Selectively leaked emails reportedly show that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh previously questioned whether there was a public consensus that the controversial Roe v. Wade case was “settled law,” according to The New York Times. The Times, unsurprising to many, is apparently using the email to argue against Kavanaugh, who is now being attacked by liberals with their pitchforks for simply having an open mind on a major issue.
When considered the actual email, all it really shows is that the potential Justice honestly understood that the sides are still extremely divided on the abortion issue. But, somehow, to many democrats, that equates him with some sort of troglodyte who must be annihilated.
Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump‘s nominee to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court, reportedly questioned in a 2003 email, when he was the White House counsel, whether the legal experts ‘collectively’ agreed that the abortion case was settled and should remain the law of the land for ever.
Based on the email, Kavanaugh only questioned the general consensus of the opinion that it’s “settled law,” which is a legitimate idea. Having an actual honest assessment of Roe v. Wade is apparently enough to make liberals go utterly insane.
In the 2003 email provided by the Times, Kavanaugh proposed deleting a sentence in the draft of an opinion piece that stated, “it is widely accepted by legal scholars across the board that Roe v. Wade and its progeny are the settled law of the land.”
Kavanaugh, as detailed in the email, only questioned whether legal scholars “across the board” actually agreed that the controversial 1973 case ruling that women have a legal right to abortion was settled law.
“I am not sure that all legal scholars refer to Roe as the settled law of the land at the Supreme Court level since Court can always overrule its precedent, and three current Justices on the Court would do so,” Kavanaugh wrote in the email, according to the Times.
That’s it — that’s all he wrote.
Yet, the Times portrays Kavanaugh as nefariously plotting to undermine the case if he is placed onthe High Court in the coming weeks.
The Times hit piece seems to frame Kavanaugh as some sort of madman for suggesting that every legal expert may not collectively view the case as being “settled law.”
The Supreme Court hears new cases all the time, many of which may challenge the previous precedent set by the nation’s highest court.
As such, Kavanaugh — being a strict Constitutional originalist who analyzes cases based on the law, not emotion — simply said that he did not know if Roe v. Wade is viewed by everyone has been settled.
Why is that bad?
Many would agree that the liberal paper is using the email to ratchet up left-wing talking points, and they are blowing it out of proportion to satisfy their unholy need to ensure innocent life is murdered.
To many people, it’s quite ironic to see Kavanaugh — a devout Christian and man of faith — is being smeared for questioning a case that allows all women to get an abortion, yet liberals have hardly ever been rebuked for supporting the practice of killing innocent babies.
