Supreme Court Upholds Decision To Allow Abortion Pills To Be Mailed


The usual in-person requirement for abortion pills was relaxed in a lower court decision due to the pandemic.

President Trump has set a date to announce his next Supreme Court nominee, and Republican Senate leaders say they have the votes to confirm her before Election Day. CBS News correspondent Nikole Killion and Wall Street Journal congressional reporter Siobhan Hughes spoke to "Red and Blue" host Elaine Quijano about who the leading contenders are and how quickly they could be confirmed.
US Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney #Barrett's Senate confirmation kicks off in earnest on Monday as Republicans seek to place her on the bench ahead of the presidential election next month in the face of blanket Democratic opposition. The hearing is a key step before a final full Senate vote by the end of October on her nomination for a lifetime job on the court.
Amy Coney Barrett is pledging to carry out her duties as a Supreme Court justice "without any fear or favor" toward government or her own beliefs. Barrett spoke after taking the first of two oaths that will allow her to join the high court. (Oct. 26)
