Stacey Dash anti-abortion movie loses cast, crew and funding UPenn Professor: Women Could Go to Jail for Miscarriages if ‘Roe’ Overturned

Loeb's intentions to make a more pro-life leaning film of the U.S. Supreme Court's 1973 decision to grant a woman the right to an abortion has complicated production after several members of the Roe v. Wade cast and crew backed out of the project, according to a new report from The Hollywood Reporter. Instead, what all pro-life organizations wanted in the 1970s was a constitutional amendment that protected human life from the moment of conception and banned abortion nationwide. Jefferson was serving as president of National Right to Life when the High Court opened the door to almost unlimited abortion through its Roe v. Wade decision.

Arguing that President Donald Trump's pick to succeed Justice Anthony Kennedy would usher in a conservative majority, Roberts said that outcome could lead to prosecutors going after women who suffer miscarriages.

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. Kennedy had effectively preserved Roe by joining the majority in 1992's Planned Parenthood v. Casey; every judge on the Trump shortlist is seen as a likely vote against abortion rights. He likewise showed some sympathy to voting rights advocates' arguments against partisan gerrymandering and was expected to be a key to outlawing the practice when it next came before the court. We are calling for a "personal liberty standard", that the Senate must only confirm a justice who affirmatively declares that they believe the Constitution protects individual liberty and the right of all people to make personal decisions about their bodies and their personal relationships, including the right to use contraception, the right to have an abortion, and the freedom to marry who you choose.

The poll surveyed 1,500 US adults from July 1-3 through web-based interviews and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Even now, with Roe v. Wade's protections in place, a woman's access to abortion is heavily dependent on where she lives. Tearing out weeds in the garden of Supreme Court decisions is not judicial activism, because it is not judicial activism to uphold constitutionalism. Collins is a moderate Republican being watched closely for her vote on the president's Supreme Court nomination.

After an initial burst of enthusiasm about the court opening, Republican politicians have characterized any questions about Roe's fate as scaremongering by Democrats.

As of now, four states - Louisiana, Mississippi and North and South Dakota - have what are known as abortion "trigger laws". Democrats need to maintain their votes, plus one Republican to vote against the nominee to halt confirmation.

"'Roe v. Wade" is dead", Toobin said during a CNN panel discussion of Kavanaugh's appointment.

President Trump's top outside adviser on his Supreme Court nomination said he's "very confident" Republicans can "get anybody confirmed", but a leading Democratic senator suggested that the president is making himself "a puppet" by selecting a Supreme Court nominee from a list compiled by conservative groups. Why do you think he picked Neil Gorsuch?
