Release: Senate confirms Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Senate confirms Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court

WASHINGTON, D.C.—October 6, 2018: Judge Kavanaugh is the second confirmed justice during Trump’s presidency, and Pro-Life advocates are optimistic that Justice Kavanaugh and Justice Gorsuch will contribute to the high court’s return to constitutional principles that recognize the rights of all human beings.

The U.S. Senate voted to confirm the Honorable Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States. Kavanaugh, who served as a judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, has a record of conservative jurisprudence, adhering to strict constructionist principles. He has consistently advocated for interpreting the Constitution as written.

President Donald Trump announced the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh in July following the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy. Throughout the nomination process, indeed mere minutes after the announced nomination, Kavanaugh faced extreme opposition from prominent Democrat allies of the abortion industry. The retirement of Justice Kennedy, who was considered for decades the swing vote on Pro-Life cases, sent abortion activists into a panic. Abortion lobbying groups falsely claimed that Kavanaugh’s confirmation would result in abortion being outlawed. In fact, if Roe v. Wade were overturned, abortion law would be returned to the states, which could then legislate based on the legitimate state interest in fully protecting fetal Life.

“Today’s Senate vote is a victory for Judge Kavanaugh, and for the President, but also for the rule of law – it is a victory for all who believe that the federal courts should enforce the rights truly based on the text and history of the Constitution, and otherwise leave policy questions in the hands of elected legislators,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life.

South Dakota Right to Life is optimistic that Judge Kavanaugh will prove to be a principled justice who will consistently recognize the Right to Life of all human beings. South Dakota continues to pass Pro-Life laws aimed at protecting babies from abortion, undermining the legally untenable Roe v. Wade.

    What’s the SDRL position on expanding the ACA to South Dakota? Since they claim to have a womb to the tomb interest like any good socialist. 😉

            Don’t you mean pro-birth or pro-abortion? Once those babies are born, you only care about their health and wellness if it doesn’t cost you anything. You’d rather see them live a short life if it means saving you money.

              People wait years to adopt children. How many people are foster parents and then end up adopting the children?

              You have no idea what you’re talking about. Hit up Kathy Tyler, she’s trying her best to educate people.

                Most people who can afford a child can’t afford adoption. Why don’t you pro-birthers fund adoption agencies to get these kids into homes faster? It’s cheaper to go overseas than it is to get an American child.

          Words are designed to discriminate between things. If you want to convey a belief, you use words that exclude other beliefs, so people know what you mean
          “Choice” is an act , like choosing between a cheeseburger and a regular hamburger. “Choice” is unintelligible when used alone – like “I like choice”. You have to finish the sentence if you really want to intelligently convey a view.
          If we are talking about whether you want or don’t want abortions, you are either pro-abortion or anti-abortion. Real clear. No confusion. You cannot intelligently say I want abortions to happen, but I am not in favor of them happening
          Pretty clear. Always was clear in news. Until media adopted new usage in that little standard book they use. Dana Ferguson explained to me that the words they use come from that book (I forget the name of the book)

            Thanks to Twitter, your argument is collapsing more and more every day.

            “You cannot intelligently say I want abortions to happen, but I am not in favor of them happening…”

            The problem with that statement is that you assume the “want,” and when you take the “want” out of it, then the choice is clearly understood.

            Plus, your hamburger analogy suggests that if you are for “Fair” elections, that you must be for both the Democratic and Republican candidates for a given position, in order, to be “fair.” No you don’t, you just want to be fair and give fair choice to the electorate.

    AP Style book, just looked it up. They don’t approve of use of “pro-choice” either. So…apparently I was mislead by my media friend and when you see that phrase in a newspaper you know they are being intentionally biased

      Doesn’t pro-choice imply there are several options? The only choice I hear advocated from “pro-choice” supporters is abortion. Once some high school students hung a pro-choice poster – ‘adoption not abortion’ – that was quickly removed by the school, adoption isn’t a choice?

      One thing that has become a trend with pro-choice supporters is how easily they are angered and become violent. The newest video of a protestor round-house kicking a pro-life advocate is further evidence of this.

    Actually people do have a choice (except in cases of rape), and that choice is made BEFORE choosing to have unprotected sex, not after another life is involved.

      Why do pro-choice supporters demand murder of unborn babies be the only choice?
