President Donald Trump has nominated 10th Circuit Appeals Court Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the Supreme Court seat previously held by the late Justice Antonin Scalia. Judicial analysts agree that Gorsuch is a judge in the mold of Scalia--someone who interprets the U.S. Constitution the way that it was originally written, and will not try to make new radical laws from the bench.
As Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life, stated, "All too often our efforts to protect unborn children and other vulnerable humans have been overridden by judges who believe they have a right to impose their own policy preferences. We are heartened that Judge Gorsuch appears to share Justice Scalia's view that federal judges are constrained to enforce the text and original intent of constitutional provisions, and on all other matters should defer to democratically elected lawmakers."
The minute Judge Gorsuch's nomination was announced, pro-abortion forces began an intense campaign to defeat his appointment. That is why we must work now to show our support for this outstanding nominee.
