Nevada Right to Life commends President Trump’s nomination of an impressively well-qualified judge to the Supreme Court. Judge Barrett has demonstrated a commitment to defending the text and history of the Constitution and the principles of judicial restraint.
Amy Coney Barrett stands in stark contrast with the judicial-legislative activists who would be nominated by Joe Biden. Joe Biden has promised to impose a litmus test of his nominees and their support of Roe V. Wade.
Judge Barrett earned her J.D. summa cum laude from Notre Dame Law School, where she was first in her class and received the Hoynes Prize, the law school’s highest honor. She clerked for Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. Beginning in 2002, Barrett taught law at Notre Dame, and was named “Distinguished Professor of the Year” three times. In 2017, she was confirmed by the U.S. Senate to serve as a judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. She is married to Jesse Barrett, an Assistant United States Attorney and the couple has seven children.
