Washington D.C. - Tonight, more allegations of sexual assault perpetrated by Brett Kavanaugh came to light. Planned Parenthood issued the following statement.
Quote from Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President of Planned Parenthood Action Fund:
Brett Kavanaugh is now facing multiple sexual assault accusations — it could not be more clear that senators must stop this confirmation process. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez have courageously come forward with their experiences, and have been bullied, shamed and threatened for speaking out. They have nothing to gain by telling their stories publicly. Every senator and the entire country owes them respect and gratitude for coming forward.
“Instead of seeking additional information when Deborah Ramirez’s allegations became known to the Committee last week, Chairman Grassley tried to accelerate the confirmation process and silence her voice. Once again, his actions make clear that he has no intention of seeking the truth or listening to survivors.
“This is a job interview for a lifetime appointment to the highest court in the land. Judge Kavanaugh’s record of blocking abortion access and birth control are already a clear disqualification. The two — and counting — allegations of sexual assault are further disqualification, and if senators and the White House continue to push forward Kavanaugh’s nomination, they threaten the integrity of the Supreme Court.
“Enough is enough. Senators, now is the time: Reject Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination.
