NORCROSS, Ga., July 10, 2018 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Georgia Right to Life (GRTL) today called on President Trump to replace his Supreme Court nominee with a solid pro-life supporter.
"We are deeply disappointed that President Trump broke his campaign promise to appoint pro-life justices by nominating Judge Brett Kavanaugh," said GRTL President Ricardo Davis. "I and our supporters will urge the President to withdraw Judge Kavanaugh's name and replace him with Judge Amy Coney Barrett."
Davis said Judge Kavanaugh's record on abortion is far from reassuring. "In his confirmation hearing to be appointed to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, the judge said he would '...follow Roe v Wade faithfully and fully...' That's a gut punch to pro-life supporters," Davis said.
Davis also noted that Judge Kavanaugh agreed that minor illegal immigrants have a constitutional right to abortions.
In addition, the judge struck a blow to religious freedom in the Priests for Life case by agreeing that the government has a compelling interest in requiring organizations to provide contraceptives and abortifacients to their employees.
"All told, the President has not lived up to what his supporters expected him to do. He needs to honor that and nominate Judge Barrett, a true champion of protecting innocent human life," Davis said.Georgia Right to Life promotes respect and effective legal protection for all innocent human life from earliest biological beginning through natural death. GRTL is one of a number of organizations that have adopted Personhood as the most effective strategy for the 21st century.
