Amy Coney Barrett's extreme views on established US laws make her a dangerous pick for the Supreme Court, writes Ruth Marcus of The Washington Post. She has voiced multiple times that she is willing to break with established precedent if it clashes with her ideology. This is a radical approach; judicial law is largely based on precedent and weighing previous interpretations of laws. Barrett's past indicates that she would undermine precedents set regarding abortion, regulations, the environment and other areas. In other words, she could be incredibly disruptive to laws that many Americans have long viewed as essential. Republicans should nominate a justice who relies less on ideology.
The appointment of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court would be great for America, asserts Rich Lowry of National Review. While many left-wing entities are doing what they can to smear and attack her, she is absolutely the right choice. Her pro-life ideals is an asset, not a drawback. Barrett's qualifications as a judge are numerous, she has risen high in a prominent career, while still mothering seven children. Democrats have done what they can to paint her as unqualified for this position, but to no success. Barrett's record is clean, she has shared opinions regarding policy, but her adherence to the rules of the court will be iron-tight. Republicans must do what they can to confirm her appointment.
