MARIE HARF (CO-HOST): Pro-choice is not pro-abortion and I think sometimes the Democratic Party gets too close to making it seem like that. I think this should be about women's health and women's ability to control their own bodies, and about not having a bunch of men at the Supreme Court telling you what you can and can't do. 

KATIE PAVLICH (CO-HOST): Well, seven men decided Roe v. Wade so I'm wondering if they were allowed to decided it then and now men on the court aren't allowed to have opinions? 

...

We are hearing all about how women are terrified everywhere, how they're quaking in their boots, how they're mortified that they're going to die, how contraception isn't going to be available. As a woman, I am not worried about any of those things, and we've been hearing about the threat of Roe v. Wade being overturned for 40 years, it hasn't happened, it's unlikely to happen for all the reasons that you just laid out and all of the posturing and scare tactics that are being used are not only dishonest, but they're very surface level arguments that don't get us to the crux of the issue in debating whether [Judge Brett] Kavanaugh is a valid credentialed nominee to be sitting on the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court could overturn Roe v. Wade. Don’t buy these right-wing excuses that it’s not a big deal.

Fox guest: "Any justice that the president appoints" to replace Anthony Kennedy "should be against Roe v. Wade"

Fox contributor inaccurately claims it is "unlikely" abortion would be inaccessible without Roe v. Wade
