Some in the Senate will say that's enough to compel a vote against Gorsuch as a matter of principle, regardless of any case that can be made for Trump's choice. However, with Republicans controlling the majority of the Senate, Gorsuch's confirmation appears inevitable.
Gorsuch, 49, is viewed as a constitutional conservative. She then outlined her concerns with some of Gorsuch's past writings that hinted he opposed Roe v. Wade, calling the case a "super precedent" that legalized abortion and gave women a right to privacy.
"The idea that all human beings are intrinsically valuable and the intentional taking of human life by private persons is always wrong."
"Despite President Trump's promise to protect the interests of American workers, he has nominated a judge who has consistently sided with corporations over working folks".
There is still a lot of resentment among Democrats that Republicans kept former President Obama's nominee Judge Merrick Garland from even getting a hearing.
The first day of hearings in the Senate Judiciary Committee opened with Chairman Sen. "Justice Ginsberg, Justice Breyer. were not asked those questions, and Judge Gorsuch should not be either".
Congressional Democrats have been facing major pressure from the left, as the Times notes, to exact revenge for the Republicans' unprecedented obstruction of Garland's nomination a year ago, and it remains to be seen if they have the will to filibuster Gorsuch's nomination.

Mori also praised the "short period of time" in which the agreement had been reached, but not before the public outcry. The membership policy came under scrutiny when Tokyo Gov.
On the eve of Gorsuch's Supreme Court confirmation hearings, two legal groups posted a letter from Jennifer Sisk, a former law student who said she was concerned about the values Gorsuch shared with her class on legal ethics and professionalism in 2016.
Gorsuch presented the discussion "as the way he personally felt about those subjects", the anonymous student said in the affidavit, which was drafted by a member of NELA's Judicial Nominations Committee.
White House Chief of Staff Reince Preibus has said that Mr Gorsuch is a judge with "the vision of Donald Trump".
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., joked that he was certainly no fan of Trump during the campaign and made the case that Republicans didn't blockade Gorsuch's nomination to allow Trump to make a nomination because a lot of them didn't believe Trump would win last November.
Gorsuch - a respected, highly credentialed judge and conservative member of the Denver-based 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals - is President Trump's high court nominee.
The looming questions for some are whether Senate Democrats will actually initiate a filibuster to block the nomination and whether Kentucky Senator and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will shuttle such an attempt.
Gorsuch's nomination has flown under the radar in Washington as the focus has been on the litany of Trump actions such as the travel ban, budget proposal that would cut billions of dollars from agencies, executive orders and claims about Obama wiretapping Trump Tower.
Democrats may choose to filibuster, meaning one senator may stall the debate by refusing to yield the floor. But with only 52 Republicans in the Senate, Republicans could not break a Democrat filibuster, if there is one. Gorsuch met with dozens of senators in preparation for his confirmation hearing.
