Here’s an example, courtesy of Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand from New York, speaking on Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh: “I think he’s a dangerous nominee. I think he’s dangerous for women.”
Why? Roe v. Wade.
Gillibrand was speaking about speeches she had heard Kavanaugh give over the years — speeches, mind you, not his judicial decisions, but speeches — and that in those speeches he seemed to oppose the free and unfettered right to abortion she thinks women ought to have.
“I heard many speeches and I think those speeches alone — I think [they] are disqualifying because he doesn’t believe in women’s reproductive freedom,” Gillibrand said, Breitbart reported. “He doesn’t believe that reproductive rights are in the Constitution anywhere.”
Since when did killing unborn babies become a “reproductive freedom,” upheld as an individual right in the Constitution? The left and its crazy lingo — always twisting and turning where sane minds wouldn’t even think of going.
If only the left would engage in factual discourse, absent the hysterics and nonsense. It’s one thing to say, “I can’t support Kavanaugh’s nomination because I believe deeply in a woman’s right to choose,” or “I’m not supporting Kavanaugh because abortion is a deal-breaker for me and he’s not as strong a pro-Roe v. Wader as I’d like.”
But with the left, it’s always life and death.
