WASHINGTON, DC – His choice, Sarah E. Pitlyk, would replace U.S. District Judge Catherine Perry in St. Louis, if confirmed by the U.S. Senate, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Perry was appointed by pro-abortion President Bill Clinton and plans to step down in December.

Pitlyk is a strong human rights advocate and defender of religious freedom. According to her biography, she worked on cases involving the custody of a human embryo and the unconstitutional St. Louis ordinance that declared the city to be an “abortion sanctuary.” She also has been involved in the defense of David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress and numerous other cases through the Thomas More Society, a leading pro-life legal group.

According to a White House news release, Pitlyk served as a law clerk to Judge Brett Kavanaugh before he was confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court. She earned degrees from Yale Law School, Boston College, Georgetown University and the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium. ….
