National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Executive Director Matt Foreman said that Alito’s appointment "would spell disaster for LGBT Americans for decades to come." "His judicial record fully reflects his embrace in the 1980s of the right wing agenda and is completely antithetical to the constitutional principles and values on which our rights and equal protection guarantees rest,” said Foreman. The National Black Justice Coalition also announced its opposition to Alito. “The Supreme Court is the final arbiter of our laws and its rulings can drastically impact the lives, liberties, and rights of all Americans," the NBJC said in a statement. "No individual should be confirmed to the Supreme Court unless he or she has clearly demonstrated a strong commitment to the protection of civil rights and liberties, human rights, privacy, and religious freedom. In these areas, the evidence reviewed to date shows that Judge Alito's record is highly troubling." The NBJC said that Alito's "overall record reveals a jurist whose views are well out of the judicial mainstream on a number of issues."
