Well, this is a big old red flag. And an anti-science lie.
In hearings to confirm his seat on the United States Supreme Court, Judge Brett Kavanaugh refers to birth control as "abortion-inducing drugs."
"Judge Kavanaugh just said Burwell v. Hobby Lobby was about 'abortion-inducing drugs,'" tweeted Senator Diane Feinstein.
"That's a GROSS misunderstanding of the case, which was about insurance coverage for contraceptives. It's further proof of Kavanaugh's hostility toward women's reproductive freedom."
What's at stake is women's lives.
Kavanaugh just called birth control "abortion-inducing drugs" in reference to Burwell v Hobby Lobby.
The crux of the dispute in Hobby Lobby was against emergency contraception like Plan B.

Kavanaugh just referred to birth control as "abortion-inducing drugs," which is not only an anti-science lie, it's an anti-choice extremist phrase that shows that our right to access both abortion and contraception would be in SERIOUS danger if he is confirmed. #StopKavanaugh pic.twitter.com/TWqaU0YjmH

Kavanaugh just called birth control "abortion inducing drugs."
I'm here to say Kavanaugh is a "terror-inducing candidate."

A bit of background on this: Priests for Life was opposed to covering contraception including IUDs, which Priests for Life referred to as an "abortion-inducing drug." Kavanaugh misstated the plaintiff's stance, but he did not generally call birth control "abortion-inducing drugs" https://t.co/hP4inshPsM

Kavanaugh: "They said filling out the form would make them complicit in the provision of the abortion-inducing drugs that they…objected to." The case he's referring to was about the birth control mandate. Birth control =/= abortifacients. https://t.co/PxrHQSae4R
