What’s at Stake for Women if Kavanaugh Is Confirmed to Supreme Court

What’s at Stake for Women if Kavanaugh Is Confirmed to Supreme Court

The nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court would threaten Roe v. Wade—and women's health and reproductive rights.

President Donald Trump has said he would only consider a Supreme Court justice who would overturn Roe v. Wade, and he appears to have his man in Brett Kavanaugh. These brave women are here to remind us that we don’t have to imagine a country without legal abortion; they already know the debilitating barriers that people face when trying to access abortion care and what life was like 50 years ago when many had no choice.
