March for Life President Vice President of Government Affairs Tom McClusky had an op-ed published in the American Thinker providing an in-depth analysis of the significance of the Supreme Court vacancy.
President Obama and his allies insist on installing his nominee on the Supreme Court before he leaves office. If President Obama’s nominee were to be confirmed, it would be a huge victory for the pro-abortion side, and a huge loss for unborn lives. Letting President Obama flip Justice Scalia’s vote would open the door for partial-birth abortion to be legal (Justice Scalia’s fifth vote in Gonzales v. Carhart) and allow for state and federal governments to force individuals as well as churches to pay for abortions and drugs that act as abortifacients. Do you believe that parents should be notified if their thirteen-year-old daughter is considering an abortion? Or perhaps you believe that a newborn baby that survives an abortion should get medical attention? This president and his allies disagree with all of these proposals and would only accept a Supreme Court nominee who agrees with them, not you, on what is extreme.
