Senate Democrats Plan Vote on Obama’s Pro-Abortion Judges

by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | 11/18/10 12:40 PM

Senate Democrats are reportedly planning to push for a vote on a handful of pro-abortion judicial nominees President Barack Obama has already put forward that have drawn strong opposition from Republicans and pro-life groups.

The vote on the judicial nominees is one of several contentious votes Democrats plan to push through during the lame duck session before the new session of Congress starts with fewer abortion advocates.

The nominees include Goodwin Liu, Edward Chen and Louis Butler — all judicial activists who are supportive of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision responsible for 52 million abortions.

The Legal Times blog indicates Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse , a Rhode Island Democrat, said yesterday that pro-abortion Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is working on obtaining enough votes to approve a cloture motion to end the Republican filibuster against the judges.

“He’s lining up the signatures,” Whitehouse said. The cloture petition needs 16 signatures and the vote would need the support of 60 senators. Read more

Take action! Contact your senators and let them know you oppose the confirmation of judicial nominees Goodwin Liu, Edward Chen, and Louis Butler.

Youth Defence, the Republic of Ireland’s leading pro-life group, this week launched a billboard and public education campaign calling on the current government to halt all plans to legalize embryonic stem cell research. Full story
