President Trump Takes Bob Casey to Task

By Maria  Gallagher, Legislative Director

Pro-life President Donald Trump took Democratic U.S. Senator Bob Casey to task for failing to support Supreme Court nominees.

At a packed rally in Wilkes-Barre Thursday, the President noted that Casey vowed to oppose his Supreme Court pick–even before the name of the nominee had been released.

Previously, Casey–who has an 80 percent pro-abortion voting record–opposed Judge Neil Gorsuch for the High Court. This, despite Gorsuch’s stellar record and qualifications.

Now, Casey is standing squarely against eminently qualified Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court. In sharp contrast, Pennsylvania’s other U.S. Senator, Republican Pat Toomey, supported both Gorsuch and Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh is a strict constructionist who has vowed to refrain from making laws from the bench. He is dedicated to the principle of preserving the Constitution, and not reading into it “rights” which do not appear there.

Barletta, Casey a Study in Contrasts

The two Pennsylvania candidates vying for the U.S. Senate this year are a study in contrasts, as far as their positions on the life issues are concerned. Congressman Lou Barletta, a Republican, has a 100 percent pro-life voting record. He supports a ban on taxpayer funding of organizations that perform abortions, such as the abortion giant Planned Parenthood. He supported the Supreme Court nominations of strict constructionists Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. He also supported the repeal of anti-life Obamacare.

Meanwhile, Senator Bob Casey, a Democrat, has an 80 percent pro-abortion voting record. He opposes a ban on taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood. He also opposed the Supreme Court nominations of Gorsuch and Cavanaugh. In addition, he opposed the repeal of the anti-life Obamacare health care plan.

Pennsylvania voters will head to the polls Nov. 6.



Bob Casey Disappoints Constituents–Again

By Maria Gallagher, Legislative Director

Democratic U.S. Senator Bob CBob Caseyasey of Pennsylvania has disappointed his constituents yet again.

The politician, who has an 80 percent pro-abortion voting record according to the National Right to Life scorecard, decided to oppose pro-life President Donald Trump’s nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court–even before the nominee was named.

Without a single hearing, Casey said he would not support the nominee “because it represents a corrupt bargain with the far right, big corporations, and Washington special interests.”

Casey’s statement is factually incorrect. Judge Brett Kavanaugh is a well-respected jurist who has pledged to interpret the Constitution as it is written. He has promised to be independent, so he can hardly be considered a puppet of special interests.

Casey has disappointed his constituents time and time again. He opposed Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court, despite the judge’s stellar judicial record. Casey also blindly supports Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion operation.

In contrast, Casey’s Republican opponent, Congressman Lou Barletta, supported both Gorsuch and Kavanaugh. He also supports a ban on taxpayer funding of organizations, such as Planned Parenthood, which perform abortions.

Yet, again, Pennsylvania citizens are being reminded that Casey stands in stark contrast to his father, the late Governor Robert Casey, Sr., whose principled and unwavering pro-life stand inspired people around the nation.

The Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation Political Action Committee has announced it is joining with the National Right to Life PAC in endorsing Republican Congressman Lou Barletta for the U.S. Senate. Congressman Barletta has a 100 percent pro-life voting record and has worked hard to save tax dollars from the abortion industry.  He faces Democratic Senator Bob Casey, who has an 85 percent pro-abortion voting record and who supports continued taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion operation. Congressman Barletta is pictured above with pro-life advocates from Scranton, Pennsylvania.





Bad News–Nomination of Pro-Abortion Judge Will Proceed

We thank all of you who called Senator Bob Casey’s office, urging him to vote against cloture on the nomination of Judge Andrew Hurwitz for the 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals. Unfortunately, Senator Casey–along with 59 other Senators–voted for cloture, and so his nomination moves ahead. Hurwitz has been called the “Architect of Roe v. Wade” for his work as a legal clerk on a Connecticut case which set the stage for Roe. It is apparent that Hurwitz is a judicial activist who will try to impose his radical ideology on the federal appellate court.  For more on this story, go here.
