Politifact Corrects Kamala Harris For Lying About Kavanaugh’s Stance On Contraceptives

Politifact ran a fact check on Dem. Senator Kamala Harris’ claim that Brett Kavanaugh believes birth control is an abortion-inducing drug and found that she was wrong.

Harris issued the following tweet on September 7th:

Senator Dianne Feinstein shared Harris’ concerns and had also sent a tweet falsely characterizing Kavanaugh’s comments a day earlier.

As Politifact points out, “Harris’ tweet takes Kavanaugh’s statement out of context. Harris cut an important second out of the clip — the attribution. Kavanaugh said, ‘They said filling out the form would make them complicit in the provision of the abortion-inducing drugs that they were, as a religious matter, objecting to. ‘They’ refers to a Catholic nonprofit group, Priests for Life. Kavanaugh was answering a question from Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, about a case in which he argued Priests for Life shouldn’t have to provide women with the contraceptive coverage mandated by the Affordable Care Act for religious reasons.”

“We rate this statement False,” Politifact says of Harris’ tweet.
