Nearly a year after the fateful vote on the republican healthcare bill, Alaska's senior senator Lisa Murkowski is once again in the spotlight following President Donald Trump's nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court. In some states, abortion would still be on-demand and paid for by the government. "We want people to go that respect the Constitution, respect the Constitution as written, will not legislate from the bench, and President Trump and I are absolutely convinced that Judge Kavanaugh is exactly the kind of jurist that the American people - in the majority - want to see on the Court". "God forbid they do what they intend to do, which is overturn Roe v. Wade", Cuomo said. "And there's no way anybody would ever think of overturning Roe v. Wade,'" Cuomo said.
"In the face of this federal assault, NY is going to protect itself because this state has always been the progressive capital of the nation. 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".

"I think his confirmation will go well", Hatch said during brief remarks to reporters before meeting more privately with Kavanaugh. "But, with the ability of the court to sort of move at the margins and let a regulation stand here and let another regulation stand there, when you add it all up it restricts access".
Murkowski said she will consider the role that Kavanaugh would play in swinging the court to the right for decades to come.
