The AUL CEO Charmaine Yoest Sends Letter To Senator Kyl on the Sotomayor Hearings

July 15, 2009 | By | No Comments

July 8, 2009

Dear Senator Kyl:

Thank you for your service on the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary.

As you prepare for the hearing of Judge Sonia Sotomayor, nominee to the United States Supreme Court, I urge you on behalf of America’s oldest national pro-life organization, and on behalf of all Americans, to thoroughly question Judge Sotomayor about her judicial philosophy.

To accomplish that goal, we respectfully submit a list of proposed questions to ask during the hearings which would bring the nominee’s judicial philosophy into sharp focus.

These questions will give Judge Sotomayor the opportunity to explain problematic statements that she has made about the role of the judge, and clarify whether she agreed with the radical arguments made by the Puerto Rican Legal Defense Fund (PRLDEF) in the briefs that they submitted to the Supreme Court in abortion-related cases while she served on its Board.

Judge Sotomayor has never disavowed any of the positions argued by the PRLDEF during the twelve years she served as a board member.

Over the past several weeks, Americans United for Life has fought to dispel the myth that Judge Sotomayor’s appointment to the Supreme Court would simply replace one liberal with another.

Our comprehensive legal investigation has led us to conclude that Judge Sotomayor’s judicial philosophy is more extreme than Justice David Souter for many reasons.

Despite his support for Roe vs. Wade, Justice Souter voted repeatedly to uphold laws such as limits on taxpayer funding for abortion, informed consent, and parental notification – which polls show are supported by at least 70 percent of the American public – whereas the PRLDEF consistently argued that such common sense regulations were unconstitutional.

Just recently, Judge Sotomayor stated in an interview with U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) that she had never thought about whether an unborn child has constitutional rights.

This lack of reflection in a time when Americans are more pro-life than ever before can only lead us to believe she is not only completely out of touch with American values, but would threaten the legal protections for unborn children at any stage in pregnancy, including late-term, nearly viable babies.

Senator Kyl, for these reasons and more, please consider asking Judge Sotomayor these questions, which may also be found on AskSotomayor.com.

Americans and their elected representatives deserve to learn more about Judge Sotomayor’s judicial philosophy before she is given a lifetime appointment to our nation’s highest court.

Sincerely,

Dr. Charmaine Yoest

Charmaine Yoest Profiled in The Washington Post, a calm, articulate, smart abortion opponent…

charmaine_wnd.jpgThe Washington Post has a fair and balanced report on Charmaine’s leadership at Americans United for Life,

Anti-Abortion Leader to Testify at Sotomayor Hearing, By Jacqueline L. Salmon

Charmaine Yoest, [Ph.D.] president [and CEO] of Americans United for Life, will be the only anti-abortion leader testifying at the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor, the group announced today.

Americans United For Life… is the oldest anti-abortion group in the country. Founded in 1971, the group is involved in more than just anti-abortion causes. It also weighs in on issues related to health and biotechnology.

In a recent column for the Washington Times, Yoest wrote that Sotomayor is “more extreme” than Justice David Souter, whom Sotomayor is replacing.

Yoest is a calm, articulate, smart abortion opponent — the kind who gives abortion-rights supporters nightmares.

Since virtually the moment Sotomayor’s name surfaced as a possible Supreme Court candidate, AUL has been conducting vigorous opposition research. It has set up two Web sites, including Sotomayor411.com that compares Souter to Sotomayor on a variety of issues, including abortion, end-of-life issues and the rights of abortion demonstrators.

Suffice to say that Sotomayor doesn’t fare too well. And it has also has AskSotomayor.com, which lays out 10 questions that it says senators need to ask her.

Yoest plans to testify on Sotomayor’s involvement with the Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund (FRLDEF), which she says proves that Sotomayor is an “abortion advocate.”

The group has pushed aggressively for an interpretation of abortion rights that would eliminate most or all state and federal abortion regulations while requiring state and federal funding of abortion, Yoest maintains.

