Focus on the Family Action on Sotomayor

Focus's political arm released a statement attributed to Judicial Analyst Bruce Hausknecht. As with other pro-life groups, the statement doesn't talk about Judge Sotomayor's legal decisions but rather focuses on the 2001 Berkeley speech and the 2005 Duke panel.

“With President Obama’s nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, the country is again confronted with the question: What type of justices should sit on the Court? Americans overwhelmingly support justices who base decisions on the law and the Constitution, practice judicial restraint, and believe judges should never make policy," Hausknecht said in the written statement. “From what we know about her, though, Judge Sotomayor considers policy-making to be among a judge’s roles, no matter what the law says. She disregards the notion of judicial impartiality, even stating that as a Latina woman with her life experience she should ‘more often than not’ reach a better conclusion than a ‘white male who hasn't lived that life.’"
