In the next several days, the Senate plans to consider the nomination of William Pryor to a seat on the U. S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit. Mr. Pryor repeatedly has exhibited that he is far outside of the mainstream of American jurisprudence. Many groups that work to maintain constitutionally guaranteed equal rights for all Americans are strongly opposed because his confirmation would be detrimental to religious liberty, human rights, women's rights, rights of the disabled, consumers, workers, and the environment.
