NARAL Statement on Gov. Sandoval as Potential Supreme Court Nominee

WASHINGTON - In response to reports that Gov. Brian Sandoval (R-NV) is under consideration to possibly fill the vacancy on the US Supreme Court, NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue issued the following statement:

"We find it hard to believe that President Obama, who shares the value of reproductive freedom for all Americans, would put forward Governor Sandoval as a serious contender for the Supreme Court nomination. But if he were, Sandoval's checkered history on reproductive freedom should raise some serious flags - it certainly has for us. More telling, though, is that the mere rumors of his nomination brought swift pushback from a GOP so committed to obstructing the process and letting President Obama do his job that they don't even want to let one of their own get a hearing."
