"Kavanaugh is going to reverse Roe VS Wade!"
That's what the liberals said every day of the Kavanaugh hearing. It was their response to criticism that his accusers didn't have any evidence to prove he'd wronged them.
No witnesses, no evidence, no one to corroborate a story.
"But my abortions! He wants to take away my abortions! This justifies falsely accusing him of rape!"
Liberals honestly believed Justice Brett Kavanaugh was some kind of right wing extremist (or maybe that's just what they wanted to believe).
Here's a reality check: he's not a conservative just like he's not a rapist. The real Brett Kavanaugh is a beer loving, youth basketball enthusiast with centrist-moderate political opinions.
Yesterday this was proven to the world after a vote by Justice Kavanaugh decided the Supreme Court would stay out of legal fight over efforts to block Medicaid funding to Planned Parenthood.
Remember the controversy over Planned Parenthood administrators selling dead baby parts a few years back? Brett Kavanaugh is not on our side of that controversy.
On Monday the Supreme Court rejected a review of appeals from two states which claimed the nation’s largest abortion provider should not receive any public funding after a series of videos surfaced showing the group allegedly engaged in the illegal sales of fetal tissue for medical research.
Planned Parenthood has argued over and over that they don't receive any federal funding for abortions, they only pay their doctors to provide a range of other medical and health services for poor families, and if the doctors on their payroll happen to perform an abortion or two while they're at the clinic, so be it.
Strangely, Planned Parenthood was never charged over the fetal tissue issue controversy even though millions of people saw the videos (one of the people in the videos even joked about using the money to buy a Lamborghini).
Reasonable lawmakers in Louisiana and Kansas, who saw the same videos as millions of other people, wanted to defund the group. But Planned Parenthood wasn't having it, so they filed a lawsuit to overturn state laws in an effort to preserve their Medicaid services.
Three conservative justices said the Supreme Court should get involved in the legal fight: Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch.
Brett Kavanaugh wasn't one of them. Brett Kavanaugh voted with Justices Sotomayor, Kagan, Ginsburg, and Breyer.
Considering his moderate leanings, the outrage over Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearings was always surprising to people who knew who he was before the controversy started. Kavanaugh is a centrist, just like Kennedy, the guy the replaced.
