There is very little time until the November 8, General Election when our country will decide who will be the next President of the United States.  Early voting starts October 20 and runs through November 5. The next president will name the Supreme Court Justice to replace Justice Anton Scalia who died unexpectedly on February 13, 2016. It is possible given the ages and health condition of other justices that the next president will be also naming more than one justice to the highest court of the land.  Naming just one will be momentous; more will mean the court will change dramatically in one way or another. The fate of the unborn babies, newly born, and the vulnerable will be the hands of the candidates selected on November 8, 2016.
