It’s been a hot summer but we are sure to enter the
dog days today. Figuratively speaking, the political environment will be in the 100s.
Brett Kavanaugh is currently a District Appeals Court Judge for D.C., appointed by President Bush in 2003.
His nomination was stalled in the Senate for three years!
Why was/is he so controversial? Here are some insights that will encourage pro-lifers to speak well of him when debates arise in conversations.
1. During his confirmation hearings in 2006 for the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, Kavanaugh stated that he considered Roe v Wade binding as a legal precedent, and would follow the ruling of SCOTUS. However in 2017 he praised the late Chief Justice William Rehnquist for dissenting in Roe v Wade, saying that Rehnquist believed an 'unenumerated' (constitutional) right to abortion would have to be "rooted into the traditions and conscience of our people. ... he could not reach such a conclusion about abortion."
