Appointed Judge of the U.S. Supreme Court Amy Coney Barrett. Barrett, 48, will replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died of pancreatic cancer in September. With the appointment, the Conservatives have an even stronger 6-3 superiority in the Supreme Court.
The U.S. Supreme Court consists of a total of nine judges appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate. Barrett’s lifetime status is the highest possible, because in American jurisprudence, the Supreme Court has a significant right to shape the country’s legislation.
“Everything Ginsburg objected to”
Where Ginsburg, the predecessor of the Catholic Barrett, was known for his liberal values, Barrett is thus strongly conservative in value. Indeed, the appointment is said to destroy Ginsburg’s life’s work as well as his legacy left under U.S. law.
With the appointment, the Liberals, for example, fear that the 1972 Roe v. Wade decision and the right to abortion guaranteed to women will be overturned.
– Barrett represents everything that Ruth Bader Ginsburg opposed, Senator Chuck Schumer said earlier.
Democrats have criticized President Donald Trump for pushing through the nomination ahead of next week’s presidential election.
