Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trump's nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court, has ruled against the Affordable Care Act's contraception coverage mandate and vehemently opposes assisted suicide.
Gorsuch, a federal judge on the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for a decade, was nominated by President Trump to fill a vacancy left by the unexpected death of conservative Judge Antonin Scalia nearly a year ago and still vacant because Republicans blocked then-President Barack Obama's nominee.
If Gorsuch's nomination is approved, the majority of justices on the court will have been appointed by Republican presidents. Right now the court is split 4-4.
