Pro-lifers applauded the Senate confirmation on Saturday of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. Liberty Counsel chairman Mat Staver called it a “historic day for this nation,” adding, “This is a great day for America after many days of unnecessary theatrics, delays and character assassination. As Judge Kavanaugh has repeatedly stated, his judicial philosophy is simple—judges must interpret the law, not make it. It is the right of the people, not judges, to amend the Constitution and the laws.”
Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins thanked the senators who refused “to be held hostage to political games and unfounded accusations.” Hawkins called it “tragic that the process broke down to this degree” and vowed that her organization’s staff and student leaders will continue to promote pro-life judges across the country and in the Supreme Court. —S.G.