Thank you (foot)notes:

Keep Charmaine in your thoughts and prayers as she prepares for her moot-court murder board in preparing for her testimony on Thursday.

Charmaine is concerned about Sotomayor’s friend of the court briefs on supporting all abortion-on-demand issues: no informed consent; no parental notification; and partial birth abortion is just fine. Sotomayor wants no medical regulation on any abortion until birth or perhaps beyond.

This is what Obama wants.

McCain Warns AUL: Abortion Funding in Health-Care Reform Is Being Fast-Tracked

July 14, 2009 | By | No Comments

By Charmaine Yoest | July 13, 2009

Americans United for Life has spent the last few weeks leading up to this week’s hearing in meetings with senators on the Judiciary Committee and their staffers, on both sides of the aisle, presenting them with the research that the AUL legal team has done on Judge Sotomayor’s pro-abortion advocacy.

On July 13th, we had the opportunity to meet with Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) to take our concerns directly to him and ask him to use his leadership in the Republican ranks to draw attention to her extreme record.

We had a good conversation with Senator McCain and he clearly shares our concerns. He was very interested in hearing about our “Worse than Souter” documentation (available at Sotomayor411.com) that outlines the pro-abortion advocacy that Judge Sotomayor was associated with while she served on the board of the Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund.


Join Fight FOCA

McCain volunteered his own concern that the “health-care reform” agenda is hurtling down the tracks as well and that it will contain abortion funding, which he strongly opposes. He even thinks it is possible that Obama will push to pass it before the August congressional recess, while we are all focused on the Sotomayor confirmation hearings and vote.

There is no doubt that abortion funding will become a mandate in the plan under consideration. McCain encouraged us to engage our grassroots supporters on the health-care reform issue as soon as possible.

We are taking his caution to heart and will be emphasizing action in opposition to the health-care government takeover in the days ahead.

Conservatives Offer Last Words as Sotomayor Hearings Begin, by Sarah Pulliam

Senate confirmation hearings for Sonia Sotomayor began today as the Supreme Court nominee tried to preempt some of her critics.

Norma McCorvey, known as “Jane Roe” during the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion, was arrested after she yelled that Sotomayor was “wrong” during Sen. Al Franken’s opening statement.

Sonia Sotomayor hearings are the first skirmish in ideological war over Supreme Court’s future

by Richard S. Dunham/Houston Chronicle

Republicans will cite her decisions on sensitive social issues such as affirmative action, abortion and gun rights to claim that she is to the left of the man she’d replace, retiring Justice David Souter.

“Her record of activism in support of a radical, pro-abortion agenda is clear and documented,” said Charmaine Yoest, president of Americans United for Life, who is scheduled to testify at the confirmation hearing. “The American people will not tolerate a nominee who is outside the mainstream of American public opinion.”

Charmaine Getting Ready for Sotomayor Hearings Testimony on Thursday & Townhall Article

July 13, 2009 | By | No Comments

Charmaine _AP.jpgCharmaine is reviewing her briefing books prepping for her testimony to the Judiciary Committee on Thursday. She has provided Congressional testimony on two other occasions as an expert witness.

Dunno her hit time yet. Some Senators have said that any witness who says ‘Sotomayor is an activist’ will be challenged.

So I turned to Charmaine and ask, “Is Sotomayor an activist judge?”

She replies, “Yes.”

Expect fireworks on Thursday.

From TownHall.com, Grist for the Grill: To Question Sotomayor,

When the Senate Judiciary Committee begins grilling Supreme Court nominee Judge Sonia Sotomayor this week, one question will almost certainly not be on the agenda. Ironically, it is the question that is most important to President Obama, if his statement about the main quality he seeks in a high-court appointee is anything to go by.

