Liberal women’s groups and Planned Parenthood are pulling no punches when going after President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett.
The National Organization for Women, which is connected to a PAC that endorsed the Biden-Harris ticket, said Barrett “will turn back the clock on equality.”
“Donald Trump and the Senate Republicans want to steal another seat on the Supreme Court so that Amy Coney Barrett can help repeal Roe [v. Wade] and shred the Affordable Care Act – but not before she votes with a new, ultra-conservative majority to validate an election he intends to steal,” the National Organization for Women said in a statement.
The president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the political arm of the organization, said nominating Barrett constituted a “particular insult to the legacy of Justice [Ruth Bader] Ginsburg.”
“Barrett’s history of hostility toward reproductive health and rights, expanded health care access, and more demonstrate that she will put Justice Ginsburg’s long record of ensuring that everyone receives equal justice under the law at risk,” Planned Parenthood President Alexis McGill Johnson said in a statement.
Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court puts everything we care about at risk — health care coverage, abortion, and reproductive health care.
We have to fight back with everything we have.
