This week, President Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh to replace Justice Kennedy on the Supreme Court. Kavanaugh has ruled against the rights to birth control and abortion throughout his career.

Together we will continue to hold all countries, including United States, accountable to their legal human rights obligations.
