Press Release:

Eagle Forum Applauds President Trump’s Consideration
of Amy Coney Barrett for Supreme Court

In light of the tremendous opportunity that has been presented to President Trump, Eagle Forum is thrilled that President Trump is considering a woman like Amy Coney Barrett to be his next nominee for the United States Supreme Court. Barrett is a mother of seven children, a devout woman of faith, and a principled defender of the Constitution. She is precisely the kind of role model our daughters need, and if President Trump nominates her, we will be celebrating another campaign promise fulfilled.

As a former clerk for the late Justice Antonin Scalia and a fundamental Constitutionalist, Judge Coney Barrett will ensure that our nation’s freedoms will be upheld. She understands the importance of family and holds life sacred. She would join three progressive female Supreme Court Justices, making her mark as the only female Constitutionalist.

Judge Coney Barrett once said in a commencement speech at Notre Dame, “Your legal career is but a means to an end, and that end is building the kingdom of God. If you can keep in mind that your fundamental purpose in life is not to be a lawyer, but to know, love, and serve God, you truly will be a different kind of lawyer.” After Democrats questioned her about these comments at a Congressional hearing for her current position at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit, she made her intentions clear that she will continue to protect the religious freedom of everyone.

Eagle Forum Chairman Anne Schlafly Cori said, “In a culture where feminism has painted a false narrative of women, Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination would be timely. She would continue to preserve our fundamental rights which would protect families for many years to come.”
