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

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

That was a reference to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who said during her 1993 hearing that it would be "wrong for me to say or preview in this legislative chamber how I would cast my vote".

The landmark case Roe v. Wade decriminalized abortion and protects a woman's right to choose. Collins would agree that those were very good reversals.

The poll also found 52 percent of respondents did not want to see Roe v. Wade overturned, versus 26 percent who did. "There are always issues [that the] executive branch and president deal with on a regular basis that are extraordinarily important and controversial, and we don't hold up Supreme Court nominations or confirmations for those". Because Roe had not been decided by a close vote (the vote was actually 7-2), and because it had bipartisan support, with both liberal and conservative justices on the Court voting with the majority and with key leaders in both political parties endorsing the decision, no one at the time, whether inside or outside of the pro-life movement, thought an imminent reversal of the decision was likely.

"Mark my words, they are moving to roll back Roe v. Wade, that is going to be the next move by this president", Cuomo said.

But those with absolutist views are in the minority: Just 25 percent said abortion should be legal in all cases and 16 percent said it should be illegal in all cases.

The Constitution says absolutely nothing about abortion - and the framers never even considered making it a constitutional right to abort unborn babies at almost any point in a pregnancy. If upheld, these laws could effectively overturn abortion rights in many states or across the nation as a whole.

Without Roe, he said, the people of every state could decide how tolerant or not they want to be when it comes to abortion. Abortion has been legal in NY since 1970, but advocates for the Reproductive Health Act say the law is limited and outdated and needs to be modernized.

MA has had a law on the books since the 19th century that criminalizes abortion - even though it's basically unenforceable because of Roe v. Wade.

On Friday, at a rally in Wisconsin where she was joined by House Speaker Paul Ryan, Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Leah Vukmir said Sen.

Most Republicans want to put the Supreme Court out of reach of the left for a generation or more. Justice Antonin Scalia was confirmed by a vote of 98-0 in 1986.

In the mid-1980s, few outside of pro-life or pro-choice activist circles were aware of the pro-lifers' strategy or thought that Reagan's early judicial nominees endangered abortion rights - which is why several of his Supreme Court nominations received unanimous support in the Senate. He rewarded them with the appointment of conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.
