On her show last night, Rachel Maddow and her crack research team unveiled courtroom audio of Bret Kavanaugh attempting to sway a three judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit into accepting his not so stealthy plan to prevent a 17 year old detained immigrant teen's lower court approved right to obtain a legal abortion by forcing the girl, who was already at least 15 weeks pregnant, to comply with his plan to have her first obtain a sponsor who might approve the procedure and then reapply to the lower courts to seek re-approval of what she had already obtained (which would again be subject to appeal by federal prosecutors) before having the procedure.
Texas, where the girl was held outlaws any abortion after 20 weeks, setting an unrealistic month long window for his convoluted “solution” to play out.
Kavanaugh’s plan was rejected by the panel of his peers and the 17 year old did manage to end the pregnancy, which Kavanaugh clearly desired to prevent.
Kudos to Rachel and her crew at MSNBC for breaking this story.
