Jackson Confirmation is a Reminder: Elections Matter
Today, the Senate voted to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to be an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court 53-47.
Statement from Nicole Hudgens, Government Affairs for Family Policy Alliance:
“If there’s one thing Americans must take note of today it’s this: elections matter. The Senate just voted to confirm someone whose decisions will impact American law and culture for years to come. And it must not be lost today that every vote in favor of Judge Jackson was made by someone elected by the people of his or her state – and someone who must answer to that same electorate.
“Americans must hold our U.S. Senators accountable in the upcoming election to ensure pro-life and pro-family governance at all levels. We call on Americans to fully engage from the top of the ballot to the bottom in these upcoming elections to protect our God-given and constitutional freedoms for future generations.”
While Judge Jackson is highly credentialed, her statements both recent and past have raised concerns about how she will rule in the nation’s highest court and how her decisions will affect women, children, and the rights of everyday Americans.
While Judge Jackson declined to take a position on whether individuals have natural rights, she easily affirmed her belief that abortion is a constitutional right. She could not define the word ‘woman,’ and said she does not know when life begins, or whether preborn children feel pain. Her previous rulings on child pornography cases also raised grave concerns.
