From NARAL -

Right-wing news magazines, the grassroots of the anti-choice movement, and even anti-choice elected officials are launching outrageous attacks with words like "ethical depravity" and "deranged" to describe a nationally acclaimed constitutional scholar nominated by President Obama to a post at the Department of Justice.


The nominee is Prof. Dawn Johnsen, and along with fellow nominees Judge David Hamilton and Gov. Katheleen Sebelius, she's being attacked by anti-choice senators simply because she's pro-choice. Some senators are even threatening a filibuster to block Johnsen and Hamilton.

Write your senators today to fight anti-choice senators' attempts to block these highly qualified nominees.

We must call on the U.S. Senate to confirm Judge Hamilton for a federal appeals court judgeship; Gov. Sebelius as secretary of Health and Human Services; and Prof. Johnsen, a former legal director for NARAL Pro-Choice America, for a post at the Justice Department without the delays of back-room politics and sneaky maneuvers.

The use of the "f" word – filibuster – when referring to any of these nominees is unacceptable. We won't let this threat go unanswered. We must make it clear to our senators that derailing nominees for critical positions in the Obama administration and in the federal courts is not an option.

We will keep up the pressure until we go "three for three" and see these distinguished, well-qualified nominees confirmed by the Senate. Make sure your senators hear it from you: "Confirm Hamilton, Sebelius, and Johnsen without delay."

Anti-choice groups only have to block one of these nominations to score a major victory toward their pledge to wage "guerilla warfare" on a woman's right to choose.1 We must win every single time. Help us go "three for three" on this first test. Take action today.
