Another Bad Judicial Nominee!
The Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to vote on Andrew David Hurwitz, Nominee for the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals tomorrow.
Who is Mr. Hurwitz?
1.) He acted as a key author of abortion court decisions that were eventually relied upon by the US Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade. Hurwitz claims that these pro abortion decisions influenced the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe and Hurwitz makes it clear that he is very proud of his role in these pro-abortion decisions.
2.) Hurwitz refused to answer the questions of Senators Grassley and Sessions regarding his role in the pro-abortion decision, even though he previously wrote about and praised it.
3.) He served as pro bono as lead counsel in the Arizona Supreme Court case of Ring v. Arizona which struck down their death penalty sentencing scheme as unconstitutional and also invalidated several other states’ statutes as well.
4.) According to Hurwitz Constitutional Rights such as ‘right to privacy’ can be created by judges.

FYI: In the Senate vote for confirmation of liberal Jesse Furman as the United States District Judge for the Southern District of New York — Senator Casey voted ‘Yea” and Senator Toomey voted “Nay.’ Click here for roll call. Click here for more info on Furman.
Neither of Pennsylvania’s Senators are on the Senate Judiciary Committee, however we need to make this a matter of prayer that this radial nominee will be stopped in committee tomorrow.
