Wanted: A fair, honest Senate hearing for John Roberts

December 7, 2005 09:00 AM
Judie Brown, president of American Life League, issued the following statement in response to President Bush's nomination of Judge John Roberts for the United States Supreme Court:
President Bush's nomination of Judge John Roberts to the U.S. Supreme Court has garnered intense reaction from both the pro-abortion and pro-life voices in our country. There is no doubt that whomever the Senate confirms as an associate justice will have profound impact on the current laws, most importantly, the flawed rulings that have made it acceptable to kill preborn children in the womb.

It is certain that the pro-abortion lobby will now be out in full force, attempting to demand a Supreme Court justice who endorses the unrestrained slaughter of innocent preborn babies. Groups such as Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice America, and Catholics for a Free Choice have already jumped at the opportunity to assure the public that since they do not view Judge Roberts as "their man," they will not back down without a fight.

As the extremist organizations and lawmakers who support unrestricted abortion on demand attempt to make their mark in history, American Life League urges all pro-lifers to do the same. We must be prepared to respond to the attacks by pro-abortion forces to ensure that the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and eventually, the full U.S. Senate, give Judge Roberts and all judicial nominees a fair, honest hearing. The Judiciary Committee's radical, pro-abortion members must be instructed to leave their deadly agenda outside the committee room.
