Chuck Schumer says he will “absolutely” try to block any Republican Supreme Court nominee! Tell him, no!
In November, this country voted for Donald Trump to be the next President of the United States, in large part, because of his promise to appoint a conservative, pro-life Supreme Court Justice to replace Justice Scalia. The country overwhelmingly rejected the idea of an increasingly liberal, pro-abortion and anti-marriage Supreme Court!
But despite the outcome of the election and the clear message sent by Americans, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer recently promised to block any nominee who disagrees with Roe v. Wade. Join me in telling him that we will not stand for this disregard for the value of life and the will of the people!
In an MSNBC interview, Schumer said: “It’s hard for me to imagine a nominee that Donald Trump would choose that would get Republican support that we could support.”
News flash for Senator Schumer: Republicans won the election! The Republican candidate for President won, and Republicans retain control of both the House and the Senate. The Supreme Court nominee will likely “get Republican support” because the country voted for Republicans to pick and to confirm the next Justice.
Answering the question of whether he would “do [his] best to hold the seat open,” Schumer replied: “Absolutely.”
This is blatant disregard for the will of the people! What is more, it is blatant disregard for the value of life in America.
During the election, Trump and Republicans promised that the next Justice on the Supreme Court will be a pro-life conservative. That means that Justice Scalia will be replaced by someone who believes that every life is worth protecting, and that Roe v. Wade needs to go! Democrats and Clinton promised the opposite. On the debate stage in the third Presidential Debate, Clinton stated her support for partial birth abortion, and promised that her Supreme Court nominees would do the same!
Choosing between these two options, Americans chose life! They elected the party that promised to protect each and every life, even of babies and the most vulnerable. And they knew that this protection has to start at the Supreme Court! Now, Schumer says he will try to stop a pro-life Justice from being confirmed.
Join me in standing up for life and telling Schumer that it is unacceptable to go against the will of the people and reject their choice of a pro-life Supreme Court!
