The US Senate Judiciary Chairman has offered a defence of Amy Coney Barrett’s personal views.
Republican Lindsey Graham says it’s the first time in America’s history that a woman who is unashamedly pro-life, has been nominated for the Supreme Court.
He says her confirmation would be a signal of opportunity for all young women.
“This has been a long time coming and we have arrived, so I want to thank President Trump for giving you the opportunity to showcase your talents,” Senator Graham said.
Judge Barrett has declined to share her legal views on abortion, voting rights, and the Affordable Care Act at the confirmation hearings.
