Washington, October 8 (RHC)-- In Washington, D.C., women’s rights activists rallied outside the Supreme Court to call for Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s removal from the bench, one year after Republican senators narrowly confirmed him to the Supreme Court despite multiple credible accusations of attempted rape and sexual assault.
Congressmember Ayanna Pressley introduced a resolution last month to impeach Justice Kavanaugh. She told the crowd she believed Kavanaugh’s accusers — and Anita Hill, who told Congress in 1991 that Justice Clarence Thomas sexually harassed her.
Rep. Ayanna Pressley told reporters: “I still believe Anita Hill. I still believe Dr. Christine Ford. And I believe Deborah Ramirez.”
The rally at the Supreme Court came after justices announced they will weigh the constitutionality of Louisiana’s anti-choice legislation, which requires any doctor performing an abortion to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital.
Pro-choice groups call such statutes TRAP laws, or “targeted regulation of abortion providers”; they say the Louisiana law would leave the state with just a single doctor legally allowed to perform abortions.
