Operation Rescue releases a video urging opposition to Sotomayor based on Obama’s statements.
Washington, DC – Many questions have been swirling since the nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court about her views on abortion.
“Those questions can be easily answered by looking at Mr. Obama’s own words. He is unequivocal in his vows to appoint a radical abortion supporter to the bench,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Don’t be fooled by a few of Sotomayor’s decisions that seemed favorable to the pro-life cause. Those decisions were based on rules of law unrelated to the issues of personhood for the pre-born or if Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided.”
Operation Rescue has released a video that shows Obama’s determination to appoint an abortion extremist to the nation’s highest court.
Obama is seen stating in reference to a potential Supreme Court nomination, “There will always be people, many of good will, who do not share my view on the issue of ‘choice.’ On this fundamental issue, I will not yield and Planned Parenthood will not yield.”
“There’s no doubt that Sotomayor has been hand-picked by President Obama to rubberstamp his abortion policies that are way out of step with the American people’s position on abortion,” said Newman. “If she did not share his radical abortion views, you can bet she would not have been nominated.”
Recent polls show that only 7% of the American people agree with Obama’s support for late-term, third trimester abortions.
“Americans must begin to contact their senators now and oppose Sotomayor and her far left legal agenda,” said Newman.
