Stop Michael Boggs' Confirmation

Michael BoggsPresident Obama has asked the Senate to confirm a judicial nominee who tried to channel funds to anti-choice crisis pregnancy centers and make a parental consent law even more extreme.

We've launched a public campaign to oppose the nomination of Georgia state appeals court judge Michael Boggs to the federal district court. Judges hold an incredible responsibility when they take the bench. Americans need to trust them to take an objective view of the law and not use their position to advance their personal agenda. Michael Boggs showed us his true personal agenda as a state lawmaker, and we can’t trust him with our rights.

We're disappointed that pro-choice President Obama nominated someone who doesn't share our pro-choice values. We agree with the president on a lot of things, but not this pick.

We're not the only ones who are disappointed. We lead a coalition of 27 progressive groups—including pro-choice, LGBTQ rights, and civil rights organizations—in signing a letter to members of the Senate Judiciary Committee in opposition of Boggs' confirmation. More and more members of Congress are also voicing concern about Boggs, including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
