Washington, D.C. – In response to President Biden’s nomination of Ketanji Brown Jackson of the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) released the following statement:
“Joe Biden is fulfilling his promise to only appoint justices who support the Roe v. Wade regime of abortion on demand up to birth – a policy so extreme only a handful of countries in the world hold it, including North Korea and China. Ketanji Brown Jackson is backed by many of America’s most radical pro-abortion groups. She is on record opposing the free speech rights of pro-life advocates pleading to save lives outside abortion centers and supporting the false claim that abortion is ‘health care.’ We have no doubt she will work with the most pro-abortion administration in history to enshrine abortion on demand nationwide in the law,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser.
“With the Court’s decision in Dobbs expected this summer, the stakes have never been higher in the fight to protect unborn children and their mothers and let the people decide this issue through their elected representatives, not unelected judges. The overwhelming majority of Americans reject the Democrats’ extreme agenda that includes late-term abortions when unborn children can feel pain, dismemberment abortions, lethal discrimination abortions, and more. In this critical election year, SBA List will work tirelessly to ensure that voters remember this when they go to the polls and that abortion extremists face political consequences.”
In 2001, in McGuire v. Reilly, Jackson co-authored an amicus brief supporting a Massachusetts law that created a floating “buffer zone” to prevent pro-life sidewalk counselors from approaching to speak with women outside of abortion facilities. Jackson’s clients included NARAL, the Women’s Bar Association of Massachusetts, the League of Women Voters, and the Abortion Access Project of Massachusetts. NARAL and the pro-abortion National Women’s Law Center strongly supported her nomination to the D.C. Circuit.
