Senator Elizabeth Warren has quoted the Bible in a scathing attack against President Trump’s latest Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.
The fiercely pro-abortion Democrat argued that Kavanaugh has a track record of ruling in favor of large corporations when they have come up against employees and workers in court. “Corporations have won 62 percent of the cases they’ve been in whenever they are up against workers, shareholders, people who represent the public interest,” Warren said at a press conference on Capitol Hill July 24, according to the Washington Times.
“This moment is crystalized in Matthew 25,” she added, seeking to emphasize the innate value that should be placed on each and every human life,
Matthew 25: 34-40 reads:
The King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
“It is not enough to have a good heart … we are called to act,” Warren declared. “We are on the moral side of history.”
One cannot shake the incredible hypocrisy found in Warren’s words when considering her position on abortion: simply put, she is all for it. The liberal senator has been an outspoken critic of those who have sought to protect the rights of the unborn as inalienable and precious. At the start of the year, she opposed calls for a Republican-sponsored 20-week abortion ban, labeling it “unconstitutional” and arguing that it “would put women’s lives and women’s health at risk.”
“Government officials ought to listen to women whose lives are on the line,” she added in a series of cutting remarks delivered on the Senate floor.
Judge Brett Kavanaugh is a staunch pro-lifer, though he has stopped short of saying that he’d advocate overturning the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling. In his 2006 confirmation hearing to become a circuit judge, he said: “If confirmed to the D.C. Circuit, I would follow Roe v. Wade faithfully and fully. That would be binding precedent of the court,” before adding, “it’s been decided by the Supreme Court.”
When pushed for his personal opinion on the 1973 ruling which effectively legalized abortion nationwide, he said that the Supreme Court had upheld Roe “repeatedly” and insisted it would not be “appropriate” to disclose his personal opinion.
“71% of Americans — a majority of Democrats, Independents, AND Republicans — support Roe v. Wade. But this landmark ruling could be overturned if Trump’s
#SCOTUS pick, Brett Kavanaugh, gets confirmed,” Sen. Warren tweeted yesterday.
But Carrie Severino, chief counsel for the conservative Judicial Crisis Network, vehemently disagreed with the assertions of Sen. Warren, arguing that Kavanaugh was a fair and objective judge with impeccable credentials. “Radically liberal Senators such as Warren and Booker don’t want judges and justices,” she said. “They want liberal activist politicians who will impose their leftist political agenda from the bench.”
While the date for Kavaughnah’s confirmation hearing has yet to be firmed up, Politico reported that the Judge “formally returned a 110-page questionnaire along with more than 2,000 pages of accompanying material to the Senate Judiciary Committee” last Friday, which supposedly brings him much closer to the vital hearing.
