Why Trump Will Appoint a Woman to the Supreme Court

Abortion rights emerged as a major topic of discussion on Sunday among US senators who will vote on President Donald Trump's eventual Supreme Court nominee to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who is retiring at the end of the month.

"I would not support a nominee who would demonstrate hostility to Roe v. Wade", she said.

In a fast-acting move meant to position the GOP for the midterm elections, President Donald Trump announced that he will unveil his new Supreme Court justice pick on July 9 - less than two weeks after Justice Anthony Kennedy unveiled his plans to retire.

With Trump committed to picking from a list of 25 potential nominees that he compiled with guidance from conservatives, Schumer said any of them would be "virtually certain" to favor overturning Roe v. Wade, the 1973 case that affirmed women's right to abortion. "For anybody who believes that the Constitution protects things like reproduction and LGBT rights this is bad - and we know it's bad because Donald Trump Jr.is happy", Oliver said, referencing Trump Jr.'s celebratory tweet on Kennedy's retirement.

Collins explained her reasons why on Sunday during an interview on ABC's "This Week".

"I actually don't", Collins said when asked whether she believed Gorsuch would vote against Roe v. Wade. So a nominee's position on whether or not they respect precedent will tell me a lot about whether or not they would overturn Roe v. Wade.

"But", he told Maria Bartiromo, "I'm putting conservative people on".

Speaking Monday at an Anchorage news conference, Murkowski noted Kennedy's pivotal role on the court.

Nearly every Republican in the Senate, which will confirm the successful nominee, is expected to vote with Trump as a matter of course.

In the third presidential debate in October of 2016, Trump was asked by moderator Chris Wallace if he wanted to see the Supreme Court overturn Roe. "Is it fair to say that the president won't pick someone who has a record of opposition to Roe v. Wade?".

"The Senate will vote to confirm Justice Kennedy's successor this fall", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said. Even though McConnell changed Senate rules a year ago to allow confirmation by simple majority, if Democrats hold together, he can not afford defections.

Casey's own stand on the abortion issue has become a hot topic in his reelection campaign, with Republican challenger Rep. Lou Barletta accusing him of being a starkly different lawmaker than his notably pro-life Democrat father, Gov. Robert Casey Sr., and calling the impending Supreme Court vote important to Casey's political future.

"No, I don't think it's fair to say that, and here's why".
