Statement from M’Evie Mead, Director of Policy and Organizing Planned Parenthood Advocates in Missouri on the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to fill Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat on the Supreme Court: 

“Justice Ginsburg was a champion for justice, equality, and health care for all. It’s unconscionable, and an insult to her legacy and our democracy, that President Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Senators Blunt and Hawley are trying to fast-track a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court while much needed COVID-19 relief continues to stall in Congress and as Missourians continue to suffer. Our rights, our health care, and our futures are on the line. Donald Trump has promised to only appoint justices to the Supreme Court who would overturn Roe v. Wade and will 'do the right thing' on the Affordable Care Act by striking it down. We simply cannot trust Amy Coney Barrett, who has been an active and vocal threat to reproductive health care and openly critical of the ACA, to protect our health and rights.

“The U.S. Senate must not consider any nominee to replace Justice Ginsburg until after the inauguration in 2021. Planned Parenthood Advocates in Missouri will do all we can to fight this nomination. There is simply too much at stake.”
