Federal Judge Amy Berrett is up for the job because she IS Conservative and has been against Roe v Wade…
It’s her Politics….
She is now telling people that all the above won’t influence her calls when she gets the job….
She is even praising other women Supreme Court justices!…
Those justices HAVE supported ‘women’s rights’ = Abortion….
The question will be?
Does the questions and press from Democratic Senator’s move the future Supreme Court member to actually support women’s right’s?
Judge Amy Coney Barrett will tell the Senate Judiciary Committee that she did not pursue a seat on the nation’s highest court but pledged to serve on “an independent Supreme Court that interprets our Constitution and laws as they are written,”
“I have been nominated to fill Justice Ginsburg’s seat, but no one will ever take her place,” Barrett said.
In an expertly bland four-page statement, Barrett did not mention her religion, her conservative credentials or what her nomination meant for the balance of the Supreme Court.
Democrats are waging a battle against the process to fill the seat left vacant by Ginsburg’s death on Sept. 18 and argue that the winner of the Nov. 3 election should choose the next justice. In this week’s confirmation hearings, Democrats are expected to focus on the Affordable Care Act and abortion. Prior to becoming a federal judge, Barrett criticized Chief Justice John Roberts’ vote to uphold the Affordable Care Act.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Sunday that Barrett’s opening statement did “nothing” to alleviate Democratic concerns about her nomination and called on her to recuse herself from cases involving the Affordable Care Act or the upcoming election. President Donald Trump has said he needs nine justices on the court in the event of a contested election.
“Given Judge Barrett’s conflicts of interest she should recuse herself,” Schumer said.
Barrett so far has given no indication she would recuse herself from those cases, and Senate Republicans have rejected those calls….
