It's bye-bye to pro-abortion judges, Planned Parenthood

gavel with Lady of JusticeAs a result of the elections last week, Planned Parenthood may have to rethink its strategy.

The abortion business has a huge political slush fund available to use in elections to gain victory for pro-abortion candidates to protect the organization and to fight against those who strive to defund it in Congress. But as Jim Sedlak of American Life League points out, Planned Parenthood has in the last decade relied on the courts and "friendly judges" to force its will on people.

"A lot of this has to do with the fact that President [Barack] Obama was in place for eight years and appointed a lot of federal judges at the district court level, at the appellate court level – and of course [two] at the Supreme Court level," he explains.

Sedlak says Planned Parenthood has relied on those judges – all who have a "progressive" bent and some who are judicial activists – to ward off legal challenges and protect it from its enemies. But now, says the pro-life spokesman, President Donald Trump is appointing conservative judges.

Sedlak, Jim (American Life League)"Over his first two years in office, Trump has been able to get a total of 82 judges who he nominated [to be] approved by the Senate – 29 of [whom are] on the courts of appeal," he notes. In addition, two of the nine Supreme Court justices are Trump appointees.

Following last week's midterms, the Republican majority in the Senate is solid – and it is that body that signs off on judicial appointees.

So Sedlak says the good news out of the midterm elections is that President Trump can go full speed ahead on appointing conservative, pro-life judges, which the ALL executive director says should weaken Planned Parenthood's strategy to shop for liberal judges to support its cause.
