On behalf of the National Women’s Law Center (the “Law Center”), I write in strong opposition to the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett as an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court. The Law Center fights for gender justice – in the courts, in public policy, and in society – working across the issues that are central to the lives of women and girls. The Center uses the law in all its forms to change culture and drive solutions to the gender inequity that shapes society and to break down the barriers that harm everyone – especially those who face multiple forms of discrimination. For more than 45 years, the Center has been on the leading edge of every major legal and policy victory for women.
The Law Center objects both to the illegitimate, partisan, and unsafe confirmation process that the Republican majority has put in place, and to the confirmation of a nominee who has demonstrated that she would eviscerate the fundamental liberties and core constitutional protections that women, and all Americans, rely on.
