Rev. Samuel Rodriguez: ‘Justice Sotomayor either misunderstands or intentionally deceives’

Dec. 6, 2021
President of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference responds to Justice Sotomayor’s comments on fetal pain
SACRAMENTO — Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, President of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, has issued the following statement in response to Justice Sotomayor’s unconscionable comments regarding fetal pain:

“Justice Sotomayor either misunderstands or intentionally deceives when she claims unborn children respond to stimuli much like a brain-dead person or a corpse. The comparison is not only disrespectful and morbid, it is also scientifically dishonest.

“Justice Sotomayor, if you conduct a simple Google search, you will find that The Journal of Medical Ethics—not doctors on the political and moral fringes—assert that an unborn human baby can potentially feel pain as early as 12 weeks of gestation.

“As a Justice of the highest court, you have a responsibility to protect the rights of those in our country, especially those who cannot protect themselves. I pray that you will realize your error and reconsider your defense of the abomination that is abortion and choose instead to protect those who, made in His image, are God’s most vulnerable creation.”

Rev. Samuel Rodriguez is president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, executive producer of “Breakthrough” with 20th Century Fox and a bestselling author. CNN and FOX News have called him “the leader of the Hispanic Evangelical movement” and TIME magazine nominated him among the 100 most influential leaders in America. His newest book Persevere with Power: What Heaven Starts, Hell Cannot Stop (Chosen Books) released Oct. 5.
