Did Coney Barrett Call Roe a ‘Super-Precedent?’
Many are lashing out against the SCOTUS judges, accusing them of lying about wanting to overturn Roe at their hearings. Even though the decision has dropped, we must continue to keep the Justices in prayer.
From National Review. There are critics out in force today trying to portray the five justices in the Dobbs majority … as having misled the Senate in their confirmation hearings….
The most egregious claim now being circulated is that Amy Coney Barrett testified that Roe and Casey were “so well settled that no political actors and no people seriously push for their overruling….”
This is flatly false. Barrett was discussing the academic concept of “super-precedents” — a term used by scholars, but with no actual meaning in the courts — which she defined as cases that are “so well settled that no political actors and no people seriously push for their overruling.” … When asked by Amy Klobuchar whether Roe and Casey fit that definition, however, Barrett explicitly said they did not:…
Judge Barrett on Roe & super-precedent definition: "to define cases that are so well-settled that no political actors and no people seriously push for their overruling. And I'm answering a lot of question about Roe, which I think indicates that Roe doesn't fall in that category." pic.twitter.com/bmU3Xk4R8v
