Wade is Safe No Matter Who Donald Trump Picks for Supreme Court

Sen. Susan Collins Won't Support A Supreme Court Nominee Who Opposes Roe

She went on, saying, "A candidate for this important position who would overturn Roe v. Wade would not be acceptable to me because that would indicate an activist agenda that I don't want to see a judge have, and that would indicate to me a failure to respect precedent, a fundamental tenant of our judicial system".

The president spent the weekend at his Bedminster golf club, consulting with advisers, including White House counsel Don McGahn, as he considers his options to fill the vacancy with a justice who has the potential to be part of precedent-shattering court decisions on abortion, health care, gay marriage and other issues.

"That will happen, and that'll happen automatically, in my opinion, because I am putting pro-life [anti-abortion] justices on the court", Trump said at a presidential debate against Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

Trump is set to announce his nomination next Monday.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer declared Monday that abortion rights are hanging in the balance.

What should President Trump look for in a Supreme Court nominee?

Judge Andrew Napolitano, Fox News senior judicial analyst, who has often challenged some of the president's wilder claims and those made by his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, explained that Chief Justice John Roberts and his views on what kind of role the nation's highest court should play would likely keep the landmark decision on abortion intact.

The incident started when a player for the Philippines decked an Australian with almost four minutes left in the third quarter. Chief Executive of Basketball Australia Anthony Moore duly issued an apology for his team's part in the fracas.

The White House also announced Monday that the overall confirmation process would be led by White House counsel Donald McGahn, as it was during the process that led to the successful confirmation a year ago of Justice Neil Gorsuch.

Casey told WKBN that he hopes Trump chooses a "mainstream nominee". That judicial approach typically involves a more literal interpretation of the Constitution, and not reading into the Constitution language that doesn't explicitly appear.

Though Kennedy was nominated to the Supreme Court by President Ronald Reagan, a conservative, he was considered a swing vote.

Kavanaugh is a judge on the District of Columbia U.S. Court of Appeals.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said on NBC's Meet The Press that he's "pro-life" but that "one of the concepts that really means a lot in America is stare decisis. You're voting on whether that nominee is going to change precedent", said Cantwell.

The Senate would have to confirm the nominee. Nevertheless, Murkowski did vote for Justice Gorsuch past year. Vice President Mike Pence can be called on to break a tie.

Collins and even several Democrats agreed to back Gorsuch because they said he clearly valued legal precedent and the independence of USA courts.
