At the Values Voter Summit on Tuesday, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) said that he wants to see President Donald Trump make a Supreme Court nomination who sees Roe v. Wade as an act of “judicial imperialism” and a wrong decision.
“This is a turning point moment,” Hawley said. “We have an opportunity here as conservatives — those of us who believe in the right to life, those of us who believe in religious liberty — this is a moment when we’ll be able to shape the future of this court for decades to come.”
Hawley said a pro-life position that sees Roe v. Wade as wrongly decided was required to get his vote for confirmation.
“If you think Roe is okay — if you think there is not a problem with Roe, not only are you wrong on the moral issue, it also tells me you don’t understand a judge’s role in our constitutional structure,” Hawley said.
Hawley will certainly not be a rubber stamp vote to confirm anyone Trump nominates.
