California Catholic Daily is also reporting that USF’s School of Law’s commencement speaker Goodwin Liu, an associate justice of the Supreme Court of California, has supported abortion rights and same-sex “marriage.”
Liu was infamously nominated to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in 2011 by President Obama, but Senate Republicans rejected the nomination because of the extreme nature of Liu’s views.
But those same views didn’t stop California’s Governor Jerry Brown from nominating Liu to the state’s Supreme Court. LifeNews.com reported that Liu is a “liberal abortion supporter” and has served on the boards of directors of the American Constitution Society, the ACLU of Northern California, and the National Women’s Law Center. The NWLC states on its website that it’s “working to ensure that women have access to abortion care by protecting and advancing this fundamental right.” Liu was also said by the Los Angeles Times to be “a supporter of gay rights,” including support for same-sex “marriage.”
