Organized for Life Leads Campaign Against Activist Judicial Nominee Sonia Sotomayor

WASHINGTON, May 26 /Christian Newswire/ -- Organized for Life has stepped up as the leading force against President Obama's nominee for the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Souter.
Organized for Life's PAC, OFL Action, has opened a petition site at www.stopsotomayor.com to oppose the addition of another potentially pro-abortion justice to the Supreme Court. Sonia Sotomayer has a record of legislating from the bench that stands against the will of the majority of Americans.
* Fifty-one percent of Americans call themselves pro-life.
* Eighty-two percent of Americans do not want a justice who would support partial-birth and late term abortion.
* Sixty-nine percent do not want a justice that opposes parental involvement laws.
This open spot on the Court was President Obama's opportunity to create the common ground he sought by representing the American people's views on abortion. He missed the mark completely in nominating Sonia Sotomayor for Justice Souter's seat.
Peter Shinn, National Director of Organized for Life, commented that, "Sonia Sotomayor is out of step with the American people. Quoted in 2005 as believing that policy comes from the bench, she stands counter to the American people's desire to end the tragedy of abortion."
Ruben Obregon, President of Organized for Life, added, "In nominating Sonia Sotomayor, President Obama chose to further his own pro-abortion agenda rather than seek common ground on the abortion issue. Instead of faithfully representing America's views, President Obama has added another reliably liberal member to the Court who will continue to impose the Court's will on the people. Pro-life activists, the Davids in this epic battle for life, can only stop the Goliath of the White House by banding together and signing the petition at www.stopsotomayor.com."
The petition against Sonia Sotomayor can be found at www.stopsotomayor.com and will be sent to President Obama and the members of the United States Senate.
