Amy Coney Barrett, the supreme court nominee, was a member of a "right to life" organization in 2016 that promoted a local South Bend, Indiana, crisis pregnancy center, a clinic that has been criticised for misleading vulnerable women who were seeking abortions and pressuring them to keep their pregnancies.

Barrett, whose confirmation hearing before the Senate judiciary committee is set to begin on Monday, was a member of the University Faculty for Life at Notre Dame from 2010 to 2016. Online records show that the group began promoting South Bend's Women's Care Center in 2016 on its website, adding a link to the group under a section called "Pro-Life Links".
