HeadlineMay 17, 2019

The U.S. Senate has confirmed Louisiana lawyer Wendy Vitter as a federal district court judge. Vitter has spoken frequently at anti-abortion rallies and has worked for years to defund Planned Parenthood; she once told the New Orleans Clarion Herald that Planned Parenthood “kills over 150,000 females a year.” Vitter has also falsely linked abortions to breast cancer.
