Posted on July 11, 2018 Issues: Abortion Birth Control Judicial Nominations Supreme Court

Fatima Goss Graves, head of the National Women’s Law Center, reminded reporters on a press call Monday night that two of Kavanaugh’s most recent opinions for the D.C. circuit court expressed a belief that a woman’s boss should be able to veto her birth control coverage and that the Trump administration should be able to hold a teenage immigrant prisoner to prevent her from terminating a pregnancy that was quite likely caused by rape. “It’s no small matter,” Graves suggested, that it was after Kavanaugh had endorsed the administration’s forced-childbirth-by-imprisonment scheme “that his name first appeared on President Trump’s list of potential Supreme Court nominees.”
