Confirmation votes are scheduled for tomorrow, June 11, 2012 in the US Senate. Obama’s nominee to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is Andrew Hurwitz.
As a young law clerk, Andrew Hurwitz helped draft a lower court ruling that played a crucial influence in Justice Harry Blackmun’s infamous opinion in Roe v. Wade, the 5-4 decision that twisted the text of the Constitution into a right to abortion.
A growing number of lawyers, judges, and medical professionals (not to mention a majority of the American public) think the ruling is indefensible. And while fewer stand by its flawed logic, Hurwitz has rushed to its defense, recently authoring a law review article celebrating the “careful and meticulous analysis” he helped craft in an opinion that has claimed the lives of tens of millions of unborn lives.
A nominee like Mr. Hurwitz, who played so notable a role in one of the most significant exercises of judicial activism in our nation’s history, must not be confirmed.
YOU CAN HELP STOP THIS INJUSTICE…..BUT YOU MUST ACT QUICKLY!!!
Contact both of your US Senators. Email or phone them and strongly urge them to VOTE AGAINST CONFIRMING ANDREW HURWITZ. You can email them by clicking HERE or you may phone the US Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121. A switchboard operator will connect you directly with the Senate office you request.
As a self-described architect of the decision that cost America over 55 million lives, Hurwitz doesn’t deserve a promotion.
