Leading pro-life groups quickly responded to Joe Biden’s pro-abortion Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson, who he is expected to nominate soon.

Biden will nominate Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court to replace retiring pro-abortion Justice Stephen G. Breyer. The nomination fulfills Biden’s much-criticized pledge to only nominate a black woman to the Supreme Court without considering more qualified candidates who are men or of some other race.

Top pro-life advocates say the nation’s highest court doesn’t need another justice who incorrectly thinks there is a right to abortion in the Constitution.

Marjorie Dannenfelser of the Susan B. Anthony List told LifeNews: “Joe Biden is fulfilling his promise to only appoint justices who support the Roe v. Wade regime of abortion on demand up to birth – a policy so extreme only a handful of countries in the world hold it, including North Korea and China.”

“Ketanji Brown Jackson is backed by many of America’s most radical pro-abortion groups. She is on record opposing the free speech rights of pro-life advocates pleading to save lives outside abortion centers and supporting the false claim that abortion is ‘health care.’ We have no doubt she will work with the most pro-abortion administration in history to enshrine abortion on demand nationwide in the law,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser,” she added.

Dannenfelser continued: “With the Court’s decision in Dobbs expected this summer, the stakes have never been higher in the fight to protect unborn children and their mothers and let the people decide this issue through their elected representatives, not unelected judges. The overwhelming majority of Americans reject the Democrats’ extreme agenda that includes late-term abortions when unborn children can feel pain, dismemberment abortions, lethal discrimination abortions, and more. In this critical election year, SBA List will work tirelessly to ensure that voters remember this when they go to the polls and that abortion extremists face political consequences.”

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, told LifeNews: “We strongly oppose the nomination of this extremist to the Supreme Court, but did not expect anything better from the Democrats. Judges are not supposed to invent rights that are not found in the text, structure or history of the U.S. Constitution. We urge all citizens to communicate with their U.S. Senators starting today to ask them to vote against this nominee.”

Jeanne Mancini, President of the March for Life Education and Defense Fund, told LifeNews she also opposes the nomination.

“March for Life opposes President Biden’s anticipated nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson for the United States Supreme Court based on her record of judicial activism. We expect her to be a reliable vote for the far left and the Biden administration’s radical abortion agenda,” she said.

Mancini added: “Consider the widespread national division and millions of unborn lives lost as a result of one activist decision in Roe v. Wade. Every American – born and unborn – deserves equal protection under the law. We urge the Members of the Senate to stand for our nation’s mothers and most vulnerable unborn by rejecting this extreme nominee, and we encourage the nomination of a judge who will honor our Constitution and the right to life.”

Leading pro-abortion groups love Jackson, saying she would vote to “uphold” the radical Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that allowed virtually unlimited abortions and has resulted in killing more than 63 million unborn babies.

In addition to his racist and sexist pledge, Biden has previously indicated that he will only appoint to the Supreme Court nominees who fully support abortion and believe in the completely made up and fictional right to abortion that does not actually exist in the Constitution. That makes it clear Jackson will be a reliable pro-abortion vote on the high court at a time when it is considering overturning Roe.

Judge Jackson currently serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, arguably the second most powerful court in the nation. It has history been the springboard for future Supreme Court justices, Chief Justice John Roberts, Justices Thomas and Kavanaugh, and the late Justice Ginsburg all served on the top appellate court.

Jackson has no record when it comes to abortion cases, but the pro-abortion group NARAL, which supports abortions up to birth and financed at taxpayer expenses, loves her.

After the Senate confirmed Jackson to the D.C. Circuit, NARAL released a statement saying, “We applaud the Senate’s confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. Her confirmation to the D.C. Circuit brings us one step closer to a judiciary that better represents the diversity of our nation and one that will uphold our most fundamental rights and freedoms — including reproductive freedom.”

There is no right to abortion in the Constitution, but Justice Breyer consistently ruled for abortion in every case. The only good news for the pro-life movement is that Judge Jackson or Breyer’s eventual replacement will not change the current makeup of the Supreme Court on abortion.
