Pro-life groups are calling on vulnerable Democratic senators to advance President Donald Trump’s nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, to the Supreme Court.
Kavanaugh cleared the Senate Judiciary Committee on Friday on a party-line vote, a day after Christine Blasey Ford testified that the D.C. Appeals Court judge sexually assaulted her when both were at a high school party. Kavanaugh has categorically denied the charge and every party attendee Ford has named has denied or sworn under oath that no such event occurred. Pro-life groups are now calling on the Senate to move beyond the committee hearing and confirm Kavanaugh to the nation’s highest court.
“It is time for the full Senate to confirm Judge Kavanaugh immediately,” American Family Association president Tim Wildman said in a statement. “Despite the sleazy tactics used against Judge Kavanaugh, he has weathered the storm.”
