In response to the news of sexual misconduct allegations concerning Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Reproaction co-directors Erin Matson and Pamela Merritt released the following statement:
Reproaction opposes the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The deeply upsetting allegation that he held a woman down during an encounter at a party, attempted to force himself upon her, and covered her mouth with his hand does not change our opposition to his nomination.
We stand with survivors of sexual violence.
It has been 27 years since Clarence Thomas was confirmed to the Supreme Court, following humiliation and mistreatment of Anita Hill by leaders in both parties.
To the senators who have failed to come out and publicly oppose Kavanaugh’s nomination — just what in the hell are you waiting for?
