With the recent controversy surrounding the 1973 Roe v. Wade case that legalized abortion nationally, it appears that the new administration's decisions regarding the medical process could potentially leave 22 states without legal means of performing such procedures on women.
"One of the reasons they opposed it, they said, 'Well, we have Roe v. Wade in law".
"I stand for the sanctity of life". "Judge Kavanaugh has dedicated his life to public service and is an excellent choice who will uphold the U.S. Constitution".
Kavanaugh has not expressed outright opposition to Roe v. Wade, but abortion rights activists are alarmed that it could be on the chopping block if he is confirmed. The co-director, Nick Loeb said, "It is being filmed at the right time for it to get attention, with the nation embroiled in a debate over Roe and the next Supreme Court justice", Christian Headlines reported.
Rep. Lois Frankel (D-FL) on Wednesday brought a coat hanger to a briefing to protest Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's latest Supreme Court pick who has ruled against abortion rights for women.

Instead, it would return the decision about abortion legality to the states, where a patchwork of laws are already in place that render abortion more or less available, largely depending on individual states' political leanings.
The first - and most likely type to result in the court taking a broad look at Roe v. Wade - are "gestational" bans that seek to restrict abortion at a certain point in pregnancy, said Lipton-Lubet. President Trump has said from the beginning that he wants to appoint a judge to the Supreme Court who is, in his words, pro-life. "I am pro-life in terms of legislation that passes through the House, but I do think the Supreme Court has settled that issue generationally".

Understandably, this has people anxious about one big question: if Roe v Wade is overturned what happens?
