Action for Today on Hearings for Neil Gorsuch


Today’s the day! Hearings are scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. Your task this week is to encourage your members to support the Gorsuch nomination on social media, or e-mail if they aren’t on social networks. Here are some sample suggestions for messages:

Facebook #1:

I think Neil Gorsuch is a good pick. He’s well qualified, and he will respect the rule of law. In our country the voters and their elected representatives are supposed to be writing laws, not biased judges using their own personal opinions.

Facebook #2:

Senate Democrats have a history of badly mistreating judicial nominees or filibustering them, simply because they disagree about the role of judges. Judge Neil Gorsuch respects the rule of law and is well qualified for the Supreme Court, he deserves a fair hearing.

Twitter #1:

Judge Neil Gorsuch is well qualified and deserves a fair hearing in the Senate, not a filibuster #SCOTUS #Gorsuch

Twitter #2:

America deserves Supreme Court justices like Neil Gorsuch. He respects the rule of law & democratic process #SCOTUS #Gorsuch

RLM will be active on social media throughout the week and we’ll keep you informed of any developments. We’ll also be sharing the attached graphics, feel free to do so yourself or share them from our page when we post them. Here’s the schedule for the hearings if everything runs smoothly:

  • Monday: Opening statements from senators and Gorsuch
  • Tuesday: Gorsuch testimony/questions
  • Wednesday: Gorsuch testimony/questions
  • Thursday: Testimony from others

 A vote is hoped to take place in the first week of April before the Easter recess.

Soul Enters Egg at the Moment of Conception

Northwestern University in Chicago, while experimenting with fertilizing eggs for invitro fertilization, shows a “SPARK OF LIFE” as soon as the sperm enters the egg when a flash of zinc can be seen.  Experiments were published in April, 2016 in the Journal of Scientific Reports. Journal of Scientific Reports.

Although there are ethical problems for a lot of people when it comes to invitro fertilization, at least now people have some scientific proof of when a new life begins. I couldn’t help but wonder if these experiments also have shown why there are miscarriages.  I am sure skeptics will most likely say this isn’t “proof at all”, but just a chemical reaction, but those of us who believe that life begins at conception will find this in line with our religious beliefs. Just as God creates all things, He also creates the chemical reaction, a sign of a new life forming.

There are a lot of YouTube videos and articles on the internet if you would like to learn more about “The SPARK OF LIFE”.

Third Week of Action You Can Take to Help Neil Gorsuch Become the Next Supreme Court Justice.



It’s been clear from the beginning of his nomination process that Judge Neil Gorsuch is well-qualified to fill the shoes of Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court. The American Bar Association agrees, giving him their highest rating: “well qualified.” The U.S. Senate unanimously approved Gorsuch to the U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in 2006.

Several groups are opposing his nomination, including abortion supporters like Planned Parenthood. It’s clear their fears have nothing to do with Gorsuch’s judicial experience or his personal views; they fear him because he’s fair-minded.

In his writings and public statements, Gorsuch has made it clear he believes the role of judges is to rule based on what the law says. Simple enough, right? Not for abortion supporters. For years, they have relied on judges to rig the system in their favor.

A biased court system has significantly reduced trust in our democratic process. Millions of Americans of all political persuasions have come to believe established power players are willing to ignore or even subvert their choices in our democratic process. They aren’t wrong.

On November 7, 1972, 60 percent of Michigan voters took to the polls to keep our state’s law respecting the rights of the unborn child. A version of that law has been in effect since 1846, maintained by generations of voters and elected representatives and coexisting for more than a century with the U.S. Constitution.

None of this mattered when Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton were handed down several weeks later on January 22, 1973. Seven judges who personally supported abortion discovered that the Constitution requires abortion-on-demand through all nine months of pregnancy. Unable to directly cite any text in the Constitution to support their personal views, the judges asserted they can be found in the penumbras formed by emanations created by zones.

Those seven judges privileged their own personal views over those of voter and duly elected representatives.

Prolife groups aren’t expecting Gorsuch to impose our agenda through legal magic tricks. All we want is to restore a fair democratic process so our voices have an opportunity to be heard. Based on his record, Gorsuch is a fair-minded judge who lets voters and legislators exercise their proper roles in our government.

The U.S. Senate must consider Judge Gorsuch with all due diligence, but his record indicates those who seek fairness have nothing to fear.

Third Week of Action You Can Take

Next Monday, March 20, is the big day! The Gorsuch hearings will begin in the Senate Judiciary Committee. This week is your opportunity to do two tasks to help people and the press begin to focus on next week’s events:

1. Submit an editorial or letter to the editor to your local paper
2. Encourage your affiliate members to submit letters to the editor

Below are sample letters to the editor you can borrow ideas from, and a reminder of our three talking points. I’ve also attached the editorial we’ll be submitting to the state’s major papers this week, feel free to borrow and steal parts of it as well.

Sample letter to the editor #1:

Our government relies on three co-equal branches of government. Congress writes the laws. The President assents and executes the laws. The Judiciary applies the law to cases and controversies. For too many times in our nation’s history, this has not been how our government operates. Our Supreme Court and lower court judges have often legislated from the bench. They have substituted their personal bias for the will of voters and their elected representatives. This harms our democratic system. Imagine a football game where the outcome depends on which referee is calling the game. Judge Neil Gorsuch, President Trump’s nominee to replace Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court, is a judge who will rule based on the law, not his personal feelings. He’s well qualified to serve, and deserves a fair hearing in the U.S. Senate. Let’s leave lawmaking to the voters and their elected lawmakers.

Sample letter to the editor #2:

Judge Neil Gorsuch is a well-qualified judge with a lot of experience. He has degrees from Columbia, Harvard and Oxford. He has served as a U.S. circuit court judge for 10 years. Judge Gorsuch will respect the rule of law and the role of judges in our democratic system. Justice Antonin Scalia, who Gorsuch has been nominated to replace on the U.S. Supreme Court, was also a firm believer that voters and their representatives write laws, and judges should apply laws as they are written. Judge Gorsuch deserves a fair hearing in the U.S. Senate, and should not be filibustered simply because Senate Democrats don’t like him or voters’ decision during the election. Elections have consequences and changes should be in the hands of our voters, not unelected judges. Let judges judge and let voters decide our future.
Talking points:

  • Judge Gorsuch is well qualified to serve on the Supreme Court
  • Judge Gorsuch deserves a fair hearing and should not be filibustered
  • judge Gorsuch believes in the rule of law. Voters and their representatives write the laws, not judges using their personal bias.
