Leading Contender to be Trump’s Supreme Court Pick Faces Questions from Social Conservativesposted on July 6, 2018
The Washington Post‘sRobert Costa and Josh Dawsey report that some social conservatives are critical about Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, a frontrunner for the president’s Supreme Court nomination. They write, “Kavanaugh’s critics have pointed to a recent case involving a pregnant immigrant teenager in federal custody as reason to doubt his conservatism on the abortion front.” Though he voted against the teenager receiving abortion services, critics say he did not oppose abortion as strongly as another judge in the case. He has also been criticized on the right for decisions on healthcare and contraception access.
