 NARAL on Today’s SCOTUS Hearing: Nothing New from Gorsuch

March 22, 2017

NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue released the following statement in response to today’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing:

“Judge Gorsuch was so evasive, arrogant, and unresponsive at his hearings that if a senator asked him if today was Wednesday, he would have refused to answer. His two days of testimony have revealed nothing new. We already know about his extreme record, especially on women’s health, and during his performance he acted more like a politician than a judge. Senate Democrats must filibuster this nomination—if it goes forward at all. 

“What needs to happen immediately is for the senate to delay the nomination given the bombshell revelations that the FBI is actively investigating the man and administration that selected Judge Gorsuch to serve on the bench.”

NARAL Pro-Choice America and its network of state affiliates are dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all Americans. NARAL works to guarantee that every woman has the right to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices, including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and choosing legal abortion. In recognition of its work defending our constitutional right to choose, Fortune Magazine described NARAL as “one of the top 10 advocacy groups in America.”


Everyone should be able to decide if, when, how, and with whom they start or grow a family.
