A George Soros-funded political advocacy group has joined Planned Parenthood and NARAL in their efforts to prevent Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Demand Justice, NARAL Pro-Choice and Planned Parenthood Action Fund announced their nationwide “Rise Up For Roe” tour that will begin Aug. 11 in New York City before continuing on to Boston, Maine, Los Angeles and elsewhere.

The group’s latest addition, Demand Justice, has pledged $5 million to stop Kavanaugh from being confirmed to the Supreme Court. The group was established in the spring of 2018 and is financed by the Sixteen Thirty Fund, a 501(c)(4).

The Daily Caller News Foundation reported on July 16 that the Sixteen Thirty Club has collected over $2 million in contributions from the Open Society Policy Center (OSPC) between 2012 and 2016. OSPC is one of billionaire Soros’ primary donation vehicles. (RELATED: Soros-Linked Group Will Spend Millions To Stop Kavanaugh)

Demand Justice, along with NARAL and Planned Parenthood, is now calling for women in America “to get maximum hysterical,” according to its tour launch video. “If you are a young woman in America, pay close attention to this nomination. Because it will forever change your life,” the video continued.

“It is game time. This is not a drill,” the video finished.

WATCH:

Speakers on the tour will include former Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards, Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, outspoken feminist writer Jessica Valenti, Planned Parenthood vice president Dawn Laguens and others.

Soros has given to a long list of political action groups, including “United For Progress,” the “Change Campaign” and “The Color of Change.” He has also poured money into 2018’s elections in an effort to get Democrats elected to the Senate.
