RNLA Submits Women's Leadership Letter in Support of the Supreme Court Nomination of Amy Coney Barrett

Earlier today, Senator Marsha Blackburn entered a letter into the congressional record from current and former women RNLA leadership supporting Judge Amy Coney Barrett's nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The letter highlights Judge Barrett's qualifications and condemns the attacks that have been leveled against Judge Barrett and her family:

As a highly successful woman judge, Judge Barrett is well positioned to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Like Justice Ginsburg, Judge Barrett would be an inspiration to young women lawyers and indeed young women in any walk of life. In addition to her record of achievement in her legal career, Judge Barrett is devoted to her family. She is both a wife and a mother of seven children.

We write not only to express our strong support for Judge Barrett but also to convey our deep concern about some of the vicious attacks leveled against her from the left. These include malicious statements about her religious views and about her and her husband’s adoption of two Haitian children. We urge you both to make clear that such attacks have no place during consideration of Judge Barrett’s nomination.
