UPDATE Sunday, Sept. 27: President Trump officially nominated Barrett to the Supreme Court on Saturday. Barrett previously clerked for former Justice Antoni Scalia. 

On Saturday, President Donald Trump is expected to nominate a new Supreme Court justice following the passing of liberal Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

After Ginsburg’s death, Trump hinted that he would nominate a woman for the position and multiple sources have claimed Amy Coney Barrett will be nominated for the position.

In the past, Barrett, who serves on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals and is a social conservative, has openly shared her opinion on abortion and her disagreement with the Roe vs. Wade ruling. 

While she doesn’t believe the entire verdict will be overturned, she believes there should be some changes to certain parts of it. “I think the question of whether people can get very late-term abortions, you know, how many restrictions can be put on clinics, I think that will change,” she previously stated.

If Barrett, 48, replaces RBG, there will be a 6-3 majority on the High Court. The change would put issues like abortion rights, voting rights, LGBTQ rights, and other policies in jeopardy of being revised. 

BBC reported that although Barrett is a devout catholic, she has insisted that she doesn’t allow her religious views to affect her career. However, in a 2013 magazine article, Barrett stated that “life begins at conception.” 

The comment reportedly earned her popularity among other religious conservatives who would like to see the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion overturned.

Barrett, who is the mother to  7, graduated from Notre Dame University Law School and clerked for the late Justice Antonin Scalia.
