President Donald Trump is slated to announce his nominee to replace Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy next week, and it has abortion-rights activists worried about what it could mean for the future of reproductive rights in the United States.
During his campaign, Trump promised to nominate judges who he hoped would overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade case, which legalized abortion nationwide. He even went so far as to say that women who seek abortions should be criminally punished if it did become illegal again.
