Fr. Pavone hails Senate for keeping up momentum on judicial nominees

Priests for Life


March 06, 2019
   
 
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today congratulated the U.S. Senate for moving to confirm President Trump’s nominees to the federal bench.
 
Allison Jones Rushing was confirmed for the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals in Virginia by a vote of 53-44 on Tuesday. Chad Readler, nominee for the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Ohio, was confirmed today by a vote of 52-47.
 
“The Republican members of the Senate are to be congratulated for moving forward with these confirmations over the strenuous – and often ridiculous – objections of Democrats in the chamber. Most Republican members value the sanctity of life and know it must be protected in our laws.
 
“Watching these confirmation votes, it becomes clear how important the 2018 midterm elections were in maintaining and strengthening the pro-life majority in the Senate. Moreover, to continue putting great men and women on our federal courts, it will be crucial in the 2020 elections to re-elect President Trump and continue to build the Senate majority.
 
 “The Senate has now confirmed 33 of the president’s circuit court nominees and 53 District Court judges, not to mention two Supreme Court Justices. There are still 43 nominees to the Courts of Appeal and District and specialty courts who need to be confirmed, and many more vacancies to fill. The Senate must keep up the momentum and get these nominees seated.”
 
Father Pavone also urged the Senate to confirm another nominee for the 6Th Circuit, Eric Murphy.
