Americans United for Life Announces Legal Prospectus on Probable Supreme Court Nominees
Date:5/15/2009

WASHINGTON, May 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Americans United for Life (AUL) announces today a new legal prospectus on the probable "short list" of President Obama's Supreme Court nominees, and their records on life issues. AUL is the nation's first national pro-life organization and the leading legal and public policy organization in the pro-life movement.

The comprehensive, concise document identifies nine probable nominees and highlights cases, past writings, opinions, and arguments indicating affinities for pro-abortion activism. In addition, it explains how past interpretations by some of the individuals could be applied to future rulings on life issues. The prospectus also identifies personal endorsements of and political contributions to extreme, pro-abortion activist groups.

For example, Solicitor General Elena Kagan tops many "short-lists" and yet she has publicly and repeatedly criticized federal regulations that prohibit federally funded abortion counseling. Kagan argues that the regulations amount to the subsidization of "anti-abortion" speech. Another short-list topper, Judge Diane Wood, has disputed the constitutionality of partial-birth abortion bans enacted in Illinois and Wisconsin.

AUL President Dr. Charmaine Yoest states:

"The records of these potential nominees are absolutely the most radically pro-abortion our country has ever seen. Every potential nominee is pro-abortion and would advance President Obama's radical agenda to enact FOCA, eliminating every restriction on abortion nationwide. In their records, we see examples such as ruling in favor of taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand, vetoing common-sense abortion regulations, favoring an expansive right to privacy, and restricting the First Amendment rights of pro-life activists.

"One of the reasons for the controversy surrounding President Obama's visit to Notre Dame this weekend is the gap between what he says and what he does with respect to life issues. In his first 100 days in office, he has made policy changes, appointments, and public promises that directly contradict his claim of wanting to reduce the number of abortions.

"We expect that with this upcoming nomination, he will continue the rhetoric of valuing the protection of all human life while in reality undermining protections currently in place. We will continue to work to draw attention to this gap, and we will make the pro-life voice heard during this nomination process."

Probable "Short List"

  • Elena Kagan, Solicitor General of the United States
  • The Honorable Diane Wood, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit
  • Janet Napolitano, U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security
  • The Honorable Leah Ward Sears, Chief Justice of the Georgia Supreme Court
  • The Honorable Sonia Sotomayor, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit

Other Potential Nominees

  • Governor Deval Patrick of Massachusetts
  • Kathleen M. Sullivan, Stanford Law School
