(Worthy News) – Senator Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Planned Parenthood are garnering criticism for misquoting Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s testimony regarding religious groups being compelled to support coverage for abortion-inducing drugs.
Last Friday, Sen. Harris posted a short of Kavanaugh testifying at the Senate Judiciary hearing, claiming that the comments he made showed that he considered birth control to be the same as abortion.
Kavanaugh, a member of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, had authored a dissent against the court’s decision to reject Priests for Life’s petition for an appeal. He explained during the hearing why he supported the group Priests for Life’s argument that the HHS preventive services mandate violated their religious liberty.
“Under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, the question was first was this a substantial burden on their religious exercise, and it seemed to me quite clearly it was,” said Kavanaugh. [ Source: Christian Post (Read More…) ]
