As Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings continue, Democrat desperation is reaching a fever pitch.

In a last-ditch effort to spoil the inevitable confirmation, Democrats are claiming Kavanaugh’s ascension to the bench will leave women, especially minority women, without birth control.

Within minutes, our inboxes were flooded with a coordinated message response to Kavanaugh’s stance on birth control. During today’s proceedings, Kavanaugh referred to The Pill as an abortion-inducing drug. The phrase Democrats seized upon was simply Kavanaugh restating the position of another, not his own view.

The Senators:

She the People

Kavanaugh Birth Control Position Will Hurt Women of Color Most

Washington, DC — Brett Kavanaugh in today’s confirmation hearings stated that birth control pills are ‘Abortion-Inducing’ Drugs.

Aimee Allison, Democracy in Color President and She the People Founder, released the following statement in response:

“If you are wondering why there is a wave of women of color winning elections and voting in record numbers this year, look no further than Trump’s Kavanaugh circus. No one has more to lose from Donald Trump’s irresponsible pick for the Supreme Court, or any of his other antics, than women of color. If the GOP picks a Supreme Court justice who wants to deny birth control to women, the women of color wave will overtake all of these men in the next election.”

Deb Haaland: Kavanaugh’s Birth Control Problem Shows Everything is on the Line for Women in America

Albuquerque, NM — Statement from New Mexico Congressional Candidate Deb Haaland on the statement by Brett Kavanaugh in today’s confirmation hearings that birth control pills are ‘Abortion-Inducing Drugs:

“Everything is on the line for American women right now. The GOP is working to appoint a man who thinks birth control is abortion and that abortion should be illegal. I urge every member of the Senate to stand with women and vote no on Kavanaugh.”

Women’s March

Cory Booker Joins Kavanaugh Resistance

Women’s March on Kavanaugh Files Release: Cory Booker is a Patriot, Kavanaugh is a Lying Disaster

Washington, DC — Just hours after Women’s March leaders joined women from across the country to occupy Senator Chuck Grassley’s office in protest of the hundreds of thousands of missing Brett Kavanaugh files that the public was denied access to. Now, Senator Cory Booker has risked his position to release a glimpse of those files — giving the public a glimpse into the depth of Kavanaugh’s opposition to equal rights.

Bob Bland, Women’s March Co-President, released the following statement after leaving the sit-in at Senator Grassley’s office:

“Cory Booker is a patriot who joined the Kavanaugh resistance today by releasing these documents. They show that Brett Kavanaugh is not only a disaster, he is a lying disaster. Now, we demand the release of ALL of the secret Brett Kavanaugh files.

“Women will die if Kavanaugh is confirmed — as these documents show. He is deeply opposed to Roe, and a threat to all of us. Trump brought this fight to us, and just like Senator Booker, we’re going to ‘bring it’ in response.

“Senator Booker is modeling exactly what we expect of every member of the Senate: we need to stop Kavanaugh by any means necessary.”

Women’s March and Center for Popular Democracy Action have organized daily protests to #CancelKavanaugh. More than 150 women and allies have been arrested over the last three days voicing their distress over Kavanaugh and the threat he poses to America. Most were arrested for disrupting the hearings themselves, and more for occupying the offices of Senators who were not doing enough to halt the process.

Right, because Booker is a super reliable champion.

Women’s March: Kavanaugh Birth Control Position Makes This an Emergency, All-Hands-On-Deck Moment for Women

Washington, DC — Brett Kavanaugh in today’s confirmation hearings stated that that birth control pills are “Abortion-Inducing Drugs.”

Bob Bland, Women’s March Co-President, released the following statement in response:

“This is a an emergency, all-hands-on-deck moment for women across America. We know Brett Kavanaugh is against abortion, and now we know he thinks birth control is abortion.

“Donald Trump wants to drag women’s rights back a generation or more, to a time where women were forced to bear pregnancy after pregnancy against their will. Donald Trump and Brett Kavanaugh have picked a fight with American women, and we will take note of exactly who’s side our elected leaders are on. If you vote against our birth control, we will vote you out of office.”

This post was updated post-publishing to clarify the fact that Kavanaugh’s remarks on The Pill were a restatement of someone else’s view, not his own.
