Yesterday, it took the tie-breaking vote of Vice President Mike Pence for the Senate to confirm President Trump’s nominee as Education secretary, Betsy DeVos, 51-50.
The nastiness of that confirmation fight is just a taste of what’s to come in the battle to confirm President Trump’s outstanding nominee to the Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch.
DeVos is pro-life. But even though her work at the Education Department will have little to do directly with the pro-life issue, we heard opposing senators darkly suggesting she was “against women’s health,” their shorthand for believing in the right to life.
Expect a lot more of the same with Judge Gorsuch.
We’ve seen these monumental battles before. Good, honorable people trashed to keep them off the Court.
National Right to Life is a veteran of those fights, and has a powerful plan to reach out to millions of Americans to generate support for Judge Gorsuch’s confirmation. Given the fight they gave Mrs. DeVos, every bit of our efforts will be needed.
Please help that campaign today with your generous gift to the National Right to Life Committee. Your support will let us activate grassroots citizens, who will place thousands of calls, letters, and emails asking senators in key states to vote to confirm Judge Gorsuch, a true originalist judge who believes in applying the actual text of the Constitution, and the laws enacted by our elected representatives – not making up law!
Carol Tobias, President
