Press Release

Today, Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky released the following statement in response to President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States:

“Brett Kavanaugh is about as extreme right-wing and political as a judge in the United States today can be. From the bench, he has consistently ruled in favor of corporations over workers, opposed Obamacare and its protections for more than 130 million Americans living with pre-existing conditions, and attacked the right of women to control their own bodies and their health. Just last year, he attempted to block a young detained immigrant woman’s right to an abortion.

“This is not a drill. Brett Kavanaugh is as bad as it gets. Women’s rights, worker’s rights, LBTQ rights, civil rights, immigrant rights, voting rights, access to health care, environmental protections, and much more are at stake. We must stop Kavanaugh.”
