The left has many concerns about Kavanaugh.

The right is cheering the nomination.

“For the law in America, a Justice Kavanaugh would mean more restrictions on abortion rights, if not total reversal of Roe v. Wade; fewer university options for affirmative action; greater scrutiny for environmental regulations; and a tougher stance on criminal defendants.”

CNN

Counterpoint: “Today, with the exception of the current justices and Judge Garland, it is hard to name anyone with judicial credentials as strong as those of Judge Kavanaugh.”

New York Times

The right is cheering the nomination.

Kavanaugh has a long, distinguished history of enforcing the Second Amendment, protecting religious liberty, safeguarding free speech, ruling for the American worker, and ruling against radical abortion claims.

National Review

Counterpoint: While “Kavanaugh will likely turn out to be a fine justice… If the court is to take up significant, far-reaching abortion rights cases in the future, any all-male, five-vote majorities from Republican appointees will hurt the credibility of pro-life rulings in the eyes of the public.”

On the bright side...
