Planned Parenthood Demands Special ‘Personal Liberty Standard’ for Trump Supreme Court Nominee

Stacey Dash anti-abortion movie loses cast, crew and funding UPenn Professor: Women Could Go to Jail for Miscarriages if ‘Roe’ Overturned

Dorothy Roberts, a University of Pennsylvania professor of law and sociology, said Wednesday that a conservative Supreme Court could overturn Roe v. Wade and ultimately criminalize miscarriages.

"There have been a lot of times where there's been a lot of panic about Roe v. Wade being overturned, and there's been a lot of hyperventilating about that, but this time really feels like it's not a drill, this time feels serious", said Janet Harris, 51, who sent a package of 10 wire hangers from her home in OR to Collins' office.

Opponents of overturning the landmark Supreme Court decision argue that to overturn Roe v. Wade would cause women to seek out abortions by illegitimate means, resulting in a higher mortality rate among pregnant women not wanting to carry their pregnancy to full term. Collins would agree that those were very good reversals. It is resurrected now because Trump's choice to replace Kennedy could conceivably tilt the court dramatically to the right, and progressives are making the prospect of overturning Roe v. Wade their rallying cry to oppose Trump's pick. Elective abortion through the second trimester was legal in four states, and abortion in cases of rape or medical necessity was legal in thirteen others. Kennedy had effectively preserved Roe by joining the majority in 1992's Planned Parenthood v. Casey; every judge on the Trump shortlist is seen as a likely vote against abortion rights.

For most activists in the pro-life movement, a mere reversal of Roe was not what they wanted anyway, because they knew that reversing Roe would not end legalized abortion in the United States.

Another dozen or so states still have pre-Roe abortion bans on the books.

At the same time, Myrick says, "there are 20 states where abortion would probably remain safe and legal".




On a broader level, many on the left are finally realizing that the Supreme Court - one of their favorite tools to force their political beliefs on the rest of the country - could be out of their control for decades after the appointment of a new conservative justice.

Cuomo also backs a measure, known as the Reproductive Health Act, or RHA, which would codify the rights in the Roe v. Wade case into NY law.

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

The film promises to offer a far different spin on the Supreme Court ruling than the one that has served as "official history" for the past 45 years.

Thanks to the decision by retired Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., to allow lower court judges and executive branch employees to win Senate confirmation by a simple majority - rather than a two-thirds majority - the next Supreme Court nominee will need only 51 Senate votes to be confirmed, rather than a two-thirds majority of 67 in the 100-member Senate. Why do you think he picked Neil Gorsuch?
