High Stakes: Dems Work on Agenda to Block Trump Court Selection

Democrats on Capitol Hill are already working to block President Trump's potential nominee for the Supreme Court. And it's no surprise the battle lines are forming around an issue that's core to both sides—abortion.

Pro-lifers see an opportunity to overturn Roe v Wade, and abortion supporters are very worried that could happen, so both side are using the issue to fire up their bases.

For conservatives who had Supreme Court vacancies in mind when they voted for President Donald Trump, Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement is a dream come true.

"Kennedy's retirement is a momentous event for the pro-life movement," says Catherine Glenn Foster, president of Americans United for Life.

Pro-choice Democrats have already began speaking out about opposing a pro-life Trump nominee.

"This is a battle line that has been drawn that literally will put women's lives at risk, that under our minds our civil rights, our human rights," Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) said at a recent protest rally.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell vows to start the confirmation process as soon as the president announces his pick, to schedule a vote before the midterm elections this fall.
