Washington, DC — Operation Rescue has released the following statement concerning the upcoming confirmation hearings of Samuel Alito to the United States Supreme Court:
“Operation Rescue strongly supports the appointment of justices to the U.S. Supreme Court who would rule to nullify such unjust laws as Roe v. Wade, and who would restore the protections of legal personhood to the pre-born.
“While the nomination of Samuel Alito gives us hope, we recognize that he is a human being with human failings, and that all of his actions of the past may not be those with which we totally agree. Nevertheless, we look forward to the nomination hearings for further clarifications of his judicial philosophy, especially relating to the matter of abortion.
“We pray that Judge Alito will rise to the occasion and neither deny his faith nor deny his past support of the pre-born child. We call on him to be a man of integrity and forthrightness during these confirmation hearings and not base his answers merely upon political expediency. We urge him to speak plainly and unequivocally in support of an end to Roe v. Wade and this tragic era of decriminalized child-killing in our nation.”
