Donald Trump Promises To Appoint Anti-Abortion Justices To Supreme Court

Despite his wildly fluctuating stance on abortion rights over the years, presidential hopeful Donald Trump said on Tuesday that if elected, he would appoint Supreme Court justices who would likely overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that legalized abortion in America.

So today he's pandering to the anti-choice groups. I wonder what tomorrow will bring.

Regardless, he should not have an opportunity to appoint a judge - our CURRENT President is the one who should be "allowed" to do this. F#$ck Congress - total bullsh$t!

I'm waiting for the day those without a uterus, to stop make rules for them. I'm so sick of people making rules for women on what they can and can not do with them. FU!

This sends me into an irrational rage when people speak of this. Let Obama pick. Completely wrong it hasn't been done yet.

Even if Congress does stop obstructing the process, the next president may have to choose at least 1- RBG is 83, Kennedy is nearly 80 and Breyer is 77. I wish them all continued good health but we saw with Scalia that you just never know.

Re: Donald Trump Promises To Appoint Anti-Abortion Justices To Supreme Court

This may be the deciding factor in me not voting for him. I'm a Republican but I'm Pro Choice and I feel VERY strongly about it. In the past, I have not felt that many Republican candidates were enough of a threat on this issue to not vote for them - they had other issues that they were focusing on than to make it a point to overturn Roe Vs. Wade. But if he is going to threaten to make it his mission to do this, I will NOT vote for him. Regardless of how much I may dislike the Democratic candidate.

God, I REALLY wish Kasich had gotten the nomination. Chat Icon

Re: Donald Trump Promises To Appoint Anti-Abortion Justices To Supreme Court

I try very hard not to judge people on who they support (I really do **try**) but honestly cannot understand how people who support Trump still can say it's because "he tells it like it is" or he cares about this country or the people here and he wants to change the "establishment." He has shown time and time again he cares ONLY for DONALD TRUMP!! He has no interest in making America Great - he wants to be able to say "See, I can even be president. I am rich and powerful and I can get anything I want!"
He is a loathsome, lying, misogynistic, bigoted, narcissistic who will literally say ANYTHING to get people to vote for him. There is no principle behind any of his words. Part of me is worried that if he wins, he would appoint anti-choice judges. But truthfully, no one really knows what he would do.

I generally thought he seemed the least crazy of the bunch and the most realistic, but from everything I've read, he is very anti-choice so that was a big turn off. Not that it matters because he was completely ignored anyway. It really feels like our country is now a reality TV show - only crazy gets any real air time. Sad state of affairs.

We really don't know what he'll do. He flip flops more than a gymnast. Now the Muslim ban was 'just a suggestion.' And I really hope people do not vote for him solely based on his promise to build a wall at the border, because let's face it- that's not happening either. I am sure pretty soon he will soften his stance, pointing out the expense of improving the roads to the border, which are not in great shape, of building the wall itself, and maintaining it. He'll also realize the expense and impact of deporting 11 million people, and change his stance on that too.

Yes, I believe he was anti-choice. But like I previously mentioned, I don't believe he was focused on that particular issue. Many republican candidates are anti-abortion but it's a topic that I've never really felt that they would go out of their way to try to overturn once in office. They had other, more important topics to focus their attention on. So while Kasich may have been anti-abortion, I would have gladly voted for him because I don't believe abortion would have been a focus for him in the white house. Trump scares me because it seems like he's making it a point to make this his mission. I truly hope that's not the case because our country would be taking a GIANT step backwards in regards to women's rights.

While I definitely agree that every politician has their own specific agenda, a lot of the effect a president can have on our country is based on opportunity.

Had Kasich become our next president, he would had the opportunity to nominate multiple Supreme Court justices. Even if he didn't have a significant anti choice agenda - which I'm not necessarily sure was the case but putting that aside - he still would have had to choose nominees knowing their position on the right to choose, and I'm sure he'd pick judges whose beliefs align with his own.

A decision is expected next month in Whole Women's Health v. Cole, the case about the bullshiit abortion laws in Texas. I'm watching that one for sure.
