ACTION ALERT: Donald Trump’s Supreme Court Nomination

The question this evening is not whether or not Neil Gorsuch is an appropriate nominee for the vacant Supreme Court seat Donald Trump is attempting to fill. He is not. The question is whether or not Congressional Democrats will grow a back bone and do everything within their power to filibuster his appointment.

His name is Merrick Garland. He must have a confirmation hearing. We must not allow this travesty of justice and affront to America principles transpire without a fight.

Shame on House and Senate Republicans. Shame on Donald Trump.

CALL BOTH OF YOUR SENATORS NOW.

Lambda Legal’s Fair Courts Project conducted detailed research on Judge Gorsuch. Here is just a sampling of his offensive and regressive record, which could be particularly troubling for the LGBT community:

  • Judge Gorsuch’s opinion on the 10th Circuit Hobby Lobby decision is disqualifying. It set a terrible and destructive standard that employers should be allowed to meddle in our sex lives and decide whether or not birth control is covered by the company’s insurance plan.

    We absolutely must not confirm a Supreme Court nominee who has ruled that the religious beliefs and moral judgments of employers can be forced upon their employees. It is a short hop from restrictions on birth control to restrictions on the intimate relationships and health care needs of LGBT people.

  • Judge Gorsuch joined a 2015 opinion rejecting arguments made by an incarcerated transgender woman who was denied medically necessary hormone treatment and a request to wear feminine clothing.
  • Judge Gorsuch has expressed disapproval of civil rights impact litigation, writing in 2005 that “American liberals have become addicted to the courtroom … as the primary means of effecting their social agenda on everything from gay marriage” to other issues.
