Ayanna Pressley wrote ( about Amy Coney Barrett ) : “First of all, there should be no nomination and absolutely no confirmation until after the Presidential inauguration. This is a rushed process and any candidate will no doubt be inadequately vetted and unqualified for a lifetime appointment to the highest court. Barrett’s long history of anti-choice, anti-LGBTQ, and anti-immigrant statements and decisions make her fundamentally unfit to serve on the Supreme Court,” External link

Ayanna Pressley wrote ( about Amy Coney Barrett ) : “First of all, there should be no nomination and absolutely no confirmation until after the Presidential inauguration. This is a rushed process and any candidate will no doubt be inadequately vetted and unqualified for a lifetime appointment to the highest court. Barrett’s long history of anti-choice, anti-LGBTQ, and anti-immigrant statements and decisions make her fundamentally unfit to serve on the Supreme Court,” External link
