An alumni group at Rhodes College issued a petition for the school to remove Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett from the school’s “Hall of Fame” because of her vote to overturn Roe v. Wade. The petition was prepared by Rhodes College Alumni for Reproductive Rights and is being forwarded to the school’s president Jennifer Collins and Director of Community Standards Richard Adams.

According to the letter, the signatories’ “strong confidence in the Rhodes Honor Code we all signed impels us to make this request.” The letter contends that Barrett has breached the Rhodes Honor Code through her testimony in the Senate confirmation hearings and in her “judicial decision-making process.”

“In each of the categories above, Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s devotion to an originalist interpretive technique of constitutional textual analysis (as represented in her scholarly legal papers) appears to be in conflict with statements she made to the United Adds Senate,” the letter states. During Barrett’s Senate confirmation hearings, she responded in response to a question asked by Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., that Roe v. Wade is not super-precedent.

No Political Players and Citizens

“To define cases that are so well-settled that no political players and no citizens really push for their overruling. And I’m answering a lot of questions about Roe, which I think implies that Roe doesn’t belong in that category,” Barrett added. The letter criticized Barrett’s response, claiming that she might have been misleading. “It was, at best, disingenuous of Justice Barrett to confess that she did not believe Roe to be a ‘super-precedent’ yet then say it did not mean the case ‘should’ be overturned, despite plainly adhering to a legal theory that would undoubtedly lead her to decide against Roe,” the letter states. “

And we feel that Justice Amy Coney Barrett is one of the largest contemporary threats to our fundamental rights, the stability of our nation, and our democracy. Moreover, as Rhodes alumni who vowed the same fidelity to truth, loyalty, and service’ as she did, we found her conduct to be a blatant – and probably history’s most devastating to date – violation of the Honor Code we all hold dear.”

“Simply being one of our most renowned graduates is not a sufficient excuse for the College to continue rewarding someone thus who has quite openly compromised the most fundamental Rhodes values. Therefore, we humbly urge that Justice Barrett be removed from the Rhodes College Hall of Fame based on the aforesaid infractions of the Rhodes Honor System,” the letter added.
