Today U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) spoke on the Senate floor in support of Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court. The Senate is scheduled to vote on final confirmation of Judge Barrett this evening.

Senator Hawley said, “The nomination of Amy Coney Barrett is truly historic. This is the most openly pro-life judicial nominee to the Supreme Court in my lifetime. This is an individual who has been open in her criticism of that illegitimate decision Roe v. Wade. This is a nominee who has been open about her faith and her faith commitments and the way she and her husband live their lives immersed in their Catholic faith and raise their children in their Catholic faith and want others to have the freedom to be able to do the same."

"And her nomination, and I anticipate her confirmation, tonight, in just a few hours on this floor, will show that there’s nothing wrong with any of that. In fact, people of faith should be welcome on the Supreme Court of the United States. People of Judge Barrett’s convictions should be welcome on the Supreme Court of the United States, and in just a few hours, in the vote of this body, we will confirm that that is indeed the case."
