Kavanaugh’s Paradox

“For more than a month, protestors have demonstrated outside of Justice Kavanaugh’s house. The purpose of these gatherings is clear: to pressure the Justice to change his vote in Dobbs. … if Kavanaugh changes his vote to uphold Roe, the protests may stop in the short-term, but will continue in the long-term. Ruth Sent Us can buy a house on Kavanaugh’s block to set up a 24-hour vigil. If Kavanaugh stands by his vote to reverse Roe, the protests in the short-term will continue, but will fade in the long-term. Standing firm will send a clear and unequivocal message that neither fear nor favor will affect the judicial power.” (06/09/22)
