WASHINGTON, D.C., July 9 – Following Donald Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh for the U.S. Supreme Court, AFJ President Nan Aron released the following statement:

“Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court would result in grave harm to the American people. We already know that Kavanaugh meets Donald Trump’s two main criteria for a Supreme Court nominee: that he will vote to undermine Roe v. Wade and take health insurance away from millions. It is unconscionable and tragic that the fulfillment of these pledges will cause untold suffering. Not only that, but Kavanaugh has established a record that shows his lack of commitment to consumers’ rights, workers’ rights, clean air and water, and the fundamental principle that no President is above the law. His confirmation would definitively shift the balance of the Court and turn the clock back on our rights and liberties for the next generation.”
