Sarah Huckabee Sanders Stonewalls On Abortion Questions For SCOTUS Nominee

As the president weighs his choice, moderate Republican Sen.

"I would not support a nominee who demonstrated hostility to Roe v. Wade, because that would mean to me that their judicial philosophy does not include a respect for established decisions".

Collins spoke on ABC and CNN. "It has been described as a constitutional right for 45 years and was reaffirmed 26 years ago". "If chosen as the nominee, she will be the deciding vote to overturn Roe v. Wade and to strike down preexisting conditions protections in the ACA". "It's clearly precedent, and I always look for judges who respect precedent".

I'm holding applause for Collins.

President Donald Trump says he met with four potential Supreme Court Justice candidates on Monday morning as he works to fill the spot vacated by retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy.

"I want to be clear that a vote for any of the proposed nominees on Trump's list is a vote to overturn Roe v. Wade", said Ezra Levin, co-founder of the protest group Indivisible.

Indeed, a new poll released Monday found such widespread support for Roe v. Wade.

Over the weekend, President Trump told Fox News he would "probably not" ask his nominee about how they would vote on the abortion law.

Trump's nominee must win Senate confirmation.

The Cut reported Monday that advocates are sending Collins wire coat hangers as a graphic reminder of some of the steps historically taken when access to abortion has been restricted.

If Collins and Murkowski vote "no" and Democrats all vote "no", the nomination would be blocked.

Since each Supreme Court justice needs 51 votes to be confirmed, Democrats would only need one Republican to side against the nominee, assuming no Democrats break rank.

She reiterated that Trump does not intend to ask any of the candidates for their views on Roe v. Wade, the 1973 case that affirmed women's right to abortion. "I had a very long discussion with Justice Gorsuch at his office, and he pointed out that he is the author of a book on precedent".

"They're going to get beaten so badly", Trump said. She would be a key vote on Trump's pick for the Supreme Court in the closely divided Senate. "And that'll happen automatically, in my opinion, because I am putting pro-life justices on the court". In an op-ed in The New York Times, Schumer said "the next nominee will obfuscate and hide behind the shopworn judicial dodge, 'I will follow settled law'".

When asked on "State of the Union" whether she thought Justice Gorsuch would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, Collins said no, adding that she believes Gorsuch, the co-author of a book on precedent, understands that precedent is essential to the USA judicial system.
