ADF president on confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to US Supreme Court
The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom President and CEO Michael Farris regarding Monday’s Senate confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett as the newest member of the U.S. Supreme Court:
“On behalf of Alliance Defending Freedom, I want to congratulate Justice Amy Coney Barrett, the newest member of the U.S. Supreme Court and only the fifth female justice to serve on that bench. The American people count on our courts to apply the laws as written, not engage in judicial policymaking. In her confirmation process, Justice Barrett expressed a strong commitment to this important principle, and both conservatives and liberals described her as smart, honorable, and fair-minded. We are hopeful that she with other justices will uphold Americans’ fundamental freedoms, including free speech, religious freedom, parental rights, and the right to life from conception to natural death.”
Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.
