Ilyse Hogue, president of the abortion advocacy group NARAL, said that this "personal liberty" standard was necessary and any of President Trump's list of Supreme court picks would "decimate our rights as enshrined under Roe".

Collins has said she'd oppose any nominee who was hostile to legal precedents.

The findings come as the battle over retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy's Supreme Court seat solidifies around the future of Roe v. Wade, the landmark ruling that legalized abortion. Collins would agree that those were very good reversals.

For abortion-rights activists, who rallied online support using the hashtag #CoatHangersForCollins, the hangers serve as a visceral symbol of the high stakes of the abortion debate. One of these will have to get to the Supreme Court to enable a majority to overturn Roe.

On CNN, the senator told host Jake Tapper, "I would not support a nominee who demonstrated hostility to Roe v. Wade". Instead, the supposed right to abortions sprang from the imaginations of liberal activists who invented nonexistent constitutional rights to advance their ideological agenda.

As of now, four states - Louisiana, Mississippi and North and South Dakota - have what are known as abortion "trigger laws". As long as these judicial nominees' skepticism about Roe v. Wade was not too overt, they were unlikely to encounter much opposition from the GOP's pro-choice wing - or even from pro-choice Democrats. The idea that it was Roe that produced legal abortion in the United States is a modern myth that no pro-life activist in 1973 believed.

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.

This request comes just over a year after Trump signed his " Buy American and Hire American " executive order. But the base salary for servers rose to $12.68 per hour this year from $11.88 per hour the year before.


For a decade, pro-life organizations focused most of their efforts on campaigning for an antiabortion constitutional amendment, but by the mid-1980s it became apparent that, even with a Republican Senate and a Republican president, there was no chance that they could get this amendment through Congress, let alone convince the requisite number of state legislatures to ratify it.

Most Republicans want to put the Supreme Court out of reach of the left for a generation or more.

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.

After an initial burst of enthusiasm about the court opening, Republican politicians have characterized any questions about Roe's fate as scaremongering by Democrats. Why do you think he picked Neil Gorsuch?
