Amy Barret and familyAmy Barrett and her family (husband and 7 children) head to the Rose Garden for Trump's announcement of her official SCOTUS nomination.

On Oct. 31, 2017 PlannedParenthoodAction.Org posted an article arguing that “the idea that Amy Coney Barrett would be a fair and impartial judge on issues of reproductive health is ludicrous.”

After the Senate had advanced the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit to the floor of the U.S. Senate. Planned Parenthood Federation of America submitted a formal letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee opposing Barrett’s nomination.

On what grounds?

pp 002Statement from Dana Singiser, then-Vice President for Government Relations and Public Policy, Planned Parenthood Action Fund:  

The idea that Amy Coney Barrett would be a fair and impartial judge on issues of reproductive health is ludicrous. We call on every United States senator to uphold a fundamental standard: If you oppose Roe v. Wade and would empower employers to deny women access to birth control, you should not sit on the bench. ​Planned Parenthood urges senators to reject the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Seventh Circuit.

“Individual rights and freedoms are at the heart of who we are as a country, including the long-established right to access safe and legal abortion. A judicial nominee who does not believe in that freedom is dangerous to the health care of people across this country. As a leading healthcare provider, we’ve see firsthand what it means for people who are forced to cross state lines, travel hundreds of miles, or wait for weeks to get an abortion — if they can at all — due to medically unnecessary restrictions intended to block access to health care. People in Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana deserve a judge who will consider their individual rights and freedoms ​and follow precedent.

Coney Barrett has a very active and vocal opposition to reproductive rights

    • Amy Coney Barrett was a member of the Notre Dame’s Faculty for Life Group from 2010 to 2016.   This is a group describes itself as “organized to promote research, dialogue, and publication by faculty, administration, and staff who respect the sacred value of human life from its inception to natural death in the spirit embodied in Evangelium Vitae and Caritas in Veritate and are committed to the legal and societal recognition of the value of all human life.”
    • Even worse, Barrett has held critical views of the Roe v. Wade decision due to her opposition to abortion and  stating that judges should not follow the law or the Constitution if it conflicts with their personal religious beliefs. It is also been reported that she believes Roe “creat(ed) through judicial fiat a framework of abortion on demand” that “ignited a national controversy.”
    • Barrett has criticized the Affordable Care Act’s guarantee that employers provide contraceptive coverage as part of their health insurance plans. She signed a letter authored by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty that objected to the Obama administration’s accommodation for religiously affiliated employers. The letter argued that the Obama administration was “morally obtuse” for failing to go far enough to accommodate religious liberty.

Remnant Editor’s Comment: Sounds good to me.

If this is how Planned Parenthood condemned Judge Barrett in 2017 over a mere US Court of Appeals nomination, one can only imagine how their heads must be spinning all the way around and the projectile vomit flying against the wall after her SCOTUS nomination.

If the possessed hags at PP hate President Trump’s nominee, I’m all in.

Thanks to Donald Trump for nominating an articulate defender of life, a faithful Catholic and a mother of 7 children.
