Justice Every Day!
On August 14th, 2005, the ultra-conservative Family Research Council will hold a simulcast television program called "Justice Sunday II: God Save the United States and this Honorable Court." The program features keynotes from several prominent, right-wing leaders speaking in support of John G. Roberts' nomination to the Supreme Court.
Tell your Senators that a confirmation of John G. Roberts to the U.S. Supreme Court betrays the principles of Justice.
Justice is a powerful word. It means fairness and righteousness. In a legal context, it relates to impartiality and the unbiased administration of the law. Progressive movements, including the women's movement, the civil rights movement, and the LGBT movement have used justice as a rallying cry.
Roberts is beholden to the ultra-conservative elements of the Republican Party and has spent his career advancing an extreme ideology that jeopardizes decades of civil rights and women's rights advances. With this nomination of Roberts, George W. Bush is fulfilling his campaign promise to the right-wing to overturn Roe v. Wade and put the Supreme Court squarely into conservative hands for decades to come.
Tell your Senator that "Justice Sunday" is not enough. We demand justice every day and for everyone!
