On Monday, Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh voted with the majority to not review cases involving Planned Parenthood. A divided court turned down appeals backed by 13 conservative states that aimed to defund Planned Parenthood.
The cases, Gee v. Planned Parenthood and Andersen v. Planned Parenthood, don’t directly touch on abortion, but rather concern the question of a individual’s right to sue the state if it decides to not allow Medicaid to cover expenses at Planned Parenthood specifically.
In the U.S. it is illegal in most cases to use federal money like Medicaid to pay for abortions, but these states wanted to go further, cutting off all Medicaid funding to Planned Parenthood because the association performs abortions among other health services.
Kavanaugh’s vote against hearing the case was notable since it was his first abortion-related case. Many Christian fundamentalists supported Kavanaugh’s confirmation because of his pro-life views.
Now they are disappointed and furious – and they’re out for Kavanaugh’s blood.
And once again, Christians should be reminded: "It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes." – Psalm 118:8-9 The outrage is the evidence of misplaced trust, hope, and confidence. #Kavanaugh

World Net Daily‘s Joseph Farah writes, “Now we know, for certain, that Brett Kavanaugh is a fraud. He should never have been President Trump’s first choice. He’s a weakling. He buckled to the extreme left to salvage his own reputation. I had a bad feeling about this guy – ever since his role in the Vincent Foster cover-up and his tutelage by former independent counsel Kenneth Starr.”
If you were frustrated by the news yesterday, there are a few important things to keep in mind. Don't panic about our newest U.S. Supreme Court justice. Most importantly, we have a lot more work to do! https://t.co/ZvTVSlwKfK #prolife #DefundPP pic.twitter.com/PTfQcoYUSc
