DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement after Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote a dissent criticizing the court for upholding precedent and blocking a Louisiana law that would greatly restrict access to abortion:
“It was only a matter of time before Brett Kavanaugh launched his war against Roe v. Wade. Every Republican senator who voted for Kavanaugh is responsible for this attack. And any senator who believed Kavanaugh’s promise to respect women’s rights was deluding themselves. His record was clear. His behavior was predictable. And he has turned out to be everything the far right hoped for.
“Democrats believe that women have a constitutional right to make their own decisions about their reproductive health. And we will fight tooth and nail to protect that right.”
