LOS ANGELES, CA (California Network) -- Neil M. Gorsuch, 49, has been sworn in as the 113th justice of the Supreme Court. The ceremony took place at the White House, with Justice Anthony M. Kennedy swearing him in.

Justice Gorsuch is a staunch conservative, and is pro-life. His elevation to the court renews hope that we may finally end the scourge of abortion, or at least curtail its practice. His appointment ensures that religious employers won't likely have to participate in funding such procedures. Religious freedom should be restored.

On other issues, such as free speech, Gorsuch contends that money is a form of speech and it should not be curtailed. He is also believed to be a supporter of the Second Amendment.

President Trump told Gorsuch, "Justice Gorsuch, you are now entrusted with the sacred duty of defending our Constitution. Our country is counting on you to be wise, impartial and fair, to serve under our laws, not over them, and to safeguard the right of people to govern their own affairs."

Gorsuch pledged, "I promise you that I will do all my powers permit to be a faithful servant of the Constitution and the laws of this great nation."
