The supreme court has lost a great leader, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. After serving for 27 years she passed away in her home. She was a major advocate for abortion rights, gay rights, religious liberty, and environmental regulation. Her stance was more liberal than conservative. After her passing, she stated she didn’t want to be replaced until after the new presidential elections. Although years before Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican denied President Barack Obama to replace another supreme court figure so close to elections, is now claiming for Donal Trump to allow a new replacement as soon as possible. Despite his stance from years before. This would set the supreme court with more conservative over liberals.
After reviewing the article “Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Dies”, I believe senator Mitch McConnel should stick to his stance from years before. In my opinion, he is rushing to get more conservatives in the Supreme court. The replacement should be held after the new presidential elections since it’s too close ahead. I think this too early nomination could be detrimental to the rights of abortion, the gay community, and the environment.
Why could be the effect of a replacement of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg under the Trump Administration?
