The questioning of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch continued Wednesday in the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. With Gorsuch expected to tip the Supreme Court scales toward conservatives, Democrats are especially concerned about what Gorsuch will mean for a number of traditionally liberally causes, including women's reproductive rights.
