WASHINGTON, D.C.— This week, Moms for America Action® is in Washington, D.C., to demonstrate support for the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.
Kimberly Fletcher, founder and president of Moms for America® and Moms for America Action made the following statement today:
“Judge Barrett would be an excellent Supreme Court Justice. She is a Constitutionalist who would interpret laws as written with due respect to the legal foundation that has made our nation possible. As a woman of demonstrated integrity and mother of seven, Judge Barrett would also bring to the highest court the commonsense perspective of a mom and concern for the nation our children will inherit.
“Judge Barrett’s children are not merely part of her life but, she has made clear, they are the center of her life. In her opening remarks to the Senate Judiciary Committee she stated, ‘As I said when I was nominated to serve as a Justice, I am used to being in a group of nine—my family. Nothing is more important to me, and I am so proud to have them behind me.’
“Throughout her legal career, Judge Barrett has followed the example of her mentor Justice Antonin Scalia. Judge Barrett explains that for Justice Scalia, ‘A judge must apply the law as written, not as the judge wishes it were. Sometimes that approach meant reaching results that he did not like. But as he put it in one of his best-known opinions, that is what it means to say we have a government of laws, not of men.’
Judge Barrett would leave legislating to the duly elected representatives in Congress. She said, ‘The policy decisions and value judgments of government must be made by the political branches elected by and accountable to the People. The public should not expect courts to do so, and courts should not try.’
“Following President Donald Trump’s nomination of Judge Barrett, left-wing pundits have attacked Judge Barrett for everything from her faith to her two children who joined her family through adoption. These baseless attempts to attack Judge Barrett’s character show how desperate the Left is to prevent another appointment to the Supreme Court by President Trump. Instead of justices who rule in accordance with our Constitution, left-wing radicals want political operatives on the court who will invent arguments for the latest progressive social movement.
“For this reason, it is imperative that the United States Senate confirm Judge Barrett without delay. MFA has a petition calling for Judge Barrett’s confirmation. Moms who wish to join us in demonstrating support for the immediate confirmation of Judge Barrett can sign the petition at ConfirmationNow.com. The next appointment to the Supreme Court will affect our lives and our children’s lives for decades. Our senators have the opportunity to confirm a strong justice who will respect the freedoms ensured by our Constitution. We must call on them to act now.”
