Oklahoma district judge nominee Sara Hill apparently lied about her previous pledge to ignore state abortion laws on Cherokee Nation land following the historic Dobbs v. Jackson ruling. Hill, a Cherokee herself, was previously attorney general of the Cherokee Nation.
During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Wednesday, Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, asked Hill whether she had said that she “had no intent to enforce the law post-Dobbs.” Hill responded by claiming she “never said that.” However, video footage from her time as attorney general demonstrates otherwise.
In a recording, Hill can be heard saying she would not update any procedures in her tribal office to enforce abortion laws passed in the state of Oklahoma post-Dobbs.
Thanks to @BasedMikeLee for taking radical Biden judicial nominee Sara Hill to task over her abortion stance highlighted in the video we released earlier this week https://t.co/IieTuld61p pic.twitter.com/B0e1vjhUGG— Oversight Project (@OversightPR) November 16, 2023
