Washington Post: “For activists who have struggled with enormous difficulties in raising the issues of abortion and judicial selection, the sudden turnaround is almost as shocking as Trump’s election for McConnell was. Interviews with more than two dozen movement leaders, Republican officials and operatives describe a half-century journey that has only begun to settle in the last decade, when abortion politics finally polarized as a partisan issue and became emerged as a high-level Republican priority. “
“Defenders of abortion rights were also stunned by the transformation, accusing the Republicans of hijacking the courts for partisan and unpopular purposes.”
New York Times: Are there any other precedents after that?
