Family Policy Alliance Responds to Nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett for Supreme Court Justice

“Barrett’s record demonstrates her faithfulness to interpret the law as written”

WASHINGTON – Family Policy Alliance – a pro-family ministry – applauds President Trump’s decision to nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to be Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court. A Seventh Circuit judge, former professor, former clerk to the late Justice Antonin Scalia, and a dedicated wife and mom, Judge Barrett has proven herself equal to the task of serving on our nation’s high Court – and the Senate should promptly confirm her to this position.

Autumn Leva, esq., Vice President of Strategy at Family Policy Alliance, offered the following statement:

“President Trump has been very transparent with all Americans about the type of jurist he would select: one who will faithfully apply the law and protect the Constitution as written. In naming Seventh Circuit Judge Amy Coney Barrett as his nominee to our high Court, he continues to fulfill his promise to Americans.

“Judge Barrett’s record demonstrates her faithfulness to interpret the law as written and as its authors intended it, a principle about which she has written extensively. She even indicated this in her speech today at the White House, saying, ‘Judges are not policymakers and they must be resolute in setting aside in any policy views they might hold.’

“Her professional resume is stellar, leaving no question she is qualified for the position. Her personal life reveals a working mom of seven, including two adopted children and a child with Down Syndrome. And, she’s a woman of deep faith.”

In fact, her faith may be the subject of attack from the political Left during the confirmation process. Already California Senator Dianne Feinstein attacked Judge Barrett for her faith in 2017, saying, “the dogma lives loudly within you.” Yet, Leva and the Family Policy Alliance team believe these attacks are unfounded.

“The Left is scared of Judge Barrett,” added Leva, “because they know she won’t assist in their strategy to make sweeping changes to our laws and Constitution from the bench. And she may even provide the vote needed on the Court to undo prior bad decisions that did ‘legislate from the bench,’ leaving both legal and real life devastation in their wake – like Roe v. Wade. Judge Barrett’s willingness to uphold the law and the Constitution should not be counted a mark against her, but instead a reason for the Senate to promptly confirm her.”
