Pro-Life Judge Wendy Vitter Gets Approval Of Senate Judiciary Committee

The Senate Judiciary Committee approved President Trump’s nomination of Wendy Vitter for the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana. The committee approved Vitter in an 11-10 party-line vote. She has pro-life views, and Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups are livid.

Planned Parenthood Vice President Dawn Laguens said,

Wendy Vitter may just be Trump’s worst judicial nominee so far — and if you’ve been paying attention, you know that’s really saying something. Unless we stop her confirmation, she could enforce her extreme, anti-abortion views as law, endangering our health and rights and putting lives at risk.

She is very pro-life, so that’s a fact, and has received the Proudly Pro-Life Award from the New Orleans Right to Life Educational Foundation.

Wendy Vitter wants to protect unborn babies from being murdered, and give them a chance at life. That is not endangering life, that’s saving it. NARAL Pro-Choice America, the radical pro-abortion group, is up in arms over Vitter as well, claiming she has spent her career spreading anti-choice misinformation, fueling the myth that abortion is dangerous.  This, of course, is not a myth, because not only does abortion provide a risk to the mom, it is always 100% fatal to the baby. NARAL had doubled down on calls to the Senate to reject her, claiming she is unfit for that role.
