In Lead Up To Kavanaugh Confirmation, Opposition Cites Judge’s Stance On Reproductive Issues, Health Care
Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court bid is being questioned by Democratic Senators – and by some lawmakers sitting on the Senate’s Judiciary Committee – due to his positions on reproductive rights and health care, including policies regarding coverage of preexisting conditions that medtech firms support. On Aug. 24, Judiciary panel Democrats called for postponement of his planned Sept. 4 confirmation hearing, in part because Kavanaugh has said in the past that a sitting US president should not be investigated for criminal charges.
