At 4:00PM EST, the Senate voted in favor of confirming Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of The United States. The roll call vote was 50-48 in the Republicans’ favor.
After the nomination by President Trump, we were hopeful and expectant for a quick and quiet confirmation. However, confirmation was halted after a string of uncorroborated sexual assault allegations were launched at the nominee.
We believe this was nothing more than a smear campaign in a last stitch effort to delay the second Trump confirmation to the Supreme Court.
Democrats across the country made clear — even before the nominee was announced — they would oppose President Trump’s nominee.
Shortly after the nomination went public, despite no public position from Judge Kavanaugh, they opposed his confirmation under the premise that he would go after abortion.
Kavanaugh’s stance on abortion remains unclear, but due to his reverence for the the Constitution, we are hopeful he will be the key in overturning Roe v. Wade, the unconstitutional, and baseless Supreme Court ruling that legalized the killing of over 60,000,000 children in the United States of America.
“Today’s confirmation ignites passion in the rapidly growing pro-life movement; we applaud the historic vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, an honorable man committed to the fidelity of the United States Constitution and its equal protections for all Americans — born and preborn,” says Devin Sena, President of Human Defense Initiative.
