BOIS: Amy Coney Barrett Is The Justice We Need Right Now

"The dogma lives loudly within you"

America has been given a chance to correct course on the disaster that was the 20th century — the deadliest in all of human history, carried by two world wars, the rise and fall of the most wicked ideology invented by man, and lastly, the moral scourge of abortion.

In the 40-plus years since the Supreme Court enshrined abortion as an inalienable right afforded under the constitution, Western civilization has been tearing apart at the seams, as it should. When a civilization cannot properly answer the most fundamental of human questions — the value of life itself — it is only natural that the civilization devolves into a collective insanity. It is only natural that after denying the humanity of an innocent child in the womb, everything else falls subject to scrutiny: sexuality, gender differences, marriage, the family itself, etc. If life has no meaning, then nothing has meaning.

This is why the Supreme Court must reverse Roe v. Wade at the first opportunity and without hesitation. While it is true that abortion will then go to the states and not be erased entirely, for the first time in nearly 50 years, the pro-abortion Left will be unable to say "constitutional right" and "abortion" in the same sentence. For the first time, Democrats will have to go on record, free of any shield, and say explicitly that they support the wholesale slaughter of innocent children. Governors, senators, Congressional candidates will be forced to defend their indefensible position from the podiums; no longer able to fall back on "the Supreme Court said so" excuse.

Who better to bring about this day of reckoning than Seventh Circuit Judge Amy Coney Barrett, whom we all remember as the Trump appointee that Sen. Dianne Feinstein deemed unfit to serve based on her Catholic faith. "The dogma lives loudly within you," Feinstein famously uttered at Barrett's confirmation hearing. At that moment, Barrett became the face of all religious Americans in this hostile culture, and that face must be represented on the bench of America's highest court.

Conservatives have much to hope for in a Barrett confirmation and much to gain by her tenure. For one thing, she would be the perfect counter to the three female Justices: Ginsburg, Kagan, and Sotomayor; all leftists in their own right, all appointed by Democrats. Since Roe v. Wade, the so-called feminists have crafted a careful narrative that a strong woman equals hating children to the point of infanticide. Barrett, a mother of seven and faithful Catholic, would be the perfect antithesis of that. For once, our young girls will be able to look upon a powerful, accomplished woman in American government who promotes harmony between the sexes over rivalry and defends the most innocent among us.

An Amy Coney Barrett nomination will also give conservatives their first reliable female originalist, a role that Reagan-appointee Sandra Day O'Connor failed to uphold. Lastly, and perhaps most obviously, the repeal of Roe v. Wade should include a woman's voice, not because men cannot decide upon it (they most certainly can and should), but having a woman like Barrett as the deciding vote would put a serious dent in the feminists crying "patriarchy!" as they march down Pennsylvania Ave. in their "Handmaid's Tale" costumes in protest.

Imagine the majority opinion repealing Roe v. Wade being written by an actual woman. The feminists will have only the Twitter feeds of Cecile Richards and Debra Messing to keep them company.

Please, Mr. President, nominate Amy Coney Barrett and let her live loudly on the Supreme Court.
