Planned Parenthood hates the fact that President Trump has nominated pro-life judges to the judiciary. His latest, Wendy Vitter, a strong pro-life advocate, got a personal shout-out from the abortion conglomerate on Twitter.
Vitter has been nominated for a seat on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana and will be confirmed for the post by the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. Sure enough, Planned Parenthood has been lobbying against Vitter, decrying that she would be "disastrous" for abortion.
“Wendy Vitter may just be Trump’s worst judicial nominee so far — and if you’ve been paying attention, you know that’s really saying something,” Planned Parenthood Vice President Dawn Laguens wrote in a letter to supporters. “Unless we stop her confirmation, she could enforce her extreme, anti-abortion views as law, endangering our health and rights and putting lives at risk.”
Laguens went on to hilariously characterize abortion as a "basic healthcare service."
“Her abhorrent views on reproductive rights and Planned Parenthood have no place on the bench,” Laguens continued. “She’s spoken at anti-abortion rallies, led anti-abortion panels, and represented organizations that have tried to undermine access to basic health care services.”
Here are some of Vitter's previous pro-life efforts that LifeNews profiled:
Though bad news for Planned Parenthood, Vitter’s nomination provides hope for pro-life advocates and, most importantly, unborn babies and mothers.
For years, Vitter has been leading efforts to protect unborn babies and moms from abortion; she even received an award from Louisiana Right to Life for her outstanding service.
She has presented workshops about abortion risks ('fake science,' according to Planned Parenthood, because apparently there are no abortion risks), supported abortion clinic regulations, protested the construction of a giant new abortion facility, attended the March for Life with her family and more.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) attempted to set a religious litmus test for nominees to the judiciary when she attacked Notre Dame professor Amy Barrett about her Catholic faith. “The dogma lives loudly within you,” Feinstein told Barrett, who was recently confirmed to serve on the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in Chicago.
