• Blasey Ford’s Lawyer Admits: Attack on Brett Kavanaugh Had Something to Do with Abortion Issue

    Surge Summary: The lawyer for Brett Kavanaugh accuser Blasey Ford confesses her client came after the Supreme Court nominee, in part, over concerns his confirmation might threaten abortion rights.

    Turns out, California professor Christine Blasey Ford, who created a firestorm one year ago by accusing then-Supreme Court Justice nominee (now Supreme Court Justice) Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, was partially motivated to come forward because of her opposition to Kavanaugh’s stance on abortion. This according to the attorney who represented her during the proceedings.

    The attorney, Debra Katz, made the revelation in a video obtained by The Daily Caller. Her comments were first reported by Ryan Lovelace, author of the upcoming book “Search and Destroy: Inside the Campaign Against Brett Kavanaugh.” Katz represented Ford when she testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

    Katz’s disclosure came last April at the University of Baltimore’s 11th Feminist Legal Theory Conference (Hey! That sounds like a not-to-be-missed funfest!)

    She said the following:

    “In the aftermath of these hearings, I believe that Christine’s testimony brought about more good than the harm misogynist Republicans caused by allowing Kavanaugh on the court. We were going to have a conservative [justice] … elections have consequences, but he will always have an asterisk next to his name. When he takes a scalpel to Roe v. Wade, we will know who he is, we know his character, and we know what motivates him, and that is important”

    “Takes a scalpel to Roe”? That’s an interesting turn of phrase from someone jubilating over legalized abortions.

    The lawyer then dropped this bombshell:

     “[I]t is important that we know, and that is part of what motivated Christine.”

    Sure would have been nice to know that piece of information while Ms. Blasey Ford was falsely maligning the nominee.

    Pro-abortion enthusiasts were, mind you, terrified a Kavanaugh’s confirmation would imperil Roe v. Wade, dismantling the federally bestowed “right” to kill one’s offspring in the womb.

    When her accusation initially aired in September 2018, Ford said she was coming forward out of a sense of “civic responsibility.”

    Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings were much less about his credentials as a judge, and primarily about his character and alleged behavior as a high school and college student. Despite Ford’s accusation, and several other unsubstantiated allegations, Kavanaugh was confirmed by the Senate last year.

    What is going to happen re legalized child-murder in the United States remains to be seen, but a good man’s reputation has been gleefully – and baselessly – besmirched because of one side’s passion for the ghoulish act.

    Another victim of “abortion”? Of course, if one is copacetic with taking the life of an unborn human being, what’s the big deal about unjustifiably ruining another person’s name, right?
