Hillary Clinton on Wednesday repeated a Democratic talking point about Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s use of the phrase “abortion-inducing drugs” — a claim that has been repeatedly debunked by fact-checkers.

“I want to be sure we’re all clear about something that Brett Kavanaugh said in his confirmation hearings last week,” she tweeted. “He referred to birth-control pills as “abortion-inducing drugs.” That set off a lot of alarm bells for me, and it should for you, too.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Kavanaugh, at his Supreme Court confirmation hearing on Thursday was asked about a case he ruled on involving Priests for Life, a pro-life group that was challenging ObamaCare’s contraceptive mandate that the group said violated its religious beliefs.

“That was a group that was being forced to provide certain kind of health coverage over their religious objection to their employees. And under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, the question was first, was this a substantial burden on the religious exercise? And it seemed to me quite clearly it was,” Kavanaugh told lawmakers on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“It was a technical matter of filling out a form in that case,” he said. “In that case, they said filling out the form would make them complicit in the provision of the abortion-inducing drugs that were, as a religious matter, objected to.”

Fox News continue their report:

After a wave of criticism, particularly from the White House and Republicans, Harris tweeted out a fuller version of the video, but stood by her claim that it was a “dog whistle terms used by extreme anti-choice groups to describe birth control.”

But the claim drew criticism not just from Republicans, but also from fact-checkers — which were scathing in their analysis of the Democratic talking point. 

“Did Brett Kavanaugh call birth control abortion-inducing drugs? No” read the headline of Politifact’s fact check — which rated the statement “False.” 

“In Harris’ tweet, Kavanaugh appears to define contraception as abortion-inducing. But the video failed to include a crucial qualifier: ‘They said.’ In fact, he was citing the definition of the religious group Priests for Life. He has not expressed his personal view,” Politifact’s check said.

The Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler said that “it’s pretty clear from the context that he was quoting the views of the plaintiffs rather than offering a personal view.” He said that original tweet by Harris “was slightly mitigated” by the tweet offering fuller context, but still gave the claim “Four Pinnochios.”

Clinton blasted out multiple posts on Twitter Wednesday morning repeating the already-debunked claims.
