New York – Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today called on the U.S. Senate to confirm President Donald Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch.
“The last election was, more than any other single issue, about the Supreme Court,” said Fr. Pavone. “The American people voted to have Donald Trump select the next justice and he has made an excellent choice. Today should begin a swift confirmation process for Judge Neil Gorsuch, whom everyone agrees is eminently qualified.”
Senate Judiciary Committee hearings begin today on Judge Gorsuch’s confirmation. He is expected to make an opening statement today, followed by questioning from the Senate panel this week. The Administration hopes to have Judge Gorsuch confirmed by early April so that he can hear the remaining oral arguments in the Supreme Court’s current term.
“Judge Gorsuch will be an excellent addition to the Supreme Court, which desperately needs his sound judgment and vast experience,” added Fr. Pavone. “The Senate should act quickly to approve him.”
