Pro-Life Judge Amy Coney Barrett Tapped by Trump as Ginsburg Replacement

PRESS RELEASE

Washington, D.C. – In an effort to return the U.S. Supreme Court to its proper Constitutional role of interpreting the law, President Donald Trump has nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court for the seat formerly occupied by leftist Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The Supreme Court has been controlled by an activist liberal majority for decades, and has had a penchant for usurping the power of the Legislative Branch by creating new laws with its decisions.

With Barrett’s confirmation to the Court anticipated before Election Day, November 3, 2020, all that is expected to change as the balance of the Court shifts to a solid conservative majority that reflects a pro-life point of view for the first time since abortion was decriminalized nationally in 1973.

“This is the moment we have been waiting for,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We expect that with Barrett’s confirmation, we are on the cusp of returning sanity to the Supreme Court, and with it, a healthy respect for innocent human life that has been missing since the wrongly-decided Roe v. Wade decision over four decades ago.”

Barrett, 48, is the mother of seven children, one of which has Down syndrome, and two that were adopted from Haiti.  She is also Catholic, and has made pro-life statements on the record.

She has impeccable legal credentials.  Barrett graduated first in her class in 1997 from Notre Dame Law School where she was also inducted into Phi Beta Kappa.  She clerked for Judge Laurence Silberman of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and for the great conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.  She taught law at George Washington University Law School and at her alma mater, Notre Dame, before serving on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.

“We at Operation Rescue give our unwavering support to the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the U. S. Supreme Court.  We hope that Democrats will not launch another spurious attack on her as they did so shamefully with Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  It is our prayer that the vacancy in the Court can be promptly filled without the rancor,” said Newman.  “However, we are ready for a fight, and fully intend to defend President Trump and his nominee, no matter what slings and arrows might be launched their way.”
