A Justice Barrett wouldn't be abortion's doom

Say no to abortionThe possible confirmation of a new U.S. Supreme Court justice is rattling abortion proponents, but one pro-lifer says their concerns are a bit exaggerated.

In a recent op-ed for Newsweek magazine, abortionist and author Jenn Conti argues that confirming Amy Coney Barrett to the court would "end abortion care as we know it."

Eric Scheidler of the Pro-Life Action League says in other words, Conti's opinion is Barrett's confirmation would severely damage efforts to provide abortions.

"I only wish that abortionist Jenn Conti were right, that the nomination and confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett would quickly lead to an end of so-called 'abortion care,'" he tells OneNewsNow. "That is to say the violent destruction of innocent, fragile, beautiful children in the womb through abortion."

But in reality, if Roe v. Wade is overturned, the pro-lifer says it will take just the right case for the court to consider, and that might be years away. Even so, Barrett's nomination has caused so much consternation among abortionists and abortion proponents.

Scheidler, Eric (Pro-Life Action League)"That they're concerned about Amy Coney Barrett is just one more mark in her favor," Scheidler decides. "We certainly want to see the Supreme Court be more open to the kinds of common-sense regulations that the vast majority of Americans support, like bans on late-term abortion or bans on mandated taxpayer funding of abortion."

That is what polls have revealed to be true.

If Roe v. Wade is eventually overturned, however, it is not doom and gloom for abortion, as that would simply leave it up to the individual states to determine their own policies.
