Ten Republicans Join Democrats to Back Pro-Abortion Obama AG Nominee Loretta Lynch
Posted on April 25 - from LifeNews
Lynch argued that the ban against the killing of partially born children was “unconstitutionally vague and threatens the integrity of the criminal justice system.”
Ten Republicans today joined Senate Democrats to approve the nomination of pro-abortion Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch. The Senate has had Lynch’s nomination pending for weeks but it has been held up because Senate Democrats were filibustering a bill that helps sex trafficking victims because they want funds in it to pay for abortions.
Lynch is the nominee to replace pro-abortion Attorney General Eric Holder. Holder, who is pro-abortion and who used his post in the Obama administration to target pro-life people, announced in September he would step down from his position when a replacement has been confirmed.
The Senate, by a 56-43 vote, confirmed Loretta Lynch to become the 83rd attorney
general and first African-American woman to the position.
Sens. Kelly Ayotte (N.H.), Thad Cochran (Miss.), Susan Collins (Maine), Jeff Flake (Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Orrin Hatch (Utah), Ron Johnson (Wis.), Mark Kirk (Ill.), Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) joined Senate Democrats in approving her nomination.
