WASHINGTON D.C. — It’s official, federal appellate judge Amy Coney Barrett is President Trump’s nomincation to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the United States’ Supreme Court.
Barrett is a proven conservative with strong views on abortion that many Democratic senators and liberal advocates oppose, warning that she could roll back abortion rights and invalidate the Affordable Care Act.
In addition, Barrett has demonstrated her conservative bona fides on Second Amendment gun rights and immigration.
Should Barrett be confirmed before Election Day or shortly thereafter, one of her earliest cases would be on the latest Obamacare challenge. The court is scheduled to hear that case on November 10.
