D. James Kennedy Ministries today called on President Donald Trump and the U.S. Senate to fulfill their constitutional obligations to appoint and confirm a Supreme Court nominee to fill the vacancy on the court created by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Dr. Frank Wright, President and CEO of D. James Kennedy Ministries, made the following statement:
“The present vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court provides an historic opportunity to heal a grievous wound to the fabric of our national humanity. The High Court’s ruling in Roe v. Wade (1973) was cited at the time—even by some abortion supporters—as a grave constitutional error. From the perspective of basic humanity, the decision was even more deeply flawed in denying the personhood of the preborn child and eventually allowing abortionists to kill the preborn up to the moment of birth.
“Because of Roe, more than 60 million not-yet-born boys and girls have been dismembered, burned via saline solution, or starved and suffocated by chemical means. Now, not later, is the time for President Donald Trump to fill the vacancy created by Justice Ginsburg’s death with a nominee who will uphold the Constitution as originally written. And now is the time for the Senate to act with all deliberate speed to confirm that nominee.
“The voters who elected this president and this Senate deserve and ought to have their electoral will honored and upheld by a swift nomination and confirmation process. Pro-life Americans—and most especially the unborn whose blood cries from the ground for justice—have waited long enough for this opportunity to reverse Roe, a ruling with no basis in the U.S. Constitution.
“The President and the Senate were elected to lead and must now do their constitutional duty. Now, not after the election, is the time to act. That is why we urgently call on President Trump and the Senate to appoint and confirm a Supreme Court nominee who will follow the text and original intent of the Constitution. Now is the time to fill this Supreme Court vacancy with a jurist who will faithfully apply the Constitution and law as written—and without fear or favor.”