Obama told Planned Parenthood’s national conference in July 2007 that, if elected President, the criteria he would use to select Supreme Court judges would be their personal feelings – specifically, their ability to feel “empathy.” In fact, the least appropriate question for Judge Sotomayor would be about her personal feelings on Planned Parenthood’s core issue – abortion – or on any other politically charged issue that may come before the Supreme Court.

No representatives of any major pro-abortion groups, including NARAL, Planned Parenthood and others appear to be on the list of representatives invited by Democrats on the panel.

“We are honored to have the opportunity to testify before the Judiciary Committee about the nomination of Judge Sotomayor to the highest court in the land,” Yoest told LifeNews.com about her invitation.

“I am looking forward to sharing AUL’s extensive legal research about Judge Sotomayor’s record. In particular, her radical associations and judicial philosophy raises serious concerns in the pro-life community,” she said.

Senate Republicans Ask Pro-Life Group’s President to Testify on Sonia Sotomayor, by Steven Ertelt, LifeNews.com,

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — When leaders of various advocacy groups get a chance to testify on the nomination of Supreme Court pick Sonia Sotomayor, a leading pro-life advocate will get a chance to represent the pro-life community. Senate Republicans have asked Americans United for Life president Charmaine Yoest to testify.

Yoest is scheduled to testify on Thursday, primarily to highlight Sotomayor’s involvement with LatinoJustice PRLDEF and make the argument that, as she put it, “a vote for Sotomayor is a vote for unrestricted abortion on demand.” PRLDEF has taken positions in opposition to parental notification and bans on partial birth abortion, Yoest said.

Yoest also said she has heard rumors that Sens. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Al Franken, D-Minn., will be “pretty aggressive in their questions” when she takes the stand Thursday, but “we’re welcoming the opportunity to get out her record.”

“If people are surprised about how much abortion is coming into play, maybe that’s because they haven’t been paying attention to her record,” Yoest said.

Charmaine Yoest, CEO of AUL, To Give Testimony at the Senate Hearings for Sotomayor

July 11, 2009 | By | No Comments

Charmaine Yoest, Ph.D., president and Chief Executive Officer of Americans United for Life will be a witness providing testimony at the Senate confirmation hearings for Sotomayor.

The Senate Judicary committee will meet this week — Charmaine will be sworn in on Thursday. She is schedule to testify after the American Bar Association and is set up as a rebuttal witness for the pro-administration Mayor Bloomberg.

Do you have a question you’d like to ask Sotomayor? Then go to www.AskSotomayor.com,

In listing his requirements for a Supreme Court pick, President Obama highlighted “empathy.” Americans deserve a judge who decides cases on the basis of constitutional principles, not personal feelings. And we deserve to know whether Judge Sotomayor will uphold those principles laid down by the Founding Fathers, or whether she will live up to her claim that the courts are “where policy is made.”

From The New York Times, Witness List for Sotomayor Has a Couple of Surprises,

The Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday issued a list of the witnesses lined up to testify at the confirmation hearings for Judge Sonia Sotomayor, which begin Monday…

And the Republicans have lined up Frank Ricci himself, the firefighter from New Haven, Conn., who just won a discrimination case in the Supreme Court, when it overturned a ruling by a panel of judges that included Judge Sotomayor.

For the Democratic majority in the Senate in support of Judge Sotomayor’s confirmation, the other witnesses are:

[snip] Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg of New York; [snip]

For the Republicans, the scheduled witnesses are:

Linda Chavez, president of the Center for Equal Opportunity; Sandra S. Froman, a former president of the National Rifle Association; Stephen P. Halbrook, a lawyer and gun rights advocate; Tim Jeffries, the founder of P7 Enterprises, a management consulting firm; Peter N. Kirsanow, a commissioner on the United States Commission on Civil Rights; David Kopel, a lawyer with the Independence Institute; John O.

The Washington Times Gets It Right: Sotomayor’s Abortion Ties

June 10, 2009 | By | No Comments

The Editorial page writer at The Washington Times has done some valuable research that will advance the debate on Sotomayor. The nominee is not Pro-Life.

