Action Alert! Insist on A Prompt, Positive Confirmation Vote for Judge Neil Gorsuch
   Friday, March 24, 2017   at   2:21 PM

Confirmation hearings in the U.S. Senate this week represent a critical time for the Supreme Court and our nation, and have only confirmed for us our initial instinct that Judge Neil Gorsuch is an outstanding choice to succeed the late Justice Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court. Judge Gorsuch is exceedingly qualified and embraces the Constitution and the rule of law.

We understand concerns that others have raised on specific issues, including critical questions surrounding the sanctity of human life and the importance of religious freedom. But Judge Gorsuch has made it profoundly clear that, on the high court, he would be a judge — someone who interprets the law, without using the office to create new law to achieve a preferred political result. That’s what we’ve long asked for from the men and women who serve in the federal judiciary, and that tells us Judge Gorsuch is eminently qualified to sit on the high court.

It is time for this confirmation process to move forward. CMC urges the U.S. Senate to promptly confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court. You can join us by clicking here to send an email to your state’s U.S. Senators, urging their "yes" vote on the judge.

In this week’s hearings, Gorsuch has demonstrated both a quick wit and compassion for the ordinary people whose lives are impacted by federal court decisions. And he seems to understand the structure of the federal government better than many of those who have been asking him questions. Consistently, according to news reports, Judge Gorsuch has drawn a bright line between the proper role of the federal bench and the constitutionally assigned function of the legislative branch. That understanding represents a minimum qualification for a judge, to our way of thinking, and it’s reassuring to see Gorsuch’s affirmation of that principle.

As a result of what we’ve seen and read from this week’s proceedings, we believe Judge Gorsuch decides the cases that come before him based on an interpretation of the law, based on the commonly understood meaning of the Founding Fathers’ intent when they ratified the Constitution. That may mean, somewhere down the line, Justice Gorsuch may be the deciding vote in a case that goes against our interests in protecting life, family, marriage or religious liberties.

We believe that’s worth any risk that accompanies a confirmation in this case. A high view of the Constitution, which Judge Gorsuch obviously holds, is remarkably consistent with the values we’ve been fighting for since CMC was founded in 2004. We’re convinced that Judge Gorsuch will be on our side far more often than he won’t be, and that’s a refreshing change from previous Supreme Court nominees.

The Senate should put partisan differences aside — especially the ridiculous notion that the seat rightfully belongs to another candidate — and cast a confirmation vote based on the qualifications of the nominee. If senators base their vote on qualifications rather than partisanship, we believe Judge Gorsuch would be confirmed overwhelmingly.
