TITUSVILLE, FL -- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today congratulated President Trump on his success in remaking the federal appeals court.
“With the confirmation this week of two judges for the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, President Trump continues to make good on his promise to end liberal judicial activism on the federal bench. With 13 of 29 judges on the court appointed by Republican presidents, the liberal rubber stamp of the Ninth Circuit has been stilled.”
With the Senate’s confirmation this week of Patrick Bumatay and Lawrence VanDyke for the Ninth Circuit, the president has now seated more than 170 federal judges, including his two Supreme Court nominees.
Father Pavone also noted that President Trump has flipped three courts – the Second, Third and 11th Circuits – to a conservative majority.
“With pro-life judges on federal benches, state laws protecting the unborn will have a much better chance of being enacted without needless delay,” Father Pavone said. “Very simply, this means lives will be saved.”
Father Pavone added, “The makeup of the courts was a strong motivating factor for a large proportion of voters who elected President Trump in 2016. He will be re-elected in 2020, and this will be one of the key reasons once again.”
