The nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court is a watershed moment for those who believe that the text of the Constitution should take precedence over political biases, trends, or preferences.
There is no doubt that Judge Barrett is qualified to serve on the Court – her professional background and academic record are impressive. Moreover, her judicial philosophy includes a respect for civil rights and government restraint, especially when it comes to religious liberty.
There is no reason for Judge Barrett to be subject to the partisan smear campaign that surrounded the confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh. Sign the petition below and tell the Senate to grant Judge Barrett a speedy and civil hearing and up-or-down vote on her confirmation to the Supreme Court!
We, the undersigned, support a fair hearing and vote on the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. Judge Barrett’s background and constructionist approach to the Constitution are admirable and make her worthy of this nomination. Americans will not sit by to watch Judge Barrett’s hearing turn into a political circus. We urge a speedy and civil vote on Judge Barrett’s confirmation.
