APP Responds to Passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away yesterday after a long battle with cancer. She was 87 years old.
In response to the news, Terry Schilling, executive director of American Principles Project, released the following statement:
Firstly, I would like to extend my deepest condolences to the entire Ginsburg family during this time. As someone whose father is currently fighting cancer, I recognize the terrible toll of this disease on those who suffer from it and their loved ones, and I pray all those who were close to Justice Ginsburg find peace and comfort in the difficult days ahead.
Justice Ginsburg’s passing leaves a significant vacancy on the Supreme Court at a critical time for our nation. Given the likelihood of a contested election, it is paramount that the Supreme Court be at full strength to address whatever challenges may arise. The Senate has an obligation to urgently consider President Trump’s nomination to the Court once it is made, and we are confident they will do so.
We look forward in the coming weeks to helping confirm the best justice possible.
The battle over women’s sports also made its way into the news earlier this week when an American Principles Project PAC digital ad attacking Joe Biden and Democrats for supporting policies that would threaten women’s sports was removed from Facebook after a review by PolitiFact found it was “missing context.” You can read more about that story at The Federalist here.
