Tell the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade. Sign the petition here.

WASHINGTON, D.C., October 10, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – As the dust clears from the three-month battle to confirm Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, the nation’s largest abortion committer is putting out the call for a specialist committed to defeating future judicial nominees.

The Senate voted 50-48 to confirm Kavanaugh on Saturday.  He was officially sworn in hours later at a private ceremony, then publicly Monday evening at the White House.

The posting on Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s (PPFA) website says that its new Director of Judicial Nominations will work full-time in the nation’s capital to devise and carry out “year-long national and state advocacy plans focused on high impact, high priority judicial nominations in the lower courts” as well as “in-state 360 campaigns that hold Senators accountable for appointing judges that value and protect access to abortion”; and “create a clear path for defeat and delay of targeted nominations.”

This person will also lead research and analysis of nominees’ cases, writings, “personal and professional beliefs, associations, and memberships,” as well as “general opposition research” to identify potential “vulnerabilities.” The position’s other duties include persuading the public of the link between nomination fights and PPFA’s policy goals and the “overall Trump agenda, and to the consequences of lifetime appointments of extremist judges to the future of progressive rights.”

Naturally, the posting says an ideal candidate would have an “established history working with the Senate Judiciary committee.” Notably, its language implies a focus on lower courts instead of the Supreme Court, and does not discuss the promotion of PPFA-approved nominees.

Planned Parenthood posted the notice to LinkedIn almost a month ago but to Daybook October 7, possibly suggesting the abortion giant has been seeking to hire someone for some time but doubled its efforts in response to the anti-Kavanaugh forces’ failure.

Live Action notes that this Judicial Nominations Director is to report to the National Director of Legislative Affairs in PPFA’s Office of the Vice President of Policy and Government Relations, an office currently headed by veteran Democrat operative Dana Singiser.

Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion groups aggressively tried to derail Kavanaugh’s confirmation from the beginning, out of fear he might provide the fifth vote to finally overturn Roe v. Wade. They lobbied senators to block him within days of his announcement, attacked him during his confirmation hearings for accurately stating that legal scholars disagree about Roe and that some contraceptives are abortifacients, and threatened to be “LOUD” and “NOISY” while “coming for” senators who voted “yes.”

After Kavanaugh’s confirmation, Planned Parenthood’s executive vice president Dawn Laguens and former CEO Cecile Richards encouraged their followers to “unleash your rage […] every day,” and to “stay angry” because “you will need all your anger now.”
