Democratic Senators Issue Last-Minute Warnings About Trump's Supreme Court Pick

Texas voters are split on whether the U.S. Supreme Court should overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision creating a woman's right to an abortion in the U.S., a new survey finds. And about 49 percent said it was very important to get a justice who agreed with them on police powers.

On Monday, President Trump is expected to announce his nominee to replace Justice Anthony M. Kennedy on the Supreme Court.

That law was struck down by the Supreme Court, as she pointed out, by the vote of five justices in 2016 in the case of Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt. Instead, the supposed right to abortions sprang from the imaginations of liberal activists who invented nonexistent constitutional rights to advance their ideological agenda. "The Senate must only confirm a justice who firmly declares that the constitution protects individual liberty and the right of all people to make personal decisions about their bodies and relationships, including the right to have contraception, the right to an abortion, and to marry the person who you choose".

The poll surveyed 1,500 USA adults from July 1-3 through web-based interviews and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points. "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". The media might ignore our view, or try to portray us as opponents of women's rights, but hundreds of thousands of Americans have marched on Washington every year since Roe v. Wade was handed down, calling for an end to the abortion-on-demand industry in America.

So as our friends on the left yet again wade through the various stages of grief - they so wish a President Hillary Clinton would be appointing Supreme Court justices to their liking - I would tell them: bad Supreme Court decisions make for awful precedent.

After making it through the quarterfinals, the final four squads will have a couple of days to prepare for their next matches. Unfortunately for the Egyptian, a heartbreaking last six weeks for club and country have probably put an end to his chances.

As of now, four states - Louisiana, Mississippi and North and South Dakota - have what are known as abortion "trigger laws".

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. Those laws, passed long after Roe was handed down, would make abortion illegal if and when the Supreme Court were to say Roe is no more.

Democrats did not immediately begin to react against Republican judicial nominees, however.

Such a decision is increasing in likelihood in a world where the Supreme Court is made of a conservative majority. Leo singled out Barrett and Kavanaugh as having "a lot of name recognition among supporters of the president, and I think that ultimately when people like them are nominated you'll see a lot of folks line up". Republican Senator Susan Collins has stated publicly she will not support a Supreme Court Justice hostile to Roe v. Wade.
