If Roe v Wade was overturned, 24 USA states would likely move to ban or severely limit abortion upon reconvening, at earliest within seven months of the supreme court's decision.

While Kennedy was a conservative, he proved to be a somewhat unpredictable "swing" vote over his long career.

Kennedy will retire on July 31, after more than 30 years on the court.

Trump responded to questions about potentional nominees, including federal judges Brett M Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett, as well as US Senator Mike Lee from Utah. Trump has narrowed his list of Supreme Court finalists to five candidates, including two women.

A new poll Friday found 67 percent of Americans are opposed to rolling back the landmark 1973 Supreme Court decision that guarantees a woman's right to an abortion.

Trump's nominee must win confirmation by the Senate. He called them all "outstanding", but did not say if they are on his short list. And the Trump White House, while disorganized in other areas, made its relationship with the religious right a priority.

When asked is issues affecting women are the "most important" for 2018 candidates to discuss, almost half (48 percent) said they are "very important but not the most important issue".

Kennedy's replacement could cast a deciding vote on limiting or ending the right to abortion. Collins wasted no time following Kennedy's announcement to reiterate that she believes Roe v. Wade is "settled law", but a spokeswoman told the Portland Press Herald that Collins "does not apply ideological litmus tests to nominees".

Twenty-four states have anti-abortion legislatures, making it likely they would move to enact abortion restrictions after a supreme court decision further restricted abortion.

There are ten Democratic senators up for re-election in 2018 in states that Trump won in 2016.

Each of the three has a complex, frenemy-style relationship with the president, and each is trying to find the right political balance of working with a president most of their constituents strongly support, and opposing him where it matters most to their own voters. "And because he's going to have the chance to appoint two Supreme Court justices". "He said he'd like the job", Trump said.

Carlos Barria / Reuters Trump's nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court spot stolen from Barack Obama by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell elated conservatives. Also attending were Republican Charles Grassley and Democrats Joe Manchin, Joe Donnelly and Heidi Heitkamp.

I don't know who this gentlemen is-he doesn't appear to be a member of the media-but his tweet was so downtrodden and hopeless, it earned a spot.
