The Real Basis for Anti-Kavanaugh Hysteria

Hysterical opposition to Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court isn’t based on the alleged sexual assault of a teenager in the distant past; it’s based on fears of judicial assault on the purported “right to abortion” in the near future.

The determination to defeat Kavanaugh started long before Christine Blasey Ford’s charges, and stems from the misinformed idea that any revision in Roe v. Wade would render abortion illegal in every state of the union. In fact, even a full reversal of Roe v. Wade would give states more choice, not less, when it comes to regulating abortion.

There is no chance that every abortion would become illegal, just as under Roe no state has made every abortion legal. In the end, Americans can only come to terms with this complex issue by trusting the people of each state to make their own decisions through their elected legislatures.
