National Right to Life Statement on President Trump’s List of Potential Supreme Court Justices

Published on

The National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the nation’s largest pro-life organization with affiliates in all 50 states and over 3,000 local chapters nationwide, has issued a statement regarding President Trump’s expanded list of potential Supreme Court justices. Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life, expressed strong support for the candidates included in the list.

“President Trump’s expanded list of potential Supreme Court justices is laden with an impressive assembly of well-qualified men and women who would make outstanding additions to the Supreme Court, and who have demonstrated a commitment to defending the text and history of the Constitution and the principles of judicial restraint. President Trump’s list stands in stark contrast with the judicial-legislation activists who would be nominated by Joe Biden,” stated Tobias.

Commitment to Judicial Restraint

The NRLC has long emphasized the importance of appointing justices who adhere to the original text and historical context of the Constitution. The organization believes that judicial restraint is crucial in maintaining the integrity of the legal system and ensuring that the judiciary does not overstep its bounds by engaging in judicial activism. According to Tobias, the candidates on President Trump’s list embody these principles, making them ideal choices for the Supreme Court.

Contrast with Opposing Nominations

Tobias highlighted the stark difference between President Trump’s nominees and those likely to be selected by Joe Biden. The NRLC contends that Biden’s potential nominees would be judicial activists, who might legislate from the bench rather than interpreting the Constitution as it is written. This distinction is significant for the pro-life movement, as judicial activism has historically led to rulings that the NRLC views as detrimental to the protection of unborn children.

Potential Impact on Abortion Legislation

One of the central issues for the NRLC is the potential impact of Supreme Court justices on abortion legislation. The organization has been a vocal critic of the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion nationwide. By appointing justices who are committed to constitutional originalism, the NRLC hopes to see a future where Roe v. Wade is overturned, allowing states to enact more restrictive abortion laws or ban the practice entirely.

The NRLC sees the appointment of new Supreme Court justices as a critical step toward achieving this goal. Justices who adhere to the principles of judicial restraint are more likely to rule in favor of pro-life legislation and uphold laws that protect the rights of the unborn.

Broader Implications for Constitutional Interpretation

Beyond the issue of abortion, the NRLC believes that President Trump’s list of potential justices would have positive implications for constitutional interpretation more broadly. Justices who respect the original text and historical context of the Constitution are seen as essential for maintaining the rule of law and preventing the judiciary from becoming a de facto legislative body.

Tobias noted that these principles of judicial restraint ensure that changes to the law are made through the democratic process rather than by judicial decree. This approach helps preserve the balance of power among the branches of government and protects the rights of citizens.

The Importance of Supreme Court Appointments

The statement from the NRLC underscores the critical importance of Supreme Court appointments in shaping the future of American law and society. The organization views the appointment of justices as one of the most significant powers held by the President, with long-lasting implications for numerous legal and social issues.

President Trump’s commitment to releasing a list of potential Supreme Court nominees has provided transparency and allowed voters to see the type of judges he would appoint. This transparency has been praised by pro-life advocates, who see it as a commitment to upholding the values and principles that they hold dear.

Call to Action for Pro-Life Voters

The NRLC’s statement serves as a call to action for pro-life voters across the country. By highlighting the differences between President Trump’s and Joe Biden’s potential Supreme Court nominees, the NRLC aims to mobilize voters to support candidates who align with their pro-life values. The organization believes that the future of the Supreme Court and the protection of unborn children depend on the outcome of the upcoming elections.


The National Right to Life Committee’s endorsement of President Trump’s list of potential Supreme Court justices reflects the organization’s commitment to judicial restraint and constitutional originalism. By supporting candidates who adhere to these principles, the NRLC hopes to see a judiciary that protects the rights of the unborn and upholds the rule of law. As the election approaches, the NRLC continues to advocate for the appointment of justices who will defend the Constitution and the sanctity of human life.
