WASHINGTON – Lena Zwarensteyn, Fair Courts campaign director at The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, issued the following statement on the confirmations of David Dugan and Stephen McGlynn to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois:
“It is deeply cruel that McConnell continues to prioritize his takeover of the courts instead of pursuing solutions for the crises in public health, economic security, and racial injustice while people are devastated and dying.
“The confirmations of David Dugan and Stephen McGlynn put that court takeover into stark relief. Both have worked against reproductive freedom in their professional and personal capacities. Dugan previously campaigned on an anti-abortion stance and questioned the legality of Roe. Similarly, McGlynn has been instrumental in pushing forward an anti-abortion agenda in Illinois. Their records on this and other critical civil and human rights make them unfit for lifetime positions.”
