Barrett has three years of experience as a federal judge, serving on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals since 2017.

In those three years, Barrett has already ruled on two abortion-related cases, both times favoring restrictions on access to abortion.

Here's more on those cases:
Box v. Planned Parenthood:

Barrett joined dissenters who favored an Indiana law that would have required doctors to notify the parents of a minor seeking an abortion.

Unlike parental notification laws in other states, Indiana's didn't include a judicial bypass provision.
Indiana Dept of Health v. Planned Parenthood:

Barrett favored a rehearing of 2 state laws: 1 that regulated the fetal remains from abortion procedures and another that would have banned abortions due to sex, race or disability, including life-threatening conditions.
Following the death of RBG, the fate of Roe v Wade is in jeopardy. Unlike Trump's previous SCOTUS picks, this one will shift the balance of the court to 6 - 3.

With 17 abortion cases a step away from SCOTUS, it's likely the new court will look at abortion rights soon.
Multiple studies show that American want abortion to be legal.

More than two-thirds of Americans believe abortion should be legal in all or most cases, the highest support in more than 20 years, per @pewresearch.

12% believed the procedure should be illegal in all cases.
Join me tomorrow on CBSN where I'll be talking more about Amy Coney Barrett's record on abortion and what this means for the fate of Roe v Wade.
A note on Roe v Wade in light of Amy Coney Barrett's likely nomination:

Reversing Roe doesn't outlaw abortion. It leaves it to states.

That means a patient's ability to access abortion would be determined by where they live, and if they have the resources to travel to get one.
