Indiana Right to Life applauds President Donald Trump’s pick of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve on the United States Supreme Court

July 10, 2018

Indiana Right to Life today is applauding President Donald Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve on the United States Supreme Court.

“The nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh gives us hope and encouragement in knowing he will bring a strict judicial philosophy grounded in the text of the Constitution,” states Indiana Right to Life president and CEO Mike Fichter. “Judge Kavanaugh’s dissent in Garza v. Hargan speaks volumes in labeling the majority’s opinion ‘a radical extension of the Supreme Court’s abortion jurisprudence.’”

In Garza v. Hargan, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia voted to allow a minor, in federal custody after being apprehended at the border, to obtain an abortion in the United States.

Fichter notes Indiana has been the target of federal judges exercising similar extensions of the Supreme Court’s radical abortion philosophy through the blockage of multiple Indiana laws over the last two years, including civil rights protections for the unborn based on race, gender, Down syndrome or disability, an 18-hour ultrasound requirement, parental rights to be notified if a young daughter seeks an abortion, required reporting of botched abortions injuring women, and dignified disposal of aborted babies.

“Judge Kavanaugh is extraordinarily qualified for the Supreme Court,” states Fichter. “President Trump is honoring his pledge to America by nominating yet another judicial candidate who will make the Constitution first and foremost in every issue that comes before him.”
