Abortion Industry: Gorsuch Confirmation ‘Dark Day for Women’



In a continuation of its “war on women” narrative, the abortion industry says the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court is a “dark day for women” and will set back women’s right to abortion.

“He is the most far-right Supreme Court nominee in a generation, hand-picked by Donald Trump to help fulfill his campaign promise of overturning Roe v. Wade,” said Ilyse Hogue, president of abortion political advocacy organization NARAL Pro-Choice America, in a statement titled, “A Dark Day for Women and Families.”

Hogue added that Senate Republicans made the decision to “ram him through…by changing the rules instead of changing their unpopular nominee.”

History will not look kindly on these #GOP Senators, whose thirst for power led them to destroy 200 yrs of Senate tradition. #NuclearOption pic.twitter.com/b3moXVTeuv

Planned Parenthood tweeted that Gorsuch’s confirmation will take women “backwards.”

BREAKING: The Senate just confirmed Neil Gorsuch after changing the rules to do it. #WeObject to a #SCOTUS nominee who’ll take us backwards.

Having to change the rules to confirm Neil Gorsuch is an indication that he is too extreme for #SCOTUS: https://t.co/iMZxGTsQDw #StopGorsuch pic.twitter.com/clQQWiQSSk

Other leftist groups, such as UltraViolet and the Center for American Progress tweeted Gorsuch is a “massive threat to women” and a “vote to defund Planned Parenthood”:

#Gorsuch's sexist comments on maternity leave prove he's no moderate. Just a massive threat to women. https://t.co/ekfqMz06Bu #StopGorsuch

Planned Parenthood political action advocates in Arizona continued the narrative that women who do not “stand with Planned Parenthood” cannot be true supporters of women.

The issue is that you can’t have it both ways. @RepMcSally can't claim to be an ally for women w/o standing with PP. https://t.co/JOOdJoOVAM
