Senate Passes Abortion Rights Bill; Legislation Now Heads To House

Stacey Dash anti-abortion movie loses cast, crew and funding

How did this happen?

"Nobody really knows" how the next justice will vote, Leo said. These Supreme Court decisions changed the game for women. The constitutional framework of Roe is about far more than abortion. Concerns about whether the Supreme Court will reverse Roe now dominate the conversation surrounding every Supreme Court nomination and presidential election, and they have polarized the nation.

"By demanding that all nominees affirm the personal liberty standard, the next Supreme Court justice will ensure that the right to safe, legal abortion is protected", the liberal groups state.

An actor best known for his role in Den of Thieves is filming a pro-life movie about the controversial Roe v. Wade decision, but he's not getting a ton of help from his Hollywood friends. One of these will have to get to the Supreme Court to enable a majority to overturn Roe.

Another dozen or so states still have pre-Roe abortion bans on the books. Abortion has been legal in NY since 1970, but advocates for the Reproductive Health Act say the law is limited and outdated and needs to be modernized.

Divers Hope To Rescue Remaining Boys Trapped In Thai Cave
When asked about his first reaction as he saw the first set of boys who were rescued he admitted that he was "very scared". The Seals said they are still waiting for a medic and three navy Seals who stayed with the boys to emerge from the cave.

Fifty-four and 53 percent of respondents to this week's Economist/YouGov poll said it was very important that the next Supreme Court justice share their views on immigration and voting rights, versus 47 percent who said the same about abortion rights.

Sen. Harriette Chandler, president of the Massachusetts Senate.

MSNBC host Ali Velshi asked Roberts about a tweet she wrote saying women would be under fire from all these different directions if the Supreme Court overturned Roe.

This Court-centered strategy suited the goals of conservative Republicans in the Reagan administration a lot more than a constitutional amendment did.

One pending case, for instance, involves an Arkansas law that would effectively ban medication abortions. "I am pro-life, and I will be appointing pro-life judges..."

Trump unleashes trade war with tariffs on China
There was no evidence of last-minute negotiations between USA and Chinese officials, business sources in Washington and Beijing said.

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.

All this means the outcome of a confirmation vote is uncertain.

A recent court case in OH offers a hint of how a post-Roe world would work. The majority opinion in Roe is notably free of the triumphalism that has accompanied declarations of other rights. "When he was first nominated for the appeals court, Democrats fought him back because they believed him to be too partisan".

After an initial burst of enthusiasm about the court opening, Republican politicians have characterized any questions about Roe's fate as scaremongering by Democrats. Under this arrangement, the Senate voted by 97-0 to confirm Kennedy's judicial nomination. When the Court took up a major abortion case, Planned Parenthood v. Casey, in 1992, pro-life activists expected the Court, with Kennedy's support, to overturn Roe. During the campaign, Trump promised to pick anti-abortion judges who would vote to overturn or limit Roe v. Wade. He rewarded them with the appointment of conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. And pro-choice advocates who are anxious that Roe hangs in the balance with the appointment of Justice Kennedy's replacement need to remember that conservatives have had a poor track record of predicting how justices will vote once they arrive on the bench.
