Legal experts, however, aren't convinced that Kavanaugh's presence alone would automatically lead to the overturning of Roe and the 1992 landmark case Planned Parenthood vs. Casey, which upheld large parts of Roe and ruled that states can not impose an "undue burden" on patients seeking abortion.

Kavanaugh, left, President Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court, and Vice President Pence at the Capitol on Tuesday. "God forbid they do what they intend to do, which is overturn Roe v. Wade", Cuomo said.

"Now we know we're not guaranteed of having Roe v. Wade". When pressed for his opinion on that case, he responded, "The Supreme Court is held repeatedly Senator, and I don't think it would be appropriate for me to give a personal view on that case".

"Well, I don't think anybody is going to overturn Roe v. Wade", Hatch told Judy Woodruff on "PBS NewsHour".

Robin Chappelle Golston, the head of Planned Parenthood Empire State Acts - the lobbying arm of Planned Parenthood in NY state - said her group is grateful for Cuomo's efforts, and she puts the blame back on the Republicans.

"My message is to the Democrats who think resistance is just a hashtag", he said to protestors outside of Trump's skyscraper on Fifth Avenue and East 56th Street. The organization recently paid for a six-figure TV ad placement, urging Murkowski to vote against "Trump's anti-choice picks" for the Supreme Court. The group is specifically targeting vulnerable Senate Republicans including Sens. She said the breakaway Democrats helped Republicans remain in control of the Senate for the past eight legislative sessions.

New York State Attorney General Barbara Underwood also opposes Kavanaugh's nomination.

"He has prioritized keeping the IDC and the Republicans in control", Nixon said.
