Conservative leaders celebrated the “historic” confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett following her confirmation ceremony Monday night. The United States Senate voted to officially confirm Barrett to the Supreme Court Monday night
Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden drew almost immediate fire from both the right and the left on Thursday after he suggested in a new interview that if elected he would move to set up a blue-ribbon commission to take a look at overhauling the U.S. court system.
Conservative non-profit groups plan to spend about $30 million by month’s end advocating Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court, according to people familiar with the activities.
Anti-abortion activists on Thursday declared victory after Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee unilaterally pushed Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation vote before the whole Senate. Barrett’s confirmation, which is expected by a slim majority on Monday, is a “historic milestone for the pro-life movement,” said Susan B. Anthony List President Majorie Dannenfelser.
“We did it.” Today Judge Amy Coney Barrett advanced one step closer to confirmation as the next U.S. Supreme Court justice. It’s a turning point in the battle to protect unborn children and their mothers, and another key promise made, promise kept by President Trump. Judge Barrett is an inspiration and a role model for women and girls everywhere. As a young woman who has dedicated my career to ending the injustice of abortion, this moment holds particular significance.
A century ago, the Suffragettes finally succeeded in winning the right to vote for women. They would be thrilled to see the nomination of a woman so uniquely qualified to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court as Judge Amy Coney Barrett, were they alive today. It’s easy to imagine them storming the streets of America and urging that Judge Barrett be confirmed, and by a wide margin.
We are wrapping up a historic event in our nation: the Senate confirmation hearing for 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Amy Coney Barrett for a seat on the Supreme Court. If confirmed, Judge Barrett would be the first mother of school-age children to serve on the high court.
This is the first time I have seen a woman in the upper echelons of the U.S. government in whom I recognize something of myself and my approach to feminism. Specifically, this is a feminism which holds that a flourishing family is not an obstacle to personal success and that pro-life views are compatible with being both compassionate and educated—in this case, devastatingly intelligent.
One of the defining characteristics of modern feminists is their brazen insistence on applying their supposedly ironclad pro-woman principles only to women whose views they favor. Consider left-wing super PAC Emily’s List, which exists solely to fund the campaigns of pro-abortion Democratic women. The group’s fundraising pitches routinely insist that we must “elect! more! women!” What they really mean, of course, is that we need to elect more women who agree with them.
The weekend that President Trump announced Judge Amy Coney Barrett as his pick for the next justice of the Supreme Court, a conversation between a self-described “feminist” and a Students for Life Action team member ended when the frustrated abortion advocate reacted with violence, striking the pro-life woman in the face.
