Two years ago, I sat down with several others to watch Brett Kavanaugh testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the sexual crimes he’d been accused of. We watched him break down as Democratic vultures sifted through the rubble of his reputation, determined to destroy him and derail his nomination to the Supreme Court. Glancing at the others watching with me, I realized he wasn’t the only one who had broken down. The reason that Kavanaugh’s testimony was such a powerful and significant moment was that, for many, it was the moment they realized that the Democrats would stop at nothing to protect the abortion industry.
In fact, Christine Blasey Ford’s attorney Debra Katz all but said so a year later at the University of Baltimore’s 11th Feminist Legal Theory Conference in a talk titled “Applied Feminism and #MeToo.”
“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,” Katz told the audience.
