Friday Biden announced his nominee to the Supreme Court of the United States: Ketanji Brown Jackson, who currently sits on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.
When the New York Times questioned Biden about the criteria for potential Supreme Court picks during his presidential campaign, Biden responded that his nominee “will in fact support Roe v. Wade.”
Living up to the expectation that he would nominate an abortion radical, Jackson immediately garnered the praise of anti-Life groups across the nation.
NARAL applauded Jackson’s Supreme Court nomination, saying, “(w)e need a justice on the bench who will uphold reproductive freedom. This historic nomination is a chance to shape the Court for decades to come.”
Before Jackson can ascend to the nation’s highest court she must be vetted by the Senate Judiciary Committee and then confirmed by a simple-majority vote by the full Senate body. Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Richard Durbin, a Democrat from Illinois, has announced his goal to confirm Jackson before the Senate’s Easter recess.
With a 50-50 Republican to Democrat split in the Senate and Kamala Harris as the tie-breaker, Court experts widely expect Jackson’s nomination to sail smoothly through the Senate.
Tragically, Jackson is expected to be a consistent vote for the murder of preborn children. However, because she is replacing Stephen Breyer, another solidly anti-Life judge, Jackson will not shift the balance of abortion opinions on the court.
Jackson’s nomination comes as the Supreme Court is expected to render a decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a case that could overturn Roe v. Wade. She will replace Breyer after the Court’s decision in Dobbs.