EDITORIAL: Sotomayor’s abortion ties, Don’t believe disinformation that she’s pro-life

The most basic evidence of the judge’s support for Roe comes in the triple combination of White House assurances to that effect, of pro-choice senators declaring after meeting with her that they are sure she agrees with them, and of her entire jurisprudential approach of broadly construing anything characterized as “women’s rights.”

Other evidence is more direct. Consider that from 1980 until October 1992, Judge Sotomayor served on the board — at times as vice president and at times as chairman of the litigation committee — of the Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund. The New York Times in 1992 described her as “a top policy maker on the board.” During that time period, the fund filed briefs in not one, not two, but at least six prominent court cases in strong support of “abortion rights.”

Sotomayor: Who Sleeps Better at Night, AUL or NARAL? Charmaine Interviewed in USA Today And by AP

June 5, 2009 | By | No Comments

Alert Readers following on Twitter know that Charmaine has been in a number of media interviews.

Sometimes as a source.

Sometimes as a target.

See her quote in USA Today this morning on the Sotomayor nomination,

Sotomayor, a trial judge for six years and appellate judge for 11, has not ruled on a case involving Roe v. Wade. She has decided a few cases at the fringes of the issue, yet those defy predictions.

On Wednesday, Feinstein explained why she will persist on the abortion rights question: “I remember what it was like when abortion was illegal, and the lives of young desperate women were in jeopardy.” She said she worries that “Americans no longer appreciate what it would mean if (abortion rights) were taken away.”

Nominees usually elude such questions during their hearings.

“I don’t have concerns about this nominee in the sense that I think there is something on the record (against abortion rights),” says Nancy Northup, president of the Center for Reproductive Rights. “We just think it’s important for Supreme Court nominees to say where they stand.”

Charmaine Yoest, president of Americans United for Life, agrees. While observing that she and Northup both see nothing definitive in Sotomayor’s record, Yoest says, “I think Nancy’s probably sleeping a little better at night.”

JULIE HIRSCHFELD DAVIS at AP interviewed Charmaine for GOP leader doesn’t rule out Sotomayor filibuster

Abortion-rights opponents circulated a 1988 legal brief joined by the PRLDEF that took a position in strong support of abortion rights and argued strenuously against dismantling the underpinnings of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling that established a woman’s right to end her pregnancy.

The brief, submitted to the Supreme Court to support a challenge to a Missouri law making it illegal to use public officials or facilities for abortions, warns of “the danger of tampering with the core framework of Roe v. Wade.” The brief said doing so would disproportionately harm poor women of color. The high court ultimately upheld the Missouri law in the case, Webster v. Reproductive Health Services.

There is no evidence or indication that Sotomayor had any role in drafting the brief, or the PRLDEF’s decision to join it. Cesar A. Perales, now the group’s president, said its board has never been involved in deciding which cases the organization takes on or matters of litigation. Board members sometimes do, however, help decide which legal issues the organization should focus on, Perales said.

But abortion-rights opponents said the brief raises questions about Sotomayor’s stance on Roe.

“It’s explicitly a pro-abortion argument,” said Charmaine Yoest of Americans United for Life. “That specific case makes it very difficult for her to say that she doesn’t have a position” on abortion rights.

Other citations on Sotomayor,

CitizenLink reports,

In a recent poll commissioned by Americans United for Life, 69 percent of respondents said they do not want a Supreme Court justice who opposes “making it illegal for someone to take a girl younger than the age of 18 across state lines to obtain abortions without her parents’ knowledge.”

The Catholic Review writes

Charmaine Yoest, president of Americans United for Life, a public-interest law and policy organization, said in a statement that “for all the president’s talk of finding ‘common ground,’ this appointment completely contradicts that hollow promise.” Without explaining why, Yoest said Sotomayor’s “judicial philosophy undermines common ground” and called her “a radical pick that divides America.”
