Action today (Sept. 22)- Oppose Claude A. Allen
The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing this Wednesday to
consider the nomination of Claude A. Allen to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. Allen, who is currently serving as Bushs Deputy Secretary for the Department of Health and Human Services, should not be confirmed due to his lack of experience, his far-right ideology, his lack of respect for the law, and his nomination from Virginia to a seat reserved for a member of the Maryland bar.

Urge the Senate Judiciary Committee to Oppose Confirmation of Allen

Allen is a staunch opponent of abortion rights, going so far as to claimthat abortion is causing a genocide of the black population. He helpeddraft Virginias parental notification law and supported a law imposing a 24 hour waiting period and requiring biased information be given to women seeking abortions. Furthermore, Allen has been a vocal supporter of abstinence-only education programs and backed the Bush Administrations decision to remove information about condom effectiveness and teen pregnancy prevention from the Center for Disease Control (CDC)
