Actress and left-wing activist Jane Fonda says the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh as the next Supreme Court Justice would be a “catastrophe” for women and worker’s rights in the United States.
Addressing a press conference at the coalition of ‘Unstoppable Women Workers,’ Fonda said that Kavanaugh would endanger women’s rights for generations to come.
“I think it will be a catastrophe, frankly, if this nomination goes through, for everyone and our children and unfortunately our grandchildren,” Fonda said. “Look, women’s rights, worker’s rights, will be shunted to the side and that’s just the beginning. It will be a catastrophe.”
On Monday, Trump announced Kavanaugh as his replacement for the retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, describing him as someone with “impeccable credentials, unsurpassed qualifications, and a proven commitment to equal justice under the law.”
