Lisa Murkowski is ‘annoyed’ with prejudging of Trump’s Supreme Court pick

President Donald Trump's upcoming nomination of a new U.S. Supreme Court justice has everyone talking about the possibility of Roe v. Wade being overturned.

But will the fate of Roe v. Wade really be sealed the moment President Trump nominates the replacement for Justice Kennedy? "That's why we desperately need a NY state law that codifies the Roe v. Wade rights in this state and takes it out of the criminal code".

But the bigger unknown is now centered around Kavanaugh's so far undisclosed position on abortion rights and the landmark Supreme Court decision in Roe vs. Wade.

In addition, Kavanaugh's handed down a concurring opinion in the 2015 case Priests for Life v. HHS, in which the Appeals Court for District of Columbia circuit upheld accommodations for faith-based nonprofits to be exempt from the Affordable Care Act's requirement that employers include contraception in the insurance plans they offer to employees. "That would be binding precedent", he said at the time. "I am pro-life in terms of legislation that passes through the House, but I do think the Supreme Court has settled that issue generationally".

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.

"I think you're going to find that not only is this a fine, great man, and a good family man and a very intelligent judge, but he can do a very good job on the court, and that's all we can ask for", Hatch said.

"One of the reasons they opposed it, they said, 'Well, we have Roe v. Wade in law". Republicans hold a 51-vote majority, and Sen.

New York's junior senator called on the American public to lobby their senators, which she said could help to torpedo his nomination despite Republicans controlling the Senate. If not for that alliance, Nixon said, Democrats could have been in power and the measure already would have become law. "New Yorkers deserve better", the actress says in the video.

The governor signed an executive order on Monday to safeguard women's reproductive rights, including ordering insurers to cover the emergency contraceptive known as "Plan B".

"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.
