In a Supreme Court with Brett Kavanaugh on it, would a persons legal right to birth control be in jeopardy?

Associate Justice Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh

Married individuals have had a right since the mid-1960’s to purchase birth control. Unmarried individuals have had that right since the early 1970’s.

Would that right still exist for people if Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court?

Today, when commenting on a case brought on by Priests for Life before the United States Court of Appeals in Washington D.C. (where he is a member), he may have committed a Freudian slip by stating, while explaining his dissent in that case,  that birth control “is abortion-inducing drugs.”

Really?

Are you listening to this Senators Collins and Murkowski? Are you listening to this Red State Democratic Senators up for reelection?

In a Supreme Court with Brett Kavanaugh on it, would women and men have a legitimate worry that their legal right to birth control can be taken away?

Is Judge Kavanaugh so reactionary and backward in his beliefs that he, along with the other conservatives on the court, would vote to take away an individuals rights to protect themselves from unsafe relations and unwanted pregnancies, setting us back to the 1950’s?

In a country where such worries seemed unfounded, today’s testimony should send chills up everyone’s backs.

Again, are you listening to this Senators Collins and Murkowski? Are you listening to this Red State Democratic Senators up for reelection? The rights of our people are in your hands and that is not an exaggeration.

  1. Make sure everyone you know understands that overturning Roe v. Wade will not end abortion.

    It will end safe abortion. Women will die.
