What Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh means for Roe v. Wade

Abortion could be banned in 22 states in the next two years as the Supreme Court shifts further right under newly nominated justice Brett Kavanaugh.

On Monday evening, President Donald Trump nominated the judge, who formerly served as staff secretary to President George W. Bush, to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, widely regarded as a swing voter between liberal and conservative causes. The appointment would create a five-judge majority of conservatives for the Supreme Court and clearing a path to overturn Roe v. Wade, case that made abortion legal federally in 1973.

Kavanaugh has only ruled on one case regarding abortion during the 12 years he has served on the U.S.
