“A White House email to Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear sent the afternoon of June 23 announced that President Joe Biden planned to nominate anti-abortion Republican Chad Meredith for federal judge in the state’s eastern district the very next day,” USA Today reports.
“But the very next day was June 24, when the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade and ended the federal constitutional right to abortion — effectively banning abortion in Kentucky because of its trigger law.”
“Meredith’s nomination — which hadn’t been revealed to the public — was not announced or submitted by the White House. However, there is no indication it has been rescinded.”Save to Favorites
