Of the 18 justices confirmed since 1969, 14 have come from Republican presidents, and only four from Democrats. A few GOP appointees, notably Harry Blackmun and David Souter, in time voted consistently with the liberal wing. But conservatives have dominated. (Senate Republicans in 2016 prevented a vote on Democrat Barack Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland.)

If they repeal Roe verses Wade, that would make the judges in error when they ok'd it, or would deny it. They were right the first time.
-------------------------------------------------

The reality is that in 1973, Roe vs. Wade was decided by a Court that was comprised of a majority of justices who were nominated by Republican presidents. The vote on Roe vs. Wade was 7-2.Nov 6, 2016
Roe v. Wade Was Decided By A Republican-Nominated Supreme Court

and its been republican nominated ever since.

That is why ALL future Republican nominees need to give up a minimum of three family members to be held hostage against the Justice’s inability to vote properly on the court.

That’s one reason 2000 was so important they stole the election. Who decided Florida? That’s right. The Supreme Court and Jeb bush cronies.

Because they understand it’s a necessary evil. But each of the judges appointed have been heritage foundation members. They pledge to overturn roe one day if they can. They just know better.

Republicans have made it harder to abort on a state level. Probably the smartest way to lower the number of abortions since they know they can never ban the practice. Suddenly women would be voting democratic.

But i too ask this question. If abortion is murder why do all the conservative judges allow it to continue? And why didn’t trump make this his first priority when he had majorities in both house and senate. It would have been the perfect time. But nope

No just the governor of Florida. Interesting fact. The woman in charge, not Catherine Harris, the other one. She was a Republican. But before 2000 she changed to democrat and jeb put her in charge of the election. Shady af

Jeb Bush was gov of Forida in 2000, that why Bush Jr. won with under 600 votes.

This illustrates how rightwing ideologues began to take over the process of appointing justices to the Supreme Court.

By GWB that process was complete.

This is why Republicans seek to enact laws undermining the right to vote, suppress votes, and disenfranchising those whom Republicans perceive to be likely Democratic voters.

Because Roe V Wade is constitutional, and saying it is not would be a total disregard of our rights.

Please show us where in the Constitution there is a written "right to privacy" or anything that gives the Federal Government the right to regulate ANY medical procedure? The Tenth Amendment bans the Federal Government from doing anything not SPECIFUCALLY allowed by the Constitution.

I'll refer you to the Supreme Court for that answer, since they are the ones tasked with interpreting the constitution. Seems my opinion and even yours don't count in comparison to that constitutionally created body.

republicans and democrats are political parties,,
SCOTUS is constitutional based not party based,,

so to have a liberal view is in violation of the constitution where constitutional conservative view is what a judge is supposed to have,,

Recently I’ve heard republicans support two things. Only property owners should be allowed to vote and you should have to pass a test. they know millions less would vote if they could do these things.
