SCOTUS Nominee Left SPEECHLESS When Asked To Define Woman

Conservatives were stunned and upset on Wednesday when Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first black woman to be nominated to the Supreme Court, declined to define the term “woman” on the basis that “I’m not a biologist,” as she put it.

Jackson made the remark during a Tuesday conversation with Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), who asked the DC Circuit Court of Appeals judge a direct question.

Online clips of the exchange went viral, with critics pointing out Jackson’s refusal to acknowledge the biological fact of sex.

Jackson’s retort, according to Washington Post columnist Piers Morgan, was ludicrous.

“Certainly ironic to have a full day of encomia to Jackson being the first black woman nominated for the job, capped by Jackson saying she doesn’t know what a woman is,” tweeted National Review writer Dan McLaughlin, who added in a follow-up post: “The 19th Amendment lists’sex’ as a prohibited basis for discrimination against voting rights, & abortion advocates sometimes argue that women’s propensity to get pregnant means that gender equity requires a right “It isn’t irrelevant.”

Though she said she couldn’t define the word “woman,” Jackson used it multiple times during Tuesday’s press conference, including when she said the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey decisions “are the settled law addressing the right to terminate a woman’s pregnancy.”

During questioning by Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) on whether Roe v. Wade could be overturned and whether a baby was viable, she reverted to the “I’m not a biologist” excuse on Wednesday.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn was repeatedly reminded by Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson that she was unfamiliar with the issue and couldn’t offer an opinion.

The heated exchange took place on the second day of Supreme Court candidate Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation hearings on March 22, 2022.
