Trump Interviews 4 Supreme Court Candidates

That possibility has left many looking to two pro-choice Republican senators, Sens.

"I would not support a nominee who would demonstrate hostility to Roe v. Wade", she said.

"It has been established as a constitutional right for 45 years and was reaffirmed 26 years ago", Collins told ABC. That means Democrats have a steep hill to climb if they intend to preserve the decisions on groundbreaking cases like Roe V. Wade and Obergefell v. Hodges. "And that would indicate to me a failure to respect precedent, a fundamental tenet of our judicial system", Collins continued.

"I'll be meeting with two or three more, and we'll make a decision on the United States Supreme Court - the new justice - that'll be made over the next few days and we'll be announcing it on Monday", he said. The Maine senator said she would only back a judge who would show respect for settled law such as the 45-year-old Roe decision, which has always been an anathema to conservatives.

Republican Sen. Susan Collins of ME, an abortion rights supporter, is considered one of the key votes on a nominee.

These anti-abortion groups may be pushing the administration for representation reasons, but other opponents are agreeing simply in hopes of getting a nominee more easily through the confirmation process. He said Friday that he was focusing on five to seven candidates whom he planned to interview this week. Susan Collins are moderate Republicans who support access to abortion services.

Rand Paul (R-Ky.) wants retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's replacement to oppose abortion.

As battle lines are drawn in the coming fight over Donald Trump's next supreme court nominee, a senator who could help to decide the nominee's fate warned on Sunday that a justice who would seek to reverse federal abortion rights protections "would not be acceptable".

So he already knows how anyone on the list will vote on abortion, meaning he doesn't have to ask their views on the issue. "I had a very long discussion with Justice Gorsuch at his office, and he pointed out that he is the author of a book on precedent".

"I'm going to pick someone who is outstanding", he said.

"They're going to get beaten so badly", Trump said. Even Leonard Leo of the conservative Federalist Society, who is advising Trump on his Court pick, has noted the importance of precedent.

"What's important in addition to increasing diversity is how that person would actually interpret law", Chu said. A pro-life woman on our nation's highest court will be a living rebuke to those who falsely equate abortion with women's empowerment. I have voted against judges and I have voted for them.

Trump said he was working from a list of 25 conservative nominees the White House released last November, and the Center has requested disclosures for all of them.
