FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Kavanaugh Supreme Court Hearings to Proceed Without Key Information on Nominee’s History
August 10, 2018, Washington, DC – The National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) reacted today to the announcement of hearings to be held by the Senate Judiciary Committee on the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. NCJW CEO Nancy K. Kaufman released the following statement:
“Not only the Judiciary Committee and the entire Senate, but the public at large should have access to what Kavanaugh thought about the topics we know he worked on in the White House — torture, block granting Medicaid, privatizing social security, and the Federal Marriage Amendment. From his own writings, we already know of his clearly stated doctrinal hostility to Roe v Wade as well as his skepticism of the Affordable Care Act. And what about his willingness accommodate the religious liberty of some employers while trampling on the religious liberties of their employees?
“Kavanaugh’s nomination will forever be stained by a tainted and corrupt process if it proceeds without considering Kavanaugh’s complete record.”
