Two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton attacked U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh Wednesday as Senate hearings on his confirmation continued.
Clinton, who supported a radical pro-abortion agenda during her campaigns, does not like the idea that Kavanaugh could be the fifth conservative justice on the high court and a possible vote on abortion restrictions and the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
“If Brett Kavanaugh becomes a Supreme Court justice, will he help gut or overturn Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion in America? Yes, of course he will,” Clinton wrote on Twitter.
Clinton continued: “A few weeks before Kavanaugh’s name appeared on President Trump’s short list for a new justice, Kavanaugh praised the dissent in the Roe v. Wade case and called former Supreme Court Chief Justice William Rehnquist his ‘hero,’ noting that ‘he clearly wanted to overrule Roe.’”
A Democrat, Clinton supports unrestricted abortions for basically any reason up to birth. She also advocated for taxpayer-funded abortions throughout her 2016 campaign, and promised to appoint pro-abortion justices to the Supreme Court if elected.
Clinton joined the radical pro-abortion group NARAL, Planned Parenthood and others in labeling Kavanaugh a “serious threat” to “women’s right to safe, legal abortion,” while national pro-life leaders have expressed high hopes for Kavanaugh and the future of unborn babies’ rights.
Kavanaugh has served on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for D.C. for more than a decade, where he developed an extensive record of protecting religious liberty and enforcing restrictions on abortion. Pro-life leaders believe he would do the same on the Supreme Court.
