Not that this is a huge shocker, but abortion giant Planned Parenthood has come out against the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett, President Donald Trump’s pick to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court.
Ginsburg, a Clinton-appointee, was the most progressive associate justice in the court’s history and leaves a legacy of millions of aborted unborn children.
Comey, meanwhile, is openly pro-life and, although her judicial philosophy opposes legislating from the bench, she has signaled she would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark SCOTUS ruling that essentially legalized abortion in the United States and has long been considered one of the most poorly-decided cases in the high court’s history.
Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, is fully aware that a Barrett nomination spells trouble for the future of Roe. This, of course, is something we celebrate. But to the for-profit abortion giant, this means ruin.
In an email on Sunday, Alexis McGill Johnson, the president of Planned Parenthood, urged activists to demand a “no” vote on Barrett from US Senators.
“President Trump is trying to fast track a nominee who he promised would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade and take health care coverage away from millions,” she wrote.
As LifeNews explains, if confirmed by the Senate, Barrett would establish a strong 6-3 conservative majority on the court.
Pro-life and pro-abortion activists alike know what is at stake.
Like much of those who oppose Trump and his SCOTUS pick, Johnson leans heavily on Ginsburg’s “legacy” and reportedly dying wish that she not be replaced until “the next president” is installed.
“… we know what RBG would have wanted us to do. To protect her legacy, we must fight,” McGill Johnson wrote, claiming Trump is “ignoring” Ginsburg last request.
Of course, Trump has no Constitutional obligation to honor the dying wish of a SCOTUS judge over her replacement, or anything else.
Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden, she says, will meanwhile “support the right of privacy, on which the entire notion of a woman’s right to choose is based.”
Johnson urged abortion supporters to “fight” against Barrett’s confirmation by contacting their senators.
“Email your senators and demand they hold the seat open — and not even consider a nominee — until inauguration day,” she wrote. “The Senate owes it to those who have died from COVID and the millions more who’ve lost their jobs, health insurance, and housing. It’s not an overstatement: The fate of our nation is in the hands of your senators — and it’s their job to represent YOU.”
She was, however, also forced to admit that things are looking bleak for the future of Roe at this point.
The Republican-controlled Senate has vowed to proceed with confirmation hearings and a vote on Barrett ahead of November’s general election.
