Senator Josh Hawley Reveals He Will Only Vote For SCOTUS Nominee With This History On Key Court Issue

(Liberty Bell) – In 2016, many Americans found themselves faced with one of the most important elections of their lifetime, if not US history as a whole.

Before them was a political outsider who vowed to defend the right to life, the right to free speech and religion, and the right to bear arms, and the queen of establishment swamp monsters who vowed to put in place radical and unconstitutional restrictions on these fundamental American rights than our nation has ever seen.

For millions of Americans, this made the choice abundantly obvious.

They took their chances on Trump, and he’s turned out to be one of the most pro-life, pro-God, and pro-gun presidents our nation has had.

But it is his judicial legacy that has the potential to not only make our nation great again, but make it just again.

So far, he’s had two chances to leave this legacy on the highest court in the land: the Supreme Court of the United States.

There is a very good chance he’ll secure one more nominee, should he be re-elected, possibly even before, judging by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s’ ongoing health battles.

For Senator Josh Hawley, who would take part in the confirmation hearings for said Trump nominee, whether he will vote to confirm will be as simple a choice as the one Americans were faced with in 2016.

Life or death.

Hawley told the Washington Post that he will only vote to confirm a nominee who has a record of opposing Roe v. Wade, the landmark SCOTUS ruling that effectively legalized abortion in the United States.

A nominee will only be eligible to secure his approval if they disagree with the high court’s 1973 abortion decision.

“I will vote only for those Supreme Court nominees who have explicitly acknowledged that Roe v. Wade is wrongly decided,” Hawley told WaPo. “By explicitly acknowledged, I mean on the record and before they were nominated.”

“I don’t want private assurances from candidates,” he said “I don’t want to hear about their personal views, one way or another. I’m not looking for forecasts about how they may vote in the future or predications. I don’t want any of that. I want to see on the record, as part of their record, that they have acknowledged in some forum that Roe v. Wade, as a legal matter, is wrongly decided.”

“Roe is central to judicial philosophy. Roe is and was an unbridled act of judicial imperialism. It marks the point the modern Supreme Court said, ‘You know, we don’t have to follow the Constitution. We won’t even pretend to try.’ ” he also stated.

“This standard, for me, applies to Supreme Court nominees, whether they’re a sitting judge or whatever,” he said. “If there is no indication in their record that at any time they have acknowledged that Roe was wrong at the time it was decided, then I’m not going to vote for them — and I don’t care who nominates them.”

  1. Abortion is not a SCOTUS decision. It is a States decision. Almost every decision made concerning abortion has been wrong. The Supreme Court does not have jurisdiction over God, Heaven, Hell, or anything else not of this country on this globe. You screw up most everything you get your hands on! Murder is a States issue, not Federal. So each State can decide this issue for itself. The idea that “it’s the woman’s body” is also pure bunk. The baby also has a body, organs, nervous system, etc. If a woman decides to have an abortion she is deciding to murder a living growing human. Period.

  2. So sad that the Supreme Court justices are labeled as conservative or liberal leaning. They are supposed to be only CONSTITUTIONAL minded. They are supposed to be UNBIASED but they have become activists for causes that are not constitutional but social experiments. We have several clowns on the bench. I do no accusations but they themselves have shown that they are clowns and errorronously decide on issues that are DESTROYING our country. Many of them probably don’t seek God to decide JUSTLY on causes and issues brought before them. They are also influenced by lobbyists and power groups. This shouldn’t be, help us Jesus almighty.

  3. “Pro-Choice” judicial decisions have no more to do with privacy than flag burning has to do with freedom of speech! Personal privacy and freedom of speech are both PASSIVE constructs, while abortion and flag burning are both negative ACTIONS designed to instigate hostile REACTIONS by those in the Conservative camp! Since life begins at conception, the abortion provider and the woman seeking the termination of her pregnancy are equally culpable in the eyes of the Almighty, Who is merely a considerably HIGHER AUTHORITY than mortal man! On the other hand, flag burning is a more secular issue as only SYMBOLISM is mainly involved! Of course, some take their symbols more seriously than others! Our national flag symbolizes our entire country, and efforts by the adherents of hostile ideologies to burn or otherwise desecrate Old Glory are intentionally designed to provoke a negative response from concerned Conservatives! A country- rock singer named Craig Fisher has a song title that pretty well sums it all up: “If You Feel Free To Burn My Flag, Then I Feel Free To Kick Your Ass!” Progressives EVERYWHERE should be strongly encouraged to REMEMBER that!

  4. Just the fact that the killing of a baby is not justifiable as the killing of millions of Jews & those people that participates in the act are no criminally different.

  5. The leftist abortionist keep harping on how abortion is “legal”, as though Congress enacted a law. If the SCUTUS were to take up Roe-vs-Wade again, maybe Congress will have to do their job . . .
    I don’t want any more supreme court judges who walk away from the Constitution. It is the ONLY thing they are supposed to be using to guide their decisions.
    The left wants judges who will use their social bents and feelings, and hope one day the Constitution will be rewritten or eliminated.
