Who is Brett Kavanaugh?
Go on and admit it; you were waiting with baited breath to see who President Trump would select as his Supreme Court nominee, weren’t you? Of course, you were! This was an important decision that many in the pro-life community had been anticipating. Now we have it. The President has nominated, Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Who is he? Mr. Kavanaugh is a judge for the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. He previously served as White House Staff Secretary during the presidency of George W. Bush. Mr. Kavanaugh is a strong family man, married with two daughters. He is also a very active member of his faith community and takes time out of his busy schedule to serve the homeless.
Are there any concerns about Judge Kavanaugh from the pro-life community?
Let’s face it, when it comes to Supreme Court nominees, the pro-life community has had more than ample reasons for caution and concern. When a new nominee like Judge Kavanaugh is presented, it’s wise to take the time and consider whether there are any concerns in his record or body of work. For all intents and purposes, there is nothing to report when it comes to Mr. Kavanaugh’s record. In fact, there is plenty to get excited about. Looking at his record on abortion, free speech, and religious liberty, it seems like the pro-life community is getting quite the upgrade from Justice Kennedy!Are there any concerns about Judge #BrettKavanaugh from the #ProLife community?

Good news: the pro-abortion crowd hates Judge Kavanaugh.
As nice as it would be to see a Supreme Court nominee of Judge Kavanaugh’s caliber warmly accepted by all of our nation’s leaders, it’s helpful to remember that there is a reason why he’s facing early opposition. It doesn’t take much research to find that Judge Kavanaugh is opposed by all who call themselves “pro-choice.” Just because he’s facing opposition from the other side, doesn’t mean he’s perfect, but it is a good sign!
While it’s not a slam dunk, Judge Kavanaugh’s chances to be confirmed are good.
As the initial excitement over Judge Kavanaugh’s appointment winds down, it’s a good time to consider his chances when it comes to confirmation. When it comes to filling a Supreme Court vacancy, it’s the President’s responsibility to nominate a candidate, and it’s the United States Senate’s job to approve or reject that nominee by a simple majority vote. While it’s no slam dunk, early indications suggest Judge Kavanaugh will make it through the confirmation process to be seated as the next Supreme Court justice. Make sure to contact your senators and press them to support Judge Kavanaugh!While it’s not a slam dunk, Judge #BrettKavanaugh’s chances are good to be confirmed by the U.S. #Senate, learn more on this informative episode of the #40DaysForLife #podcast!
