Planned Parenthood orders ‘Personal Liberty Standard’ for Trump SCOTUS nominee

In The News

Planned Parenthood has called for a special “personal liberty standard” to be used on President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee when they appear before the Senate for Confirmation.

Appearing at a press conference, Planned Parenthood vice president Dawn Laguens said:

“Clearly, saying ‘precedent’ alone can no longer be an acceptable answer or standard by which senators can accurately judge.”

Laguens continued by calling on the Senate to only confirm a justice who will declare their belief that the constitution protects the right of all people to make personal decisions about their bodies. Laguens further stressed the importance of confirming a justice who believes the constitution protects the right to have an abortion:

That’s why today, Planned Parenthood and our colleagues at this press conference, are calling for a higher standard. We are calling for a “personal liberty standard,” that the Senate must only confirm a justice who affirmatively declares that they believe the Constitution protects individual liberty and the right of all people to make personal decisions about their bodies and their personal relationships, including the right to use contraception, the right to have an abortion, and the freedom to marry who you choose.

Planned Parenthood recently published a press statement on their website declaring their recent announcement of the ‘special standard’ “comes after President Trump promised to appoint only biased justices who will overturn Roe V. Wade.”

Further, Planned Parenthood has said it will be launching a campaign in all 50 states “demanding that any nominee be held to this higher standard or not confirmed at all.”

Trump will announce his Supreme Court nominee on Monday.
