In a campaign event in Austin, Texas, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders declared he would only nominate Supreme Court judges who are in favor of abortions up to birth.
Sanders believes there is a constitutional right to abortion up to birth.
“My promise to you is I will never nominate anybody to the Supreme Court or the federal bench who is not 100 percent pro-Roe. v Wade,” Sanders stated, alluding to the Supreme Court case that nationalized abortion.
On the other hand, President Donald Trump has put dozens of solid conservative judges on the federal courts, which include pro-life advocates.
According to Steven Ertelt of Life Site News, Trump’s faithfulness in nominating conservatives to the bench has been praised by pro-lifers.
Melissa Clement of Nevada Right to Life salutes Trump for keeping his promise.
“In 2016, a lot of us voted for President Trump solely on the promise of pro-life judges, half expecting the usual bait and switch. I am happy to say we are not waiting until after the next election. Promises made have been kept and will continue,” Clement commented.
Some 47 years ago, the Supreme Court created a right to abortion from whole cloth. With Roe v. Wade (and the accompanying Doe v Bolton), abortion was legalized and legitimized for all nine months of pregnancy, for any reason. Seven judges changed the course of history and, in the process, sentenced more than 60 million unborn Americans – so far – to death,” Clement asserted. “We have made progress in protecting the unborn in many states, but every positive law that protects the unborn and their mothers ends up in front of judges.
“Elections matter. We need good, brave pro-life legislators and we need strict constructionist judges that will not overturn pro-life legislation,” Clement continued.
The pro-life activist believes the president has done a great job on his judicial appointments.
“President Donald J. Trump has kept his pro-life promise of nominating solid judges,” she said.
Ertelt noted some of the solid pro-life appointments Trump made:
Some of Trump’s judges include Matthew Walden McFarland, a former member of the Federalist Society, a conservative legal group, and the pro-life organization Scioto County Right to Life. Fellow nominee Anuraag Hari Singhal, a Florida state judge, is a member of the Thomas More Society, a pro-life legal organization, and the Federalist Society. Another nominee, Daniel Mack Traynor, of North Dakota, served as a member of the Thomas More Society and the Christian Legal Society.
Trump’s nominations of U.S. Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh have also received praise.
One of the highlights of the Trump administration has been his judicial nominees which have brought back rule of law into the courts.
More importantly, it’s kept radical judicial activism in check.
Conservatives should be grateful that they have a president in Donald Trump that is willing to appoint judges that will not turn the judiciary into another legislative branch.

Greg Abbott Signs Executive Order Keeping Violent Criminals from Going Back on the Streets During the Wuhan Crisis
After the Wuhan Virus was confirmed in several Texas jails in the last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order on March 29, 2020 that makes it more difficult for several inmates to be let out on “no-cost, personal recognizance bonds.”
Abbott tweeted, “Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails. We want to prevent the spread of #COVID19 among prison staff & inmates. But, releasing dangerous criminals in the streets is not the solution. #txlege #coronavirus”
Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails.

Several cases of the Wuhan Virus were discovered in the Dallas County Jail and Harris County Jail last week, two of the state’s largest jails. In addition, a handful of cases were confirmed in state prisons. According to NBC DFW, the virus’ outbreak was “followed by demands to reduce the inmate populations by releasing, immediately and without bond or judicial delay, those held on misdemeanor crimes or awaiting trial on misdemeanor crimes. Some also called for non-violent felons to also be released on no-cost bonds.”
Abbott said Sunday that “releasing dangerous criminals makes the state even less safe” and issued a proclamation to prevent judges, and others, from releasing some inmates without a paid, cash bond.
In his executive order, Abbott declared that a person convicted of a crime that involved or threatened physical violence, or a person arrested for such a crime backed by probable cause, or a person with a criminal history of violent crime, cannot get out of jail on a no-cost personal recognizance bond.
With a PR bond, a defendant is released without having to post any money for his or her bond on the promise they’ll show up to their next court date.
Instead of virtue signaling and buying into the criminal justice reform movement’s desire to foment anarcho-tyranny, Abbott has held his ground by promoting public order.
A crisis like the Wuhan Virus pandemic does not need to be exacerbated by opening up the prison floodgates.
This is one case where American policymakers should use logic not emotion to craft prison policies in times of a pandemic.
Failure to do so will put the U.S. on the road to institutional failure.
