The organization also placed an ad on the opposite page from the insert that called for putting "an end to the barbaric legacy of Roe v. Wade and restore laws that protect the lives of unborn children," CNN reported.

Signatories were only asked to approve the statement, according to the National Review.

The Saint Joseph County Right to Life group was founded in 1972 "in anticipation" of the Supreme Court's 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade, according to its website. The landmark Supreme Court decision legalized abortion rights.

President Trump said earlier this week that it's "possible" Barrett could tip the court against the Roe v. Wade decision.

"It's certainly possible," the president said in response to a question during an interview on "Fox & Friends Weekend" over whether a potentially conservative-majority court would "rule on a life issue."

"And maybe they do it in a different way. Maybe they'd give it back to the states. You just don't know what's going to happen," Trump said.

During her confirmation for a seat on the 7th US Circuit Court of Appeals in 2017, Barrett was asked by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) when it is "proper for a judge to put their religious views above applying the law?"

Barrett responded that "It is never appropriate for a judge to impose that judge's personal convictions whether they derive from faith or anywhere else."

The Hill has reached out to the White House for comment.
