‘It is an important precedent’ says Kavanaugh on Roe v Wade


Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh faced new scrutiny Thursday over a leaked memo where he appeared to question the argument that landmark Roe v. Wade ruling was widely considered ‘settled law.’ Kavanaugh wrote in a 2003 memo that ‘I am not sure that all legal scholars refer to Roe as the settled law of the land.’ He was asked about the memo and whether that was in fact his own view. ‘Settled law’ is frequently invoked as a basis for maintaining court precedents like rulings that have upheld Roe. The issue is critical to whether Kavanaugh gets the support of two GOP women senators.
