Wasserman Schultz on Trump’s Nomination of Kavanaugh to Supreme Court
Washington, July 9, 2018
“Donald Trump’s Supreme Court pick is a brazen attack on a woman’s right to control her own body and every American’s right to health care, as Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s record suggests an eagerness to erode or overturn Roe v. Wade, and an open hostility to the Affordable Care Act.
This pick not only endangers women and more than 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions, it also threatens the recent progress and long-established rights of workers, minorities and the LGBTQ community.
Another radical right-wing vote should not be elevated to the nation’s highest court and this nomination deserves rigorous scrutiny from the Senate. The freedoms and rights of women and minorities, as well as the health of all American families, hang in the balance.”
