Washington, D.C. (WLNS)–Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett is in the hot seat, facing tough questions from the senate judiciary committee on day two of her confirmation hearing.

The committee’s top democrat, Senator Dianne Feinstein, pressed Barrett on whether she believed Roe versus Wade, the landmark abortion rights case, was rightly decided.

When asked about the current case challenging the Affordable Care Act, the federal judge said she’s made no commitment on how she’d decide.

The republican-led senate judiciary committee scheduled a vote on Barrett’s nomination Thursday, Democrats are expected to ask for a one week delay.
