Day Three for Supreme Court Nominee Barrett

Testimony of witnesses begins Thursday.

On Wednesday, Judge Amy Coney Barrett faced the third and last day of giving her testimony in the hearings for her nomination to the Supreme Court.

During her testimony, she was pressed on topics ranging from abortion to gay rights to voting rights to racial discrimination.

She continued to decline to answer when lawmakers wanted her to commit to a particular position on cases that might well come before the court, citing the “Ginsburg rule” of “no preview, no hints, no forecasts.”

The fourth day of hearings for her nomination will be from witnesses who will testify on the positives and negatives of her serving as a justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Senators Dianne Feinstein and Lindsey Graham have released the names of witnesses. Topics the witnesses will cover are the Affordable Care Act and pre-existing conditions, abortion and reproductive rights, voting rights, the separation of powers, and the qualifications of Judge Bennett.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Judge Barrett and her family as they continue to go through the confirmation proceedings.
  • For guidance from the Lord as witnesses take the floor and are questioned by members of the Senate.
  • For the Senators as they ask questions to determine Judge Barrett’s fitness for the Supreme Court.
