Governor Cuomo is upping the stakes in his disagreement with Republicans on the state and federal level over the right to choose abortion, now that President Trump has announced his choice of conservative judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill a vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court. Cuomo now says he’ll sue the federal government if the court overturns Roe v. Wade.

Hours before President Trump announced his choice to fill the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court, Governor Andrew Cuomo railed against the selection. He also signed an executive order to help protect the reproductive choice rights of New York’s women, should a future court overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade decision.
