President Donald Trump has nominated federal appeals court Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. Barrett has taken the pro-life side on two cases involving pro-life laws to save babies from abortion. She is a Christian who believes life begins at conception and has questioned the legitimacy of Roe v. Wade, which has allowed abortion on demand since 1973.
Amy Barrett, a law professor at the University of Notre Dame and judge on the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, has pointed out how both pro-life and pro-abortion legal experts have criticized Roe v. Wade as a bad decision.
The infamous abortion ruling, handed down by an all-male Supreme Court in 1973, forced states to legalize abortion on demand, rather than allow voter-elected state legislatures to decide for themselves if they want to protect unborn children. By creating through judicial fiat a framework of abortion on demand Barrett has said the court’s concurrent rulings in Roe and Doe v. Bolton “ignited a national controversy.”
Barrett has spoken about her own conviction that life begins at conception. She signed a public letter in 2015 that emphasized “the value of human life from conception to natural death.”
Amy Barrett is a former clerk of the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. Like Scalia, Barrett describes herself as an “originalist” judge as opposed to a liberal activist who will make up the law from the bench.
The judge is a mother of seven, including adopted children and is the mother of a child with Down Syndrome at a time when the abortion industry is targeting babies with Down Syndrome in abortions.
We believe Amy Barrett is qualified to be a Justice on the Supreme Court and call on the Senate to confirm her nomination.
