CNN is looking at the possibility of Jackson changing his mind about abortion

Welcome to Poppy Harlow New York Senior correspondent of the newspaper and The infamous RBG In the Wednesday edition of co-author Erin Carmon CNN Newsroom To discuss their hopes that Ketanji Brown Jackson will eventually be able to change the minds of his final Supreme Court colleagues on gender inequality, primarily abortion.

Realizing that Jackson would not change the court’s ideological makeup, Harlow sought a silver lining:

I know he won’t change the balance of the court, 6-3, but I wonder if you agree with Linda Greenhouse. New York Times Who wrote earlier this month that he might “not change the court, but he can change the conversation very well and this is a start.” And he talked about how former Justice Thergood Marshall, according to him, was able to influence former Justice Sandra Day O’Connor while sitting on the bench together and I wonder if you think, perhaps over time, Justice Jackson could do the same?

Carmon shared the same hope: “I mean, Justice O’Connor himself has often crossed the isle on the issue of gender inequality, you know, although he and Justice Ginsberg did not agree on much of what they were able to find. Common ground in women’s rights cases. “

After referring to a Fourth Amendment case in which Ginsberg persuaded his fellow judges to make the search for a teenage daughter’s strip unconstitutional, Carmon used the case in the hope that Jackson could refute pro-life arguments:

Every day, in every single term, the court is working on these questions – racial and gender inequality, justice, what is the proper remedy for these problems and therefore keeping someone at home for whom these are not theoretical, especially yes, we hope this case, this abortion decision What may be memorable, may be reversed Rowe vs. WadeThis will not be the last time that courts consider abortion and often these anti-abortion restrictions are created in the name of protecting black women or black children and so rhetorically addressed to someone who can then say at home, there is information, there is something alive without their deep legal credentials. There is experience, I think it makes a big difference.

“Presumably, there is no need for abortion restrictions to protect black children and children of all races.” It also rejects the notion that Jackson is an impartial judge who will set aside his own beliefs and preferences when deciding cases.

Harlow concludes by agreeing with his guest’s point of view on abortion: ‚ÄúThis is a really important issue. Erin Carmon, I’m glad to have you. I’m sorry to be short this morning, but we’ll get back to you soon. “

Poppy Harlow: I know he won’t change the balance of the court, 6-3, but I wonder if you agree with Linda Greenhouse. New York Times Sandra de O’Connor, who wrote earlier this month that she may not “change the court, but she can change the conversation very well and this is a start” and she believes that former Justice Thergood Marshall was able to influence the former judge. During their time together on the bench and I wonder if you think, perhaps over time, Justice Jackson could do the same?

Irene Carmon: Of course, we see something in history. I mean, Justice O’Connor himself has often crossed the Isle several times on issues of gender inequality, you know, although he and Justice Ginsberg did not agree on many issues when they managed to find common ground in the case. Concerned about women’s rights. And – and– Justice Ginsberg once told me in an interview that he was able to persuade his colleagues to change their minds in a Fourth Amendment case involving the search for a teenage girl.

Harlow: That’s right

Carmon: – To help them understand how aggressive it will be, this is how they will be explored as a teenage girl. This is of course important and every day, in every single term, the court is dealing with questions about racial and gender inequality, justice, what is the proper remedy for these problems and therefore having someone in this room for whom these are not theoretical, especially yes, we expect this case. Doing this, abortion decisions that may be memorable may be reversed Rowe vs. WadeThis will not be the last time that courts consider abortion and often these anti-abortion restrictions are created in the name of protecting black women or black children and so rhetorically addressed to someone who can then say at home, there is information, there is something alive without their deep legal credentials. There is experience, I think it makes a big difference.

Harlow: That’s really important. Erin Carmon, nice to meet you, sorry for being brief this morning, but we’ll get back to you soon. Thanks again.
