In support of Kavanaugh

EDITOR, Daily News:

I have no knowledge who comprises the Progressive Change Campaign Committee (BoldProgressives.org), Demand Justice (DemandJustice.org), or NARAL Pro-Choice America (ProChoiceAmerica.org), which placed a full-page add in this past weekend’s Ketchikan Daily News threatening Sen. Lisa Murkowski: “Is this how you want to be remembered?”

Perhaps these people are reluctant to disclose their names as being OK with killing unborn children in order to make safe abortions more available even though other ways to do this are quite available, such as adoption. These folks unjustifiably criticize the Honorable Brett Kavanaugh for merely and quite accurately stating the law that legal precedents (court cases that have been decided) can be legally overruled. Further they criticize our president  for nominating this eminently qualified federal judge who has given no indication that he would favor overruling any legal precedent, including Roe v. Wade.

As for Bedminster, New Jersey’s Carol Simon Levin; her letter to the editor also appeared in the same issue of the Daily News urging that Judge Kavanaugh should not be appointed without any good reason. Further, how dare she compare Jude Kavanaugh to the former disrespected Sen. Joseph McCarthy? (Pretty disparate comparison!).

Thus, I, and I suspect many others, urge Sen. Murkowski to support the appointment of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States.
