A new book by Ryan Lovelace reveals something that everyone in the pro-life movement sort of suspected–the accusations against then-Judge Kavanaugh were motivated by the belief that he might one day vote to reverse Roe v. Wade. In fact, the attorney for Christine Blasey Ford publicly admitted that their goal was to put an asterisk on Kavanaugh’s judicial record by accusing him of sexual assault.
The Washington Examiner reports, “Christine Blasey Ford and her feminist attorney were ‘motivated’ in their attack on then-federal judge Brett Kavanaugh by their passion to protect abortion rights, not just their ‘civic duty’ to provide information to senators considering his nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court, according to a new investigative book about the hearings last year.
In Search and Destroy: Inside the Campaign Against Brett Kavanaugh, National Law Journal’s Ryan Lovelace revealed Ford and attorney Debra Katz leveled charges of sexual misconduct in hopes of eventually tainting decisions by Kavanaugh on abortion.”
Lovelace unearthed a video of Katz saying, “In the aftermath of these hearings, I believe that Christine’s testimony brought about more good than the harm misogynist Republicans caused by allowing Kavanaugh on the court. We were going to have a conservative [justice] … elections have consequences, but he will always have an asterisk next to his name. When he takes a scalpel to Roe v. Wade, we will know who he is, we know his character, and we know what motivates him, and that is important; it is important that we know, and that is part of what motivated Christine.”
**This is not to say that Christine Blasey Ford was not sexually assaulted. And it’s not the role of Students for Life to adjudicate her claims.**
That being said, it does not look good when the attorney for a someone accusing a federal judge of sexual assault says that they were motivated by a desire to taint his judicial record and create a talking point in the event Kavanaugh votes to reverse Roe v. Wade.
