A Group Of Handmaids Descended On The US Senate For Brett Kavanaugh's Confirmation Hearings

By B. Miller

Confirmation hearings began yesterday for President Trump's Supreme Court pick, Brett Kavanaugh. The proceedings quickly heated up, covering gun control and whether or not Kavanaugh would be sympathetic to Trump should the Mueller investigation indict the sitting president.

But perhaps the biggest issue is whether or not Kavanaugh would try to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-IA) told Kavanaugh he could refuse to answer questions about a specific case, calling it "unfair and unethical."

Grassley said:

It’s my advice to him to follow the example set by Judge Ginsburg... a nominee should offer no hints, no forecasts, no views.

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) cited a dissent in which Kavanaugh openly expressed his views against abortion. The abortion debate has sparked particular outrage among those who oppose Kavanaugh, and protesters showed up to the Senate yesterday to make their opinions known. But they didn't have to say anything to make their point.
