Ok with you? He attacked you for enforcing truancy laws in SF.

  • Referred by: Demand Justice (finally they found someone who’s actually a judge already! Do you think they’re worried about paper trails?)
  • Judge on the D.C. Circuit
  • Married to the ACLU’s top lawyer—imagine having the ACLU deciding SCOTUS cases!!
  • Totally gets it about abortion: we have to have abortion to free women from “conscription” into motherhood!
  • She gets it about churches too—letting Christians decide for themselves who can and can’t be a minister is “a substantial threat to the American rule of law.” (SCOTUS went 9-0 the other way—which is why we need her on the Court, to balance weak-kneed moderates like Sotomayor and Ginsburg!)
  • Has a great judicial record:
Favorite Nina quote:
“impaired access to contraceptives . . . reinforces broader patterns of discrimination against women as a class of presumptive breeders,”
