Donald Trump fought with everything he had to secure Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.
It looked like all the battling finally paid off.
And Brett Kavanaugh made Donald Trump smile with this courtroom revelation.
When the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, one thing became very clear.
And that was the fact that the six Republican appointees were prepared to uphold Mississippi’s ban on abortions after 15 weeks.
But Brett Kavanaugh appeared to go farther.
During Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings Christine Blasey Ford appeared to come forward with a false allegation of sexual assault to try and derail Kavanaugh’s confirmation over fears Kavanaugh would cast the fifth vote to overturn the wrongly decided 1973 Roe v. Wade case.
Donald Trump initially promised to appoint justices that would overturn Roe and stood by Kavanaugh.
During the hearing Kavanaugh suggested he was willing to go farther than just upholding the Mississippi law by asking the Mississippi Solicitor General Scott Stewart if the state was asking the court to go beyond overturning Roe and declaring all abortion laws unconstitutional.
“To be clear, you’re not arguing that the Court somehow has the authority to, itself, prohibit abortion, or that this Court has the authority to order the states to prohibit abortion, so I understand it, correct?” Kavanaugh asked.
Stewart answered in the affirmative.
Kavanaugh then asked a second question asking Stewart if he disagreed with the fact that if Roe was overturned it would return the question of abortion to the states and Congress and remove the Supreme Court.
“In other words, that the Constitution is neither pro-life nor pro-choice on the question of abortion, but leaves the issue for the people of the states or perhaps Congress to resolve in the democratic process,” Kavanaugh added. “Is that accurate?”
“We’re saying it’s left to the people, Your Honor,” Stewart responded.
Kavanaugh then asked Stewart if a post-Roe world looks like a one-size-fits-all landscape.
“And, so, if you were to prevail, the … majority of states … still could, or presumably would, continue to freely allow abortion. Many states, some states would be able to do that, even if you prevail, under your view, is that correct?” Kavanaugh continued.
Stewart responded that Mississippi was not asking the court to make one definitive national ruling beyond striking down Roe and letting pro-life states pass laws banning abortion.
“That’s consistent with our view, Your Honor,” Stewart answered. “It’s one that allows all interests to have full voice, and many of the abortions we see, in certain states, that I don’t think anybody would think would be moving to change their laws in a more restrictive direction.”
Kavanaugh still left room open for Congress to act.
And Congress could still pass the Life at Conception Act which would guarantee the 14th Amendment protection to unborn babies and stop the horror of abortion on demand across America.
