Amy Coney Barrett Submits Additional Anti-Abortion Docs To Senate After Scrutiny
President Danald Trump's Supreme Court appointee Judge Amy Coney Bryant disclosed on Friday a newspaper ad from 2013 which criticized Roe v. Wade's 'infamous' judgment that "55 million unborn children were murdered." In addition to his last-minute documentation she was requested to apply for election to her offices.
The ad came amid other materials which she delivered to the Judicial Committee of the Senate, which mandated judicial candidates to complete a questionnaire and to include written documentation and statements.
The papers were submitted on 29 September.
Barrett also disclosed in her Friday Disclosure that she was speaking at two gatherings organized at the Notre Dame University for anti-abortion student organizations in 2013, at which point she was law professor.
The substance of her talks she did not announce.
In a letter to the heads of the judiciary committee published late Friday, the ad, funded by a faculty organization to which Barrett belonged, was featured in Notre Dame's student paper.
"Over 50 thousand newborn infants have been destroyed by abortion in the 40 years after the Roe v. Wade ruling of the Supreme Court," it reads.

After Democrats protested the 2006 anti-abortion journal ad that it signed, which it had not previously recorded, Barrett released new facts earlier this week. The article was written in 2006.
Its appointments commence on Monday.
In her letter on Friday Barrett said that "out of great caution" she published the "additional" details; she argued "that it was not obvious" that the new information was needed in the questionnaire.
But she noted, "I know of several things that you might already have used," so she was now sending them to them.
The omissions of Barrett pose the likelihood that further details might be accessible that she did not report.
The repercussions that she faces for not first reporting the advertisements and the conversations are not obvious.
Furthermore, in 2014, footage from Barrett's public talk has already been disclosed, recorded by CNN. CNN.
Democratic representatives of the Judicial Senate Committee wrote a letter to the Ministry of Justice earlier this week urging officials to assess if Barrett met the conditions of full transparency.
Democrats claimed Barrett had not disclosed an open letter of 2006 earlier.
This declaration, signed by barrett and others, blasted Roe v. Wade's 'barbarian heritage' and 'explicitly requested that the judgment be reversed.'
"This contributes to further concerns about other allegedly lost documents if we refuse to release the 2006 letter," writes the Democrats.
"The absence creates doubt also that the collection process, like the appointment process itself, for no reasonable cause has been hurried."
Barrett made no decisions as a federal appellate court judge on abortion, but her stance on Roe v. Wade was simple, who denied American women about half a hundred years ago the right to abortion.
Republicans from Trump and the Senate hurry to confirm Barrett until the election on November 3.
