WASHINGTON D.C. (07-09-18)– Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins called President Trump’s choice of Judge Brett Kavanaughto be confirmed as the next Supreme Court justice “a bold choice for the high court as Judge Brett Kavanaugh will bring balance to the court in background and in judicial temperament. JudgeBrett Kavanaughrecord of respect for the law is vital as so many activists attempt to use the courts to push their own social agendas. In no other election has the Supreme Court been so clearly front and center, and voters now expect the U.S. Senate to follow through on this confirmation. This is no surprise selection. President Trump’s list of potential nominees has been available for all to examine, and in choosing Brett Kavanaugh, he is keeping a promise to the American people.”
In the coming weeks, SFLA will announce details of a strategic campaign in key states including North Dakota, Indiana, West Virginia, Maine, Missouri, Alaska, and Florida in which students and pro-life leaders will rally, lobby and call on U.S. Senators to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaughto the Supreme Court. “We are prepared for the ground game of this confirmation,” said Hawkins, “and we will be networking with students nationwide, equipping them to make their voices heard.”

Hawkins noted that Judge Brett Kavanaugh is well qualified for the role of Supreme Court Justice.
Judge Brett Kavanaugh, a former clerk to Justice Kennedy, has a long record of careful consideration of the law, rather than judicial overreach. As reported in The Federalist, “Over 12 years and 300 opinions, he has repeatedly fought for principles of textualism and originalism, reined in regulatory overreach, and ensured that administrative bureaucrats are accountable to the elected president.” His record of respecting the viewpoints of people of faith, especially when it comes to things like contraception, can be seen in his ruling in favor of Priests for Life when the objected to the Obamacare.
