Washington, D.C. – Planned Parenthood Advocates for DC, Maryland and NoVa issued the following statement after a new report from Planned Parenthood Action Fund and In Our Own Voice: National Black Women’s Reproductive Justice Agenda revealed that abortion access is at risk for 25 million women should Brett Kavanaugh be confirmed to the Supreme Court.

“During the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, we solidified what we already knew: Brett Kavanaugh is completely unfit to sit on the highest court in the country,” Dr. Laura Meyers, co-President and co-CEO of Planned Parenthood Advocates for DC, Maryland and NoVa, said. “Not only would his confirmation be a signal to survivors of sexual assault that their bravery does not matter, it would put access to safe and legal abortion in great peril, especially for women of color.

His judicial track record shows a blatant disregard for the right to access abortion, and his actions over the past few weeks and the allegations that have arisen against him illustrate a general lack of respect for women. President Trump and Majority Leader McConnell are very wrong if they think they will jam through an extremist appointee without Planned Parenthood putting up a fight.”



Planned Parenthood of Advocates for DC, Maryland and NoVa is Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington, D.C.’s and Planned Parenthood of Maryland's joint affiliated 501(c)(4) advocacy organization. PPADMV advocates legislatively, politically and electorally in Maryland, northern Virginia & the District of Columbia for priorities that are part of Planned Parenthood’s mission, which includes fighting for women to be able to make their own reproductive choices.
