Kavanaugh nod touches off Supreme Court confirmation battle; Dems warn of 'deaths of countless women'

President Trump's nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to replace retiring Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy has set the stage for a bruising confirmation battle, as Senate Democrats and liberal groups vowed to resist what could be a dramatic and long-lasting rightward shift on the Supreme Court.

Within seconds of Trump's announcement in the White House Monday night, the far-left political action committee Democracy for America called Kavanaugh, 53, a "reactionary ideologue" whose confirmation would "directly lead to the deaths of countless women with the dismantling of abortion rights."

And in a statement, the Women's March said ominously: "Trump’s announcement today is a death sentence for thousands of women in the United States."

"Stripping a woman’s ability to make decisions about her own body is state violence," the group continued. "We cannot let this stand. We will raise our voices and take to the streets."
In an embarrassing blunder, though, the Women's March statement began: "In response to Donald Trump's nomination of XX to the Supreme Court" -- indicating that the group didn't expect to have to change its pre-written press release much on Monday night.

Oh, c'mon Dems, give us a real number and causes of death. We'll rely on the facts and the science and not your frantic hyperbole.

Like a flock of Chicken Littles
The sky is falling
If they were worried about the welfare of women they would grow some nads and keep the illegal criminals out.
They fail to focus on real life and depend on scaring people through rhetoric. You would think that loosing a national election by doing that they would learn. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and getting the same result! Enough Said.

Do what you will regarding abortion. Just don't bitch and moan when these women who wanted to terminate the pregnancy then ask ya'll to help take care of the kid. You could make birth control more accessible.....oh that's right, ya'll don't want that.

Women should take responsibility for their bodies and use birth control.

The deaths they are referring to are poor democrat women, so we do need less of them anyway, so who cares. Sounds like a win to me!
