The radical anti-abortion group Operation Rescue has joined the many conservative groups urging the Senate to hold the late Justice Antonin Scalia’s Supreme Court seat open for more than a year in order to prevent President Obama from naming his replacement.
In a press release yesterday, Operation Rescue’s Troy Newman — a leader of Sen. Ted Cruz’s “pro-life” coalition — declared that with the Supreme Court battle, America must choose “fascism of freedom” because the country is “just one Obama appointee away from totalitarian government.”
The group also raised suspicions about the justice’s death, saying that “disturbing conflicting reports have surfaced” regarding the circumstances of his death.
Scalia’s death has posed an opportunity for Pres. Barack Obama to appoint a replacement for Scalia in this critical election year that would dramatically reshape the Court in a way that would continue protect abortion while threatening precious American freedoms.
Operation Rescue is urging the Senate to allow the next president to make that appointment.
“With the passing of the esteemed Justice Scalia, America stands at a crossroads. Will she choose the path of fascism or freedom? We are just one Obama appointee away from a totalitarian government. Two years ago, the GOP promised the American people that, if elected, they would thwart Obama’s radical leftist agenda. This is the GOP’s moment. Will it shine as a light for liberty in this dark moment or will that light be extinguished by political appeasement?” asked Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.
Now, disturbing conflicting reports have surfaced concerning Justice Scalia’s sudden and unexpected death with no autopsy planned.
Operation Rescue calls for a full inquiry into Scalia’s death and respectfully requests that an autopsy be performed in order to put to rest unanswered questions regarding his passing.
