After Senator Chuck Grassley announced the Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a vote on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination Friday morning, NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue issued the following statement:

“The fact that Senator Grassley is moving a vote forward on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination is an abomination. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s retelling of her experience was courageous, clear, and completely believable. To move forward with the process as though Dr. Blasey Ford’s testimony didn’t happen is a direct message to women everywhere that we do not matter. Let me be clear: we will never forget. 

“Before today Kavanaugh had no credibility, considered as too extreme and having already lied under oath. Today’s hearings proved that he is not only unqualified to serve on the Supreme Court, but should be immediately removed from the federal bench. A sexual assaulter has no place in our judiciary, not on the Supreme Court or at any level.”

NARAL Pro-Choice America and its network of state affiliates are dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all Americans. NARAL works to guarantee that every woman has the right to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices, including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and choosing legal abortion. In recognition of its work defending our constitutional right to choose, Fortune Magazine described NARAL as “one of the top 10 advocacy groups in America.”

Everyone should be able to decide if, when, how, and with whom they start or grow a family.
