Rep. Lois Frankel (D-Fla.) on Wednesday brought a coat hanger to a briefing to denounce President Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, whose appointment liberals fear could endanger abortion rights.
At the briefing, the Democratic lawmaker held up the metal coat hanger while discussing Kavanaugh and the potential for the Trump nominee to vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark case that guaranteed a woman’s right to an abortion.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I’m alarmed that five men will take us back to these days, I call them days of coat hanger medicine,” Frankel said to reporters, while also discussing a friend she found “nearly dead” at 15 years old after having a “back alley abortion.”
