March for Life Petitions Senate Majority Leader McConnell to Reject Nominee

Washington, D.C. – On Saturday, February 13th the United States learned of the passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. In the days that followed, the nation mourned the enormous loss of this man, not only to his family and friends but also to our country. After news broke of Justice Scalia’s death, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley (R-IA) released statements defending the rights of all Americans.

As the President announces his choice for nominee to the Supreme Court today, The March for Life Education and Defense Fund has launched a petition to urge Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to reject President Obama’s pro-abortion Supreme Court nominee, and to wait until “we the people” have a voice in November.

“Pro-abortion advocates such as President Obama aim to undo the pro-life state laws that have been passed since Roe vs Wade,” said Jeanne Mancini, President of the March for Life Education & Defense Fund. “In order to accomplish this, President Obama has said that he will nominate a liberal to the Supreme Court. We urge Senate Majority Leader McConnell and Chairman Chuck Grassley to reject President Obama’s pro-abortion Supreme Court nominee, and to wait until ‘we the people’ have a voice in November.”

The petition can be read below and can be found here:

The American people should have a voice in the selection of the next Supreme Court Justice. I want to thank you for your promise to stand up for the American people and stop President Obama from placing a pro-abortion advocate on the Supreme Court during his final term of office.

By doing so you not only stand for the American people but also for the U.S. Constitution.

The future of the Supreme Court is at stake, including many cases involving the protection of unborn babies and the safety of women.

I, the undersigned, urge and encourage you to reject President Obama’s pro-abortion Supreme Court nominee, and to wait until “we the people” have a voice in November.

The March for Life in Washington, D.C., began as a small demonstration on January 22, 1974, the first anniversary of the now-infamous Supreme Court decisions in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton and rapidly grew to be the largest pro-life event in the world.  The peaceful demonstration that has followed on this somber anniversary every year since is a witness to the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time, abortion.

Jeanne Mancini, President of the March for Life Education & Defense Fund is available for commentary. For more information, please contact Ryan Hughes at RHughes@SBPublicAffairs.com or (703) 739-5920.
