Obama’s nominee for Court of Appeals for D. C. Circuit, Cornelia Pillard, is a radical feminist who tries to use the Constitution to prove that under the banner of “sex equality,” abstinence education denies equal protection to female students.  Please call your Senators right now!  The debate over Pillar’s confirmation is tomorrow, Wednesday, 7.24.13. – Donna Garner



7.23.13 — “Criminalization of Abstinence Education Sought By Obama’s Court Nominee” —

Excerpts from this article:
It is difficult to exaggerate the extremist views of Cornelia Pillard, a current presidential nominee for the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.  As the Senate debates her nomination on Wednesday of this week, NAEA urges them to reject this appointment.
Pillard’s visceral opposition to abstinence education, coupled with her copious misinformation on the subject, calls into question her fitness for the position.  Under the banner of “sex equality” she attempts to make a constitutional argument that abstinence education denies equal protection to female students.
According to Pillard, abstinence education rises to the level of constitutional violation due to the fact that it is “designed not only to expose students to ideas, but also to shape student behavior.”*
She blatantly distorts the manner in which abstinence programs share information and empower health behaviors.   Ms. Pillard mischaracterizes the approach by asserting: “Retrogressive gender ideology, prescribing chastity and maternity for women while assuming lustfulness and autonomy for men, is at the heart of today’s abstinence-only education movement. In that regard, the abstinence- only approach conflicts with the substantive norms of both equal protection and reproductive justice.”*
Her spurious charge ignores the fact that abstinence education programs seek optimal heath outcomes for all students – male and female.  She maligns an approach that explicitly advocates a single sexual standard, prides itself in empowering young men and women, and that promotes health and well being of the individual and society in general.

Cornelia Pillard must be held accountable for her reckless attacks. Valerie Huber, President/CEO of NAEA states: “NAEA urges Congress and common-sense citizens to vigorously oppose a nominee who voices a total disregard for the facts about abstinence education and shows a frightening desire to aggressively use the Constitution to promote her radical ideological views.”

Obama Judicial Pick Cornelia Pillard: Abortion Needed to “Free Women From Maternity”

by Tony Perkins | Washington, DC


Excerpts from this article:


…Senate Democrats seem to be banking on the fact that Americans are on vacation and not paying attention, because liberal leaders are trying to slip in a quiet confirmation hearing for Cornelia “Nina” Pillard.


A Georgetown law professor, Pillard is the President’s latest nominee to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals — and only the second one since President George W. Bush to wait less than two months for a hearing.


Why the rush? Ed Whalen of NRO’s Bench Memos suspects that Pillard (who’s been described to him as “less moderate” than the most activist liberal in appellate court history) wouldn’t survive intense scrutiny.


The hurry, Whalen warns, “seems designed to prevent a careful review of their records.


Obama himself has taken forever to make nominations to the D.C. Circuit, and that court remains underworked, so it is difficult to see the justification for the sudden rush.”


Unfortunately for Americans, the Senate won’t have to dig too deep to uncover some of Pillard’s shockers. Among some of her greatest hits, the former Deputy Assistant Attorney General argues that abortion is necessary to help “free women from historically routine conscription into maternity.”


As if her militant feminism wasn’t apparent enough, she takes the opportunity in some of her writings to slam anyone who opposes the abortion-contraception mandate as “reinforce[ing] broader patterns of discrimination against women as a class of presumptive breeders.”


…She argues that too many Christian conservatives see “men’s sex drive and sexual satisfaction [as] privileged, while women’s is demonized or ignored.”


America can’t afford to give a lifetime appointment to a radical ideologue!
