(LifeSiteNews) – Within hours of Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer announcing his retirement, President Biden was front and center letting the nation know he would nominate black female to be the next Supreme Court Justice.

While I am not exactly certain why the president would have been so specific in his comment, it does occur to me that political chits sadly appear to be more important to this president than actual qualifications to sit as Supreme Court Justice. So, I would like to remind you of what it means to be a justice who sits on the highest court in the nation.

According to a published definition, “An associate justice on the Supreme Court of the United States is appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate; once confirmed, s/he has life tenure and can only be removed by impeachment or voluntary retirement.”

Nothing in this description leads one to believe that the actual gender or race of a particular Supreme Court nominee should be a defining factor, and yet Biden has already told us that indeed these are two of the elements that Biden will consider.

UPDATE 10/29/2021:

Joe Biden claims Pope Francis said he should continue receiving Holy Communion, despite the president's radical, anti-Catholic support for abortion. Biden asserted that the pontiff “was happy I’m a good Catholic,” and that the president should “keep receiving Communion.”

Please SIGN this urgent petition to Pope Francis urging him to clarify what he told Biden at his private audience in Rome. Biden should be facing formal excommunication because of his public and obstinate promotion of abortion, but instead we have the perverse situation in which he claims to have the blessing of the pope to sacrilegiously receive Our Lord in the Holy Eucharist. Pope Francis must clarify what exactly was said in order to avoid scandal and being complicit in such grave sin. If Joe Biden wishes to return to communion with the Church he must immediately and publicly stop and repent from his active support of the culture of death.

To ensure that this petition reaches Pope Francis, it will also be CC'ed to the Papal Nuncio of the United States, Archbishop Christophe Pierre, as well as to the Chairman of the Pro-Life Committee of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Archbishop Joseph Naumann.

Indeed, Joe Biden recently proposed a budget which would eliminate the Hyde Amendment, potentially allowing billions of taxpayer dollars to go to the funding of abortion domestically.

So, it is now an indisputable fact that Joe Biden, himself, is forcing abortion on the American public as well as around the world (e.g., Biden's executive order abolishing the Mexico City Policy).

However, since we know that the Church prioritizes abortion as the "pre-eminent" moral issue, and also how the pope has recently reiterated the teaching that abortion is "homicide," we ask the Pope to ensure that Biden's scandalous claim be clarified and his support for abortion be condemned.

This is the prime opportunity for the pope to make it crystal clear to Biden: Promoting abortion is absolutely and utterly incompatible with being in communion with the Church, and that those politicians who publicly and obstinately support abortion effectively put themselves outside communion with the Church, but also merit formal excommunication.

Joe Biden's active and concentrated promotion of abortion since he took office only 9 months ago is a grave scandal to the faithful of the United States, and to Catholics everywhere.

But, perhaps even more scandalous is the USCCB's decision not to directly and publicly address how Biden's radical, public promotion of abortion affects his standing in the Church.

The silence from our American shepherds is deafening.

Therefore, Pope Francis must now intervene to protect both the Holy Eucharist and our preborn brothers and sisters from death, to protect authentic Church teaching from deceitful "Catholics" like Joe Biden, and to protect the faithful from the grievous scandal caused by Biden's claims, action and the intolerable dithering and "dialoging" engaged in by the USCCB.

ORIGINAL PETITION:

Joe Biden is scheduled to meet Pope Francis in Rome in a rapidly approaching audience on October 29th.

Please SIGN this urgent petition to Pope Francis urging him to tell Biden that he will face formal excommunication because of his public and obstinate promotion of abortion, and that if he wishes to return to communion with the Church he must immediately and publicly stop and repent from his active support of the culture of death.

To ensure that this petition reaches Pope Francis, it will also be CC'ed to the Papal Nuncio of the United States, Archbishop Christophe Pierre, as well as to the Chairman of the Pro-Life Committee of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Archbishop Joseph Naumann.

Indeed, Joe Biden recently proposed a budget which would eliminate the Hyde Amendment, potentially allowing billions of taxpayer dollars to go to the funding of abortion domestically.

So, it is now an indisputable fact that Joe Biden, himself, is forcing abortion on the American public as well as around the world (e.g., Biden's executive order abolishing the Mexico City Policy).

But, reports suggest that the pope and Biden are only supposed to speak about COVID and climate change...

However, since we know that the Church prioritizes abortion as the "pre-eminent" moral issue, and also how the pope has recently reiterated the teaching that abortion is "homicide," we ask the Pope to ensure that Biden's scandalous support of abortion become the central focus of their meeting.

This is the prime opportunity for the pope to make it crystal clear to Biden: Promoting abortion is absolutely and utterly incompatible with being in communion with the Church, and that those politicians who publicly and obstinately support abortion effectively put themselves outside communion with the Church, but also merit formal excommunication.

Joe Biden's active and concentrated promotion of abortion since he took office only 9 months ago is a grave scandal to the faithful of the United States, and to Catholics everywhere.

But, perhaps even more scandalous is the USCCB's decision not to directly and publicly address how Biden's radical, public promotion of abortion affects his standing in the Church.

The silence from our American shepherds is deafening.

Therefore, Pope Francis must now intervene to protect our preborn brothers and sisters from death, to protect authentic Church teaching from deceitful "Catholics" like Joe Biden, and to protect the faithful from the grievous scandal caused by Biden's action and the intolerable dithering and "dialoging" engaged in by the USCCB.

But the one thing that we have not found in the media coverage about the selection the president will make is whether there are skills that actually qualify anyone to be a Supreme Court justice. We live in an age where the gender and/or political leanings of a particular candidate seem to be the only criteria that count, and that says a lot about the priorities of our nation’s elite.

But a brief examination of President Biden’s ideas of what justice looks like tells us all we need to know. As Biden tweeted,

“The constitutional right established in Roe v. Wade 49 years ago today is under assault as never before. We must recommit to strengthening access to reproductive care, defending the right established by Roe, and protecting the freedom of all people to build their own future.”


In other words, the idea of killing a preborn baby is nothing more than a question of “defending the right established by Roe” even though these are code words for killing babies before they are born. Biden’s words represent not only an approval of slaughter but yet another reminder that even when a man defines himself as Catholic, he can literally get away with verbal murder, as those who should call him to account look the other way.

In Biden’s world there is no justice for the most vulnerable among us. There are no efforts to protect the equal rights of every human being regardless of their age, health or condition of dependency. 

Nearly 40 years ago, when American Life League promoted and focused on those very words as contained in the Paramount Human Life Amendment, we knew there was only one way to save every single preborn baby! We knew we needed to amend the Constitution of our country to make it clear that no human being from his single cell stage onward should ever be intentionally killed, no matter what it might be called.

Yet here we are in 2022, not only confused about what it means to be just, but at a more fundamental level, confused about what justice even is or how it should be understood.

Until our nation stands up and defends just treatment for every innocent human being from his biological beginning onward, we will have murder, whether we call it abortion, termination or deadly assault – the result is a dead human being.

Mr. Biden, justice is color blind; justice stands equally for every innocent human being, born and preborn.

Judie Brown is the president and co-founder of American Life League
