NM Reproductive-Rights Advocates Oppose Supreme Court Nominee

In April, a Public Religion Research Institute survey found that 65 percent of 18- to 29-year-old Americans said they think that abortion should be legal in most or all cases, while 51 percent of Americans over the age of 65 said they agreed.

So where does Colorado stand?

Since 2011, states have enacted almost 1,200 separate abortion restrictions, according to Guttmacher, making these types of laws far more common.

"As Trump's extreme conservative Republican Party continues their attacks on women's rights, the need to protect a woman's right to choose is more important than ever", Cuomo said. States required that doctors at abortion clinics have admitting privileges at hospitals within a certain area.

Colorado's legislature has never adopted anti-abortion policy language, either.

But the concept of due process that the Court used in Lawrence, Casey, and yes, Roe v. Wade, would have been foreign to the men who drafted and ratified the Constitution and the post-Civil War amendments it invokes. Because while there's nothing on the books that could restrict abortion in Colorado, there's nothing protecting it, either. A honest commitment to upholding reproductive rights or enacting sane gun control - or protecting the environment, or upholding civil rights, or any number of other good causes - would require the same strategic approach to the judiciary as conservatives have shown, and the same willingness to subordinate short-term disagreements to long-term goals.

The governor signed an executive order on Monday to safeguard women's reproductive rights, including ordering insurers to cover the emergency contraceptive known as "Plan B". That is what reproductive rights are all about. I mean, what types of restrictions have states sought to put on abortion access?

He's going to try to use the lefty froth over Kavanaugh to get New York's law repealed now. What they didn't tell me was that the pain would last forever. "Holy cow does this illustrate how much elections matter".

In Planned Parenthood v. Casey, the court "said you can't create an undue burden with those regulations" placed by states on women seeking abortions, Shumaker said. "We absolutely saw women crossing state lines".

With more than 2,750 pregnancy help organizations located across the U.S., Godsey says the pregnancy help community is perfectly positioned to reach the many mothers who may still be considering abortion in the future. By contrast, Kennedy is one of five Justices on the current Court to affirm support for the constitutional right to abortion. Instead, it would return the decision about abortion legality to the states, where a patchwork of laws already in place render abortion more or less available, largely depending on individual states' political leanings.

Many analysts also agree that even with the Supreme Court's likely philosophical shift, Roe v. Wade might not actually be overturned at all. "So regardless of what happens, this is going to be a states fight". California also broadly interpreted a woman's "mental health" exception to allow many abortions, according to the National Right to Life Committee. "If you look at the narrative and the work that Americans United for Life (AUL) has been doing, this has been their strategy". If we wait until Roe is overturned, it will be too late.

"On the question of Roe v. Wade, if confirmed to the D.C. Circuit, I would follow Roe v. Wade faithfully and fully". The Assembly has passed legislation codifying Roe six consecutive times, but the Senate has repeatedly blocked it.
