Brett Kavanaugh won’t oppose Roe v. Wade outright. Here’s what he might say instead.
“A lot of terms like ‘settled law’ or ‘respecting precedent’ are troubling,” Gretchen Borchelt, the vice president for reproductive rights and health at the National Women’s Law Center, told Vox. “They don’t actually tell you his views, and they’re code words for people who want to see that precedent be overruled.” “He’s not saying he agrees with that settled precedent,” Borchelt said. “He’s just acknowledging that those decisions exist, and that’s really not enough for somebody who’s going to be in the position of being able to change that law.”
