Statement on Trump’s nomination of Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett

On Saturday, September 26th, President Trump nominated Amy Coney Barrett to fill Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat on the Supreme Court.

Justice Ginsburg was a fierce advocate for gender equlity, LGBTQ+ people, immigrants, abortion rights, and health care for all. The nomination of Amy Coney Barrett is an active and vocal threat to reproductive health and rights and our commitment to providing comprehensive reproductive healthcare – and goes against everything for which the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg strategically and systematically fought.

Below is a statement from Lisa Gardner, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Southwestern Oregon:

“It is irresponsible and hypocritical for the Trump administration to move this Supreme Court nomination forward less than 45 days before the General Election, while the Senate should instead be focused on responding to the Covid-19 Pandemic that has claimed over 200,000 American Lives.

“We know that Senate Republicans have once again blindly lined up behind their President, and will work to push through this nomination before January 20th, breaking all norms and ignoring the majority of Americans who do not believe the seat should be filled by this President, or this Senate.

“For 27 years on the Supreme Court and throughout her entire legal career, Justice Ginsburg was fought tirelessly for equal rights, gender equality, reproductive rights, LGBTQ+ freedom, and health care for all.  We must defend her legacy, and demand that this seat not be filled before Inauguration Day.”
