The abortion giant Planned Parenthood continued its rant against U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Twitter this week by pointing to allegations that he sexually assaulted a woman when they were both teenagers.
Kavanaugh said the 11th-hour allegations are “completely false,” but abortion activists are pushing to delay a vote on his confirmation.
They are desperately hoping to tarnish his image in advance of a Senate Judiciary Committee vote on his nomination Thursday. Senate Democrats are attempting to do to Kavanaugh what they did to Justice Clarence Thomas.
“This is the highest court in the land. Sexual assault allegations are very serious. Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process must not go forward, and the safety and privacy of the survivor must be respected. #StopKavanaugh,” Planned Parenthood tweeted.
In another tweet referring to Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, the abortion chain implied Kavanaugh may be a “juvenile offender.”
Dawn Laguens, vice president of Planned Parenthood, seemed to put her full faith behind Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Ford.
“Christine Ford is incredibly brave and her decision to come forward should be met with nothing but the greatest respect,” Laguens wrote online. “Senators must stop #kavanaugh’s nomination process immediately. #StopKavanaugh”

Laguens slammed Kavanaugh’s character in another tweet, writing:

However, the letter containing the allegations appeared to be released based on political motives. Sen. Dianne Feinstein reportedly sat on the letter for months and only release it for political expediency last week after the hearings on Kavanaugh concluded. Feinstein did not bother to bring up the letter during days of confirmation hearings and failed to ask Kavanaugh any questions about it.
Planned Parenthood and other abortion activists hope to delay the vote on Kavanaugh until after the midterm elections in November, when they hope to regain the U.S. Senate and permanently block him and other presidential nominees.

The New Yorker reported Friday that the alleged incident occurred in the early 1980s, when Kavanaugh was a student at Georgetown Preparatory School, an all-boys school in Bethesda, Maryland. The woman, meanwhile, went to a local high school.
The woman said in a letter sent to Democratic lawmakers this summer that during a party, Kavanaugh held her down and tried to force himself on her, according to allegations published in The New Yorker.
Kavanaugh and his classmate, who were drinking, increased the volume of the music that was playing to hide her protests, the letter reportedly says. Kavanaugh allegedly used his hand to cover the woman’s mouth, before she was able to escape.
“I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation,” Kavanaugh said in a statement. “I did not do this back in high school or at any time.”
Other women who knew Judge Kavanaugh during that time period vouch for his character and high moral standard.
Abortion activists fear Kavanaugh, who has served on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for D.C. for more than a decade. He has an extensive record of protecting religious liberty, including in the Priests for Life case, and enforcing restrictions on abortion. Pro-life leaders believe he would do the same on the Supreme Court.
Meanwhile, Sen. Susan Collins’ office says it has received threats of rape and other violence from abortion activists who want her to vote against U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
