“It’s a Very Scary Time for Women”: Cecile Richards on Brett Kavanaugh and the Future of Roe v. Wade

President Trump has nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill Anthony Kennedy’s seat on the Supreme Court. While running for president, Trump openly vowed to only nominate justices who will overturn Roe v. Wade. Last year, Judge Brett Kavanaugh ruled against an undocumented teenager who sought to have an abortion while in federal detention. He said allowing the abortion would make the government “complicit” in something that is morally objectionable. DN! speaks with Cecile Richards, former president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America and the Planned Parenthood Action Fund.
