm of Planned Parenthood in NY state - said her group is grateful for Cuomo's efforts, and she puts the blame back on the Republicans. The organization recently paid for a six-figure TV ad placement, urging Murkowski to vote against "Trump's anti-choice picks" for the Supreme Court.

As for what he says about NY law being tougher on abortion than Roe, that's marginally true. She said the breakaway Democrats helped Republicans remain in control of the Senate for the past eight legislative sessions.

Pence's evasions appeared carefully crafted to avoid disrupting Kavanaugh's confirmation process, which will feature questions aimed at picking apart his stance on abortion rights and whether he might eventually overturn or gut Roe.

"Women's health issues deserve more than political stunts with stolen one-liners from 'The Apprentice, '" said Candice Giove, a spokesman for Senate Republicans, in a statement.

"In the face of this federal assault, NY is going to protect itself because this state has always been the progressive capital of the nation".
