Senator Sent Coat Hangers by Abortion Rights Activists

A variety of outlets have commented on Judge Amy Barrett's religious beliefs ahead of the president's selection.

The New York Times article dating back to 1977 reports that "advocates of Federal funding of abortions delivered about 200 metal coat hangers" in person to Rep. Daniel J. Flood, asking him to change his position on depriving women of the right to a Medicaid-funded abortion.

At least one Republican, Susan Collins, has said that she would not vote for a nominee who supports the overturning of Roe v. Wade, a ruling that struck down laws restricting abortions. Susan Collins of ME said she was not comfortable with everyone he has considered.

One of the names on Donald Trump's Supreme Court shortlist is a 46-year-old appellate court judge, former law professor and mother of seven. Nii Ashie Kotey (former Dean, Faculty of Law, University of Ghana, Legon) and Nene A.O. Amegatcher (private legal practitioner and former President of the Ghana Bar Association).

According to the NBC poll, roughly 62 percent of Americans want to see the president's nominee either confirmed or rejected before midterms. Collins voted in favor of Gorsuch, a conservative, because he is a believer in relying on precedent and authored a book on the subject.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer tweeted that she could be an "activist judge" who would ignore court precedent and jeopardise abortion rights and government healthcare programmes.

Dissenting from that decision, Kavanaugh warned that the court was embracing "a new right for unlawful immigrant minors in USA government detention to obtain immediate abortion on demand". Though the court said park rangers had violated his free speech rights, the case was not about the right to abortion itself. For years, the organization has been at the forefront in challenging the mandate's legality. Anti-abortion conservatives, mostly Republicans, have long opposed the ruling. In another Sunday morning interview, Collins said she would not support a Trump nominee who she believed would support overturning Roe v. Wade. Also included on the short list is reportedly Senator Lee's brother, Utah Supreme Court Justice Thomas Lee.

President Trump has begun interviewing possible nominees for the Supreme Court seat that will become open when Justice Anthony Kennedy retires at the end of the month. But he promised that "they are outstanding people".

For his part, Trump has sought advice from White House counsel Don McGahn, outside advisers like Leonard Leo, on leave from the Federalist Society, and has been making calls to lawmakers, including Paul.
