NARAL Pro-Choice America Statement on Brett Kavanaugh’s SJC Letter

WASHINGTON - In response to Brett Kavanaugh’s letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, NARAL Pro Choice America President Ilyse Hogue said:

“Brett Kavanaugh’s letter of denial of the multiple sexual assault allegations against him comes straight from the Donald Trump playbook. Attack the survivor. Mislead the public. Attempt to use bluster to distract from the charges. Brett Kavanaugh is a perfect embodiment of today’s Republican Party and the exact reason women from coast to coast walked out today in protest.

“From Donald Trump to Roy Moore to Brett Kavanaugh, we’ve seen this movie one too many times. We believe Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez. We stand with them today, as do countless women, allies, and survivors who walked out with us today and said they believe survivors.

“Kavanaugh’s abhorrent and offensive letter is the most recent example of why he is totally unfit to serve on this nation’s highest court.  The multiple sexual assault charges come on top of his long and well documented history of lying to Congress, misleading the public, and holding extreme views on issues dear to the American people like abortion access.

“Enough. It is time for Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to be withdrawn.”
