As you guys know, I’m a big believer in what I call the Ivins Rule (may the Blessed Molly Ivins memory be a joy): don’t listen to what they say, look at their record. Here’s some more of Justice Gilead’s record:
The Guardian (emphasis mine):
“Amy Coney Barrett, the Trump administration’s supreme court nominee, publicly supported an organization in 2006 that has said life begins at fertilization,”
“It has also said that the discarding of unused or frozen embryos created in the in vitro fertilization process ought to be criminalized, a view that is considered to be extreme even within the anti-abortion movement.”
The Daily Beast:
Amy Coney Barrett Signed Letter Urging End of ‘Barbaric’ Roe v. Wade
Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett signed a letter in 2006 that included a call for the end of Roe v. Wade, denouncing the seminal court decision that provided a legal right to abortion as “barbaric.”
The letter came in the form of an advertisement from the anti-choice group St Joseph County Right to Life which was based in South Bend, Indiana.
“The Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalized abortion for any reason,” the ad read. “It’s time to put an end to the barbaric legacy of Roe v. Wade and restore laws that protect the lives of unborn children.”
Believe who she is, peeps. She’s shown us that she is a radical theocrat. And we are giving Justice Coathanger a Golden Schlafly Lifetime Achievement Award for being a woman doing the most harm to women.
