BREAKING: Senate Confirms Trump Attorney General Who Opposes Roe v. Wade

Calvin Freiburger : Feb 14, 2019 :

It remains to be seen whether Barr's Justice Department will take a more proactive stance on investigating scandals such as Planned Parenthood's sale of organs from aborted babies.

Wade as constitutionally bankrupt. (Photo: William Barr/via Wikimedia Commons/LSN)

Trump asked for Attorney General Jeff Sessions' resignation the day after the 2018 midterm elections, having long been dissatisfied with the pro-life appointee's handling of both the Russia investigation and scandals involving the previous administration. A veteran of the CIA and Justice Department since the 1970s, Barr already held the position of Attorney General during the first Bush administration, for which the Senate confirmed him unanimously.

ABC News reports that Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky was the only Republican to oppose Barr, while Democrat Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Krysten Sinema of Arizona, and Doug Jones of Alabama crossed the aisle to vote for him.

Most of the conversation regarding Barr's nomination has revolved around how he will handle the ongoing investigation into the Russian government's alleged interference in the 2016 election, but many pro-lifers are more interested in his credentials on abortion.

Gary Bauer, a veteran pro-life and conservative activist who served with Barr in the Reagan administration, responded to Barr's original selection by calling him a "really good" guy, and a number of previous statements reveal he considers Roe to have been wrongly decided and deserving of reversal.
