Who is William Barr?

Trump nominated former corporate lawyer William Barr to replace Jeff Sessions, who resigned in late 2018. Barr served as attorney general in the George H.W. Bush White House in the early 1990s. As attorney general, Barr would be tasked with upholding our nation’s laws and protecting our rights and freedoms — including a woman’s constitutional right to access abortion. But Barr has shown time and again he won’t protect reproductive rights and is opposed to anti-discrimination measures that protect women, LGBTQ people, and others.

I believe Roe v. Wade should be overruled... Roe v. Wade basically, in my view, took [power to ban abortion] away from the states… and I don't think that opinion was the right opinion.
