President Trump has picked Judge Neil Gorsuch as his nominee to the Supreme Court. Gorsuch's supporters say he's everything a Supreme Court Justice should be. Some liberals say any nominee Trump picks should be opposed on principle (remember Merrick Garland?). Some conservatives are also concerned Gorsuch is not sufficiently pro-life. What do you think? 👨‍⚖️

Gorsuch checks all the boxes of a typical Supreme Court Justice. He embodies the ideals conservative stand for and in many ways, he reflects the same sort of thinking Justice Antonin Scalia exhibited. 

In keeping with Republican tradition, Gorsuch leans in favor of state power over federal power — an approach that can be challenging in civil-rights cases that frequently revolve around the power of "rogue" state laws, Justin Marceau, a University of Denver law professor, told The Denver Post."We would see a judge who, while perhaps not as combative in personal style as Justice Scalia, is perhaps his intellectual equal," Marceau said, "and almost certainly his equal on conservative jurisprudential approaches to criminal justice and social justice issues that are bound to keep coming up in the country."

Some Democrats think any nominee who isn't Merrick Garland is unfit. The obstruction of Garland's nomination was a slap in the face. It would be wrong to allow anyone but him that seat. 

“This is a stolen seat. This is the first time a Senate majority has stolen a seat,” Merkley said in an interview. “We will use every lever in our power to stop this.”

For some conservatives, Gorsuch is not conservative enoughespecially on pro-life positions. 

Some pro-life activists, meanwhile, say Judge Gorsuch would not meet Mr. Trump’s pledge to put pro-life judges on the federal bench.Andrew Schlafly, a lawyer at the Legal Center for Defense of Life and son of the late conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly, said Judge Gorsuch uses pro-choice terminology in his writings and may not be willing to overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that established a national constitutional right to abortion.“Gorsuch is not pro-life,” Mr. Schlafly said. “That would break Trump’s pro-life pledge to pick Gorsuch.”
