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

Share with:

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.
