An alumni group at Rhodes College has petitioned the school to remove Supreme Court Justice Amy Comey Barrett from the school’s “Hall of Fame” for her vote to overthrow Roe v. Wade.

The petition was created by Rhodes College Alumni for Reproductive Rights and is being sent to school principal Jennifer Collins and director of Community Standards Richard Adams.

According to the letter, “the signatories’ firm belief in the Rhodes Code of Honor that we have all signed drives us to make this request.”

The letter alleges that Barrett has violated Rhodes’ code of honor through her testimony in Senate hearings and in her “judicial decision-making process.”

In each of the above categories, Judge Amy Comey Barrett’s adherence to an original interpretive methodology of constitutional textual analysis (as reflected in her scholarly legal papers) appears to be at odds with statements she made to the Senate. United States,” the letter reads. .

During Barrett’s Senate hearings, in response to a question from D-Minn. Senator Amy Klobuchar, she said Roe v. Wade isn’t super precedent.

“To define things that are so well regulated that no political actors and no people are seriously pushing for their overruling. And I answer a lot of questions about Roe, which I think indicates that Roe doesn’t fall into that category,” Barrett said.

The letter criticized Barrett’s response, stating that it may have been misleading.

The alumni group also wrote that Barrett poses a major threat to fundamental rights in America.

“And we believe Judge Amy Comey Barrett is one of the greatest current threats to our fundamental rights, the stability of our nation and our democracy. In addition, as Rhodes alumni who have sworn the same allegiance to truth, loyalty and service” as she did, we find her actions a clear – and arguably the most destructive yet in history – violation of the code of honor held dear to all of us.”

“Just being one of our most famous alumni is not a sufficient reason for the College to honor someone in this way who has very publicly violated the most fundamental Rhodes values.
