Dawn Johnson's Pals at MU Law

Signatories to a letter pressing for confirmation of Dawn Johnson include:

Kali Murray and Paul Secunda
Marquette University Law School

In April 2009, Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, characterized Johnsen’s views on abortion as “bizarre.”

"Dawn Johnsen does not represent mainstream America or the type of common ground abortion policy President Obama promised this nation," Dannenfelser said at the time. “Her bizarre characterizations of pregnancy as 'slavery' and mothers as 'losers in the contraceptive lottery' expose an unacceptable disdain for commonsense abortion restrictions and motherhood in general. Furthermore, Johnsen's opposition to existing federal restrictions like the ban on partial-birth abortion casts doubt on her ability to perform her duties faithfully as the head of the Office of Legal Counsel."

"Bizarre" is appropriate. So MU Law faculty members endorse "bizarre"?

Just asking.
