    So the notorious ACB"s hearing start two weeks from Monday, will conclude on that Thursday and the vote up or down the next day, Friday? A lot of these senators are in tough re-election battles and will have to miss campaigning for an entire work week, but there's an urgency to filling this seat:

    The full Senate vote will, hopefully, be by the last week of October. As I understand it, according to the rules, the Democrats can delay the committee vote by a week, and then after the committee votes the nomination out, there will be debate on the Senate floor after that.

    One of the good things that Trump has done. Hope the Supreme Court overturn Roe v Wade, which is anti-Bible and very much demonic!

    If they vote to overturn, does mot mean abortion illegal, but that each state decides if it is or not...

    A big if, but RvW prohibits states from passing laws against abortion. Overturning will enable them to do so. It's a huge step.

    They probably are not familiar with how it was almost 50 years ago before Roe. Most Americans weren’t even born yet.

    Many more Americans would have been born.

    this is a very bad "system" that has been setup in the US, when states can override the fed laws!

    SbG, the problem is you are used to a unitary system of national governance, such as is seen in the UK and France. The US system is a federal one, more akin Switzerland.

    do you think that it works well? It seems that the Fed Gov can pass a law, for example to make abortion illegal, and then each state can choose whether they implement this law or not? This looks to people like myself, from another country, that the 50 "states" in the US are individual "countries"? Very confusing! :confused:

    No. Federal law overrides state law, where there is a federal law. Overturning Roe would have nothing to do with a federal law. It would be overturning a previous Supreme Court ruling. Abortion had always been handled by the states prior to Roe, as most issues are handled by states and localities. Thus, overturning Roe would simply restore the status quo ante.

    No its called States being sovereign, as in not having totally federal Govt control!

    The Fed laws are still final authority, but the USA set it up that unless there are federal laws in place, each state is still sovereign to a degree within its borders!

    That's because in the beginning each of the Thirteen Colonies was an independent sovereign entity. The US has slowly morphed over its history from a thoroughly federal model of governance (see The Articles of Confederation) to a more national one.

    We joined the original "Common Market", in 1975. Since that time it has grown into the ugly beast that it is today, dominated by the Germans who still want to control the world!
