Planned Parenthood Trashes Justice Kavanaugh Again: “We Believe Julie Swetnick”

The abortion giant Planned Parenthood is clinging to a crumbling story in a desperate attempt to trash U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Late last week, Planned Parenthood sent out tweets declaring, “We still believe Julie Swetnick.” She is one of the women who accused Kavanaugh of sexual harassment, but few deemed her story credible, especially after she contradicted her sworn statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Reason reports.

“To believe Swetnick now is to disregard the facts and embrace blind faith,” Reason commented in response to the tweets.

Swetnick accused Kavanaugh of participating in gang rapes at parties when they were young adults. NBC interviewed her but later acknowledged that it had information that undermined the credibility of her claims. Last week, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley also announced a possible criminal probe against Swetnick and her lawyer.

But this information did not stop Planned Parenthood from trying to gain political points by using her story:

The radical pro-abortion group NARAL piggy-backed off Planned Parenthood’s tweet with one of its own:

Planned Parenthood and NARAL both lobbied heavily against Kavanaugh because of his conservative record on abortion, free speech and religious freedom, among other issues. Breitbart reminded readers how Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in America, also fundraised off Swetnick’s accusations.

Kavanaugh, the fifth conservative justice on the Supreme Court, poses a “serious threat” to “women’s right” to abortion, according to the pro-abortion groups.

Believing the women who accused him of sexual misconduct – no matter how little credibility their stories have – is one way these pro-abortion groups hope to gain back some of their political power.

National Review commented:

For abortion advocacy groups, her story was never the point. Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and, yes, even the ludicrous, debunked claims of Julie Swetnick were used by the pro-abortion left as tools to thwart the confirmation of a judge whom they believe will walk back the abortion rights they hold so dear. Planned Parenthood and NARAL don’t “still believe Julie Swetnick” because they care about actual victims of sexual violence. All they care about is using every available weapon, including false accusations and proven lies, to preserve the unlimited right to kill the unborn.

Kavanaugh previously 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 will do the same on the U.S. Supreme Court.

He may have his first chance to issue a ruling related to abortion involving an Indiana law protecting unborn babies with Down Syndrome from abortions.
