    In all my years I never heard that. Thank you.

    I’ve argued for decades that medical science has advanced such that once the lungs form at 24-ish weeks the child can survive outside the womb with minimal to no developmental issues.

    The science around brain formation goes well before that. Once I saw a 20-week sonogram, my son completely formed, I knew the science should move the legality at least back to then & probably the 1st trimester.

      So with the pick of Barrett, the dems have to be careful about what subjects they bring up to attack her. She has 2 adopted haitian kids, one was from around the time of the big quake, the one where the Clinton's stole all the millions... and nothing was built for the people. With the Durham investigation having a Clinton Foundation special going on right now, I wouldn't doubt if that is something that is purposely brought up by the republicans during the hearing to put it in the spotlight to remind people of the corruption on that side and how the corrupt DOJ helped to cover up all the crimes related to the foundation.

            Unless they tie Amy to a homophobic position or find a legal problem with adoption, I don't see how they stop her. They could easily over reach and lose votes.

              They just confirmed her. She’s been vetted. She was raked across the coals already and was easily confirmed. Unless she’s tortured puppies or there is video of her with a donkey since then, she is an easy confirmation.

                The donkey part worries me. Has swonkey been out of Ohio lately?

                  Beat me to it. That would be the one thing egregious enough to stop her confirmation

                        "(E)xcept where necessary, in appropriate medical judgment, for the preservation of the life or health of the mother."

                        All it takes is an "appropriate" medical judgment that the mother's "health" would be jeopardized.

                        "They" can easily tie her to homophobic positions.
                        As far as I'm concerned the only question is whether she has lived up to her own words. If she has, confirm her.

                        I think the fact that she has a family and is successful tears them apart inside.

                        ACB was the perfect nominee at this time. She is the ultimate successful suburban educated married with children. The Dems attack her and it won't set well with this demographic that is said to be problematic for Trump.

                          Didn't the Senate already confirm her to another court position in a bi-partisan vote? If so, the DEMS don't have a leg to stand on.

                            Don't disagree. However, if they find her with a statement that they can label as "homophobic", they have a good chance, in today's climate, to defeat her regardless of her scruples in preventing her personal beliefs from affecting her decisions. That was all I said. Do you wish to contradict that?

                            3 years ago , so they should skip the dog and pony show and put her out for a vote.
