Gov. Cuomo says he'll sue if the Supreme Court rolls back Roe v. Wade

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) - New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says he'll sue if the Supreme Court rolls back Roe v. Wade.

Gov. Cuomo has been calling on lawmakers to increase protections in New York.

"We never passed the New York State law because we relied on Roe v. Wade and everyone assumed it would always be there," Gov. Cuomo said. 

During the 2016 election, Donald Trump regularly stated that he would only appoint judges to the Supreme Court that would overturn the ruling.

On Monday, President Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The Senate still has to approve the nomination. 

Democrats are pushing for a vote on the nomination until after the mid-term elections.
