Trump nominating Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court is the biggest loss liberals have seen in years.
Her dedication to her faith infuriates them.
And liberals are freaking out after one fact about Judge Barrett’s pro-life record came out.
The confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett are going to get ugly.
Democrats are already pulling out the big guns to take her on.
Nothing is off the table for them.
They are even going after her family, attacking her by saying it’s too big, and even claiming that her adopting two Haitian children is racist.
But their attacks will almost certainly be zeroed in on her faith, and her record of supporting the sanctity of life.
Barrett is a devout Catholic, and believes in the right to life.
And now the extent of her pro-life record is coming out.
In 2006, she signed off on a declaration making it as clear as day.
The declaration she signed is to “oppose abortion on demand and support the right to life from fertilization to natural death.”
This declaration was showcased in a two-page newspaper ad in Indiana’s South Bend Tribune taken out 14 years ago by St. Joseph County Right to Life, which is now known as Right to Life Michigan.
On the left-hand side of the ad it lists the names of those who signed onto the statement.
“We, the following citizens of Michiana, oppose abortion on demand and support the right to life from fertilization to natural death,” the ad reads.
Barrett was a University of Notre Dame law professor at the time, who shortly after became a Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals Judge.
They claim this shows that she will overturn Roe v. Wade, which is something that her supporters hope for.
Currently, they are using it to claim that she should have never been confirmed to the Seventh Circuit in 2017, as the ad was not disclosed in her hearings.
They allege that she was required to disclose that ad in those hearings.
But Ethics & Public Policy Center president Ed Whelen disagrees, arguing that none of the language she signed on to required disclosure.
Along with that, she has never been secret about her pro-life views.
She was a member of Notre Dame’s Faculty of Life group, and signed a 2015 letter showing her “solidarity with our sisters in the developing world against what Pope Francis has described as ‘forms of ideological colonization which are out to destroy the family.’”
And when it comes down to it, the Left believes that being pro-life is disqualifying to be on the Supreme Court.
