An earlier screenshot of the Girl Scouts’ Instagram post.
  • She refused to say whether she would uphold access to safe abortion, birth control, or fertility treatment.
  • She has said that requiring health insurance policies to cover contraception violates religious liberty.
  • Her writing implies she does not believe the Constitution guarantees women equal protection before the law.
  • She was a member of an anti-abortion group and said publicly that she believes life begins at conception. In a 2015 Texas Law Review article, she opposed the idea that courts should always uphold precedent, referring to Roe v. Wade.
