Schumer response to Breyer retirement ominous for unborn
Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer will retire after more than 27 years on the nation’s highest court. Breyer is a pro-abortion stalwart who has always been on the pro-abortion side in any legal battles over pro-life legislation.
His retirement paves the way for Joe Biden to appointment a replacement, who will almost assuredly be a liberal abortion advocate who would vote to keep Roe v. Wade and 63 million abortions in place.
Breyer will step down from the Supreme Court at the end of the current term, according to people familiar with his thinking. He is currently one of the three liberal justices, along with Elana Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor. His replacement would maintain the current 6-3 split between conservative and liberal justices.
At 83, Breyer is the court’s oldest member. Liberal activists have urged him for months to retire so Biden can name, and a Democrat-run Senate can confirm, his replacement. They were upset that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg stayed on the court for years longer than she could have — and should have allowed Barack Obama to name her replacement.
In response, Democrat leader Chuck Schumer said of the Breyer retirement, that the Senate will confirm Biden’s expected Supreme Court nominee “with all deliberate speed.”
Kristan Hawkins, the president of Students for Life, told LifeNews she’s certain pro-abortion groups are excited at the opportunity to get one of their own on the high court.
“Justice Breyer’s retirement is just what the predatory Corporate Abortion political operation has been dreaming about, as their entire model is focused on abusing the courts to take what the voters won’t give – abortion up to birth,” she said.
And another pro-life group has already said it will likely oppose Biden’s nominee.
