Nominee Gets a Hand

Date: July 14, 1981
Type: Newspaper clipping

Caption: "A White House aide cleared a path through cameramen for Supreme Court nominee Sandra Day O'Connor yesterday as she arrived in Washington, D.C., hoping to head off conservative opposition to her approval by the Senate . She will meet with Strom Thurmond RS.C., chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Jesse Helms R-N.C., a leader of Republican conservatives in the Senate. The Moral Majority and anti-abortion organizations have expressed opposition to O'Connor because they believe she supports legalized abortions and ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment for women."
