Selecting Supreme Court nominees is one of the most important responsibilities for presidents and does a tremendous amount to shape their legacies. We urge President Obama to replace Justice Stevens with another well-qualified justice whose record demonstrates a deep commitment to equal justice under the law, and to protecting our right to privacy.
At a time when just two of our nine justices are women, the nation would be well-served if President Obama nominated another woman to the Supreme Court. There are countless highly qualified female candidates who would be extraordinary justices."
