Today, handmaiden Amy Coney Barrett will be going before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Today is day 1 of a 4-day process, and the process is expected to be heated.
Barrett was nominated by Trump last month (shortly after Ruth Bader Ginsburg died. Apparently, Trump called Barrett personally, hours after RBG died, and told her that he is nominating her as RBG's successor), during a super-spreader coronavirus event.
Barrett is promising the committee, and the voters, that she will be an impartial Supreme Court Justice. In her opening remarks to the committee, she is planning on thanking Trump for the nomination. She is also expected to talk about how family prepared her for a "life of service, principle, faith, and love" (that doesn't sound impartial AT ALL). She is also expected to talk about how much she loves Antonin Scalia's policies, and how she "resolves to maintain that same perspective" as Scalia.
In a leaked draft of her opening statement, she says:
"In every case, I have carefully considered the arguments presented by the parties, discussed the issues with my colleagues on the court, and done my utmost to reach the result required by the law, whatever my own preferences might be. When I write an opinion resolving a case, I read every word from the perspective of the losing party. I ask myself how would I view the decision if one of my children was the party I was ruling against."
Not only is she reaching to appeal to parents by mentioning her children, she is telling on herself. She doesn't plan on being an impartial Supreme Court Justice. She plans on ruling by her own handmaiden rhetoric. By saying that she would view the decision if one of her children were the party she was ruling against, if her child was someone who beat up a member, or members of the LGBT community, her child would get off. They wouldn't be punished. Why? Because she is against the LGBT community.
When it comes to Roe V Wade, it is widely known that she plans on overturning the ruling that provided women safe and legal abortion options. I'm pretty sure she will also work on defunding Planned Parenthood, which provides MORE THAN just abortions. They also provide quality reproductive care to low-income women who do not have insurance. This includes STD/AIDs testing, pregnancy screenings, yearly check ups, and more. How do I know this? I used to be a patient at Planned Parenthood. When I couldn't get an OBGYN, I went to Planned Parenthood and paid for my checkups on a sliding scale.
As for her religion, Barrett belongs to a Christian-Catholic cult called "People of Praise." The members of this cult "swear a lifelong oath of loyalty, called a covenant, to one another, and are assigned and are accountable to a personal adviser, called a ‘head’ for men and a ‘handmaid’ (now woman leader) for women."
These women are reduced down to slaves of men, as men are seen as the "authority of the household." Amy Coney Barrett's family has very deep ties to this cult, and Amy Coney Barrett's father is a deacon in this cult. The cult also believes in arraigned marriage.
Barrett is a dangerous choice for Supreme Court Justice. Women have made some great strides in women's rights and feminism. If she is appointed as Supreme Court Justice, women's rights will go backward about 70+ years.
We deserve better than this.
