Judge Amy Coney Barrett Confirmed to the Supreme Court

Supreme Court building
On Monday, the Senate voted to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the United States Supreme Court. Barrett was sworn in at the White House after the evening vote in the Senate. The 52-48 vote was divided almost exclusively by party, with only one Republican, Senator Susan Collins, joining the Democrats in opposing confirmation. Barrett is the sixth Catholic currently serving on the high court, joining John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Brett Kavanaugh, and Sonia Sotomayor. She joins the court in time to hear upcoming cases dealing with the Affordable Care Act and religious liberty for adoption agencies. In addition, the court will soon consider whether to review a Mississippi law that bans nearly all abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy.
