With the news that President Donald Trump has interviewed four anti-choice judges as potential nominees to succeed Justice Anthony Kennedy on the U.S. Supreme Court, women's rights advocates are turning their attention to Sen.
Multiple polls have found that most Americans do not believe Roe vs. Wade should be overturned, unlike Trump's nominees. "They are really incredible people in so many different ways, academically and every other way", Mr. Trump said. She sounds like a very interesting woman.

Lee's communications director confirmed the report on Twitter.
The White House Counsel's Office, headed by Don McGahn, will supervise the process. Most prominent in people's minds is the decision in Roe v Wade, which ruled that state laws against abortion violated a constitutional right to privacy. Trump says he will make his choice by July 9, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell promises that the Senate will vote to confirm him or her this fall, presumably ahead of November's already-contentious midterm elections.
Republican Senator Susan Collins is being sent coat hangers in the mail by abortion rights activists keen to encourage her to vote down any Supreme Court nominees who would threaten Roe v. Wade. "No one was asked these questions and as far as I know no one has been asked these questions if they were brought into the process in the White House".

Former US Senator Jim DeMint (R) of SC said of Lee, "He has exactly the brilliance, the background and temperament that President Trump should be looking for". "He has been outstanding; his opinions are so well-written, so brilliant".

Barrett replied: "If you're asking whether I take my faith seriously, and I'm a faithful Catholic, I am, although I would stress that my personal church affiliation or my religious belief would not bear on the discharge of my duties as a judge".
Ms. Joan Larsen was a volunteer for Joe Biden for president in 1987, where she helped with mailings and telephoning for Biden's campaign as she admitted on her Senate questionnaire. It's unknown whether the discussion was about Lee as a potential nominee.
Trump is thought now to be looking for a candidate whose conservative credentials will please his political base and who is young enough to serve on the high court for decades.
Thapar, 49, is among the 25 shortlisted judges Trump could nominate to replace Kennedy.
