They were the only Democrats to do so. His departure likely gives the court a conservative majority. Funny, GOP leaders have insisted all these years that abolishing Roe is what most Americans want. "We are excited about the opportunity of putting justices on the court who are going to look at the original intent of the constitution and rule in that manner", said Carol Trobias of the National Right to Life Committee.
While Kennedy was a conservative, he proved to be a somewhat unpredictable "swing" vote over his long career.
