Senate Confirms Two More Anti-Choice Judges to Lifetime Appointments

HeadlineSep 17, 2020

On Capitol Hill, Senate Republicans Wednesday confirmed two more of President Trump’s judicial nominees to lifetime appointments on the federal bench. David Dugan and Stephen McGlynn are both longtime opponents of reproductive freedoms, including the right to an abortion. Their confirmations came four months after the Democratic-controlled House passed the $3 trillion HEROES Act. Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has refused to schedule a vote on the coronavirus relief bill, calling it an “unserious liberal wish list.”
