Cuomo blasts Trump administration, Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh

"I am pleased with the President's nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court", Stefanik wrote on Twitter on Monday.

A press conference outside the federal building, and then a demonstration at the downtown building that houses offices for Alaska's two US senators, focused on the role of Sen.

"And the New York State law is in the criminal code", Cuomo said. "We need to act on it", said Missouri Rep. Mike Moon, who is hoping Trump's Supreme Court appointment breathes new life into an anti-abortion state constitutional amendment that stalled earlier this year.

The landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade is in the spotlight again with President Trump's nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to fill the vacancy created by Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement.

Here to talk more about the issue is Chelly Hegan of Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood. ".Now is the time for Americans to rise up, those Parkland students, the survivors and victims of gun violence across the country, women who believe that the government has no place in their doctors' examining rooms or their bedrooms, people who believe that our air and water ought to be clean, that consumers should be protected". Both have praised Kavanaugh since Trump's selection was made this week.

"One of the reasons they opposed it, they said, 'Well, we have Roe v. Wade in law". It's been decided by the Supreme Court.

"Even if the case to overthrow Roe isn't now in the court, you can be sure that there is a road map that's being planned by conservative groups", said Russell. By contrast, Kennedy is one of five Justices on the current Court to affirm support for the constitutional right to abortion. He has openly criticized Chief Justice John Roberts, who he says saved the Affordable Care Act. But she also said it is important to recognize the role played by a conservative Republican president.

"The en banc majority, by contrast, reflects a philosophy that unlawful immigrant minors have a right to immediate abortion on demand, not to be interfered with even by Government efforts to help minors navigate what is undeniably a hard situation by expeditiously transferring them to their sponsors", Kavanaugh wrote.

Cuomo accused the Republican senators of drinking "the Trump Kool-Aid". The minority leader's problem? While I have not met Judge Kavanaugh, I look forward to sitting down for a personal meeting with him. The Court famously upheld the federal Partial-Birth Abortion Ban in 2007. "There's thousands of nominees who can be offered who would be bipartisan nominees". I think there are cases pending in the lower courts right now that could make it up to the Supreme Court if not next term then the term after. "It's all about American people standing up strong", Gillibrand said.

"We're looking at a really deep push in states like Nevada and Colorado", said Hogue.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo called Kavanaugh an "extreme conservative with a clear partisan record".

The outspoken Democrat on Wednesday called on the Republican-controlled NY state Senate to pass legislation mirroring abortion rights outlined in Roe v. Wade, the Washington Examiner said.

As Democrats attempt to take control of the state Senate in this year's elections for the first time in almost a decade, the governor pledged to oust GOP incumbents and stumped in Westchester and Nassau counties on Tuesday.

All three Democrat contenders have vowed to use their power if elected to block any effort to impose any new restrictions approved by what, even after November, could still remain a Republican-controlled Legislature.

The pushback comes in response to attacks from his Democratic primary rival Cynthia Nixon who wants to turn it into an issue.
