On July 26, 2020, Missouri Senator Josh Hawley announced that he would only support a U.S. Supreme Court justice who believes that the Roe v. Wade decision is unconstitutional.
This 1973 decision determined that abortion access was part of a constitutional right to privacy.
“I will vote only for those Supreme Court nominees who have explicitly acknowledged that Roe v. Wade is wrongly decided. By explicitly acknowledged, I mean on the record and before they were nominated,” said to The Washington Post.
“I don’t want private assurances from candidates. 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,” he continued. “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.”
Hawley has yet to vote on a Supreme Court justice since he was elected in 2018.
Hawley’s remarks came a month following a 5-4 ruling that struck down a Louisiana abortion law. Pro-life and pro-abortion activists saw this case as a major stress test of the Roe v. Wade precedent established since Justice Brett Kavanaugh was nominated in 2018.
Chief Justice John Roberts, who was appointed by George W. Bush, casted the swing vote in the ruling. He also played a crucial swing vote role in cases involving the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and gender and sexual orientation discrimination.
Hawley used to clerk for Roberts. In his 2005 confirmation hearing, Roberts said that the 1973 case was “settled as a precedent of the court.”
“This standard, for me, applies to Supreme Court nominees, whether they’re a sitting judge or whatever,” Hawley stated. “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.”
On the court, there are no vacancies at the moment. Though Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg revealed earlier this month that she is receiving chemotherapy treatments. Some White House officials floated the idea of Justice Clarence Thomas retiring. However, Thomas denied any plans to do so in 2019.
Conservatives have largely been disappointed by the current wave of Supreme Court decisions and are now anxious for Senators to actually follow through and vote for solid justices.
VIDEO: America First PAC Defends Marjorie Greene and Rips Her Swamp Opponent a New One
Congressional candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene is going on offense against her Republican rival John Cowan.
Greene is currently running in Georgia’s 14th congressional district and will be facing off against Cowan during a runoff election on August 11.
Drain the DC Swamp PAC, a conservative PAC that promotes America First candidates, recently posted several messages on FB in favor of Greene.
On August 4, 2020, the PAC posted “We fully endorse Marjorie Taylor Greene for Congress for Congress and call on all patriots in Northwest Georgia to turn out for her and VOTE on August 11th. She is pro-Trump and conservative. Our nation is under attack by godless socialists who hate America and we need a fighter in Congress who will stop them. These same socialists are trying to vote in the primary to stop Marjorie Greene. We must not let that happen! Vote Marjorie Greene to save America from the radical left!”
A few days later, the PAC page attacked Cowan by declaring that “John Cowan is the SWAMP and is backed by the SWAMP.”
John Cowan is the SWAMP and is backed by the SWAMP. He won’t stand up to the socialists. He is OK with renaming our great Georgia military bases – Fort Benning and Fort Stewart. Fort Benning trains the US Army Infantry, Airborne, and Rangers. Fort Stewart is the home of the prestigious 3rd Infantry Division.These two bases trained and deployed America’s combat soldiers all throughout the world and they are the same bases who trained the fighting men who won two world wars.Vote AGAINST sellout John Cowan.
The PAC called on voters in Georgia’s 14th district to vote against Cowan “or he will sell out to the socialists.”
Drain the DC Swamp PAC is an organization that promotes conservative policies such as “protecting life to protecting our borders, we support those who fight for traditional values, our Constitution, and our Country.”
The PAC also supports “President Trump’s vision of a government of, by, and for the people. We believe the people have the right to know what their government is doing, and support leaders who aren’t afraid to hold it accountable.”
This is one race America First champions cannot ignore.
