Politicians, news outlets and pro-choice nonprofits have accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of calling contraceptives “abortion-inducing drugs” during the third day of his Senate hearings last week.

Sen. Cruz asked Kavanaugh about a dissenting opinion he issued in a 2015 case challenging the contraceptives mandate in Obamacare. In the opinion, he expressed sympathy for the Catholic organization Priests for Life.

Kavanaugh responded to the question by sharing the stance of the pro-life organization. His response, however, was taken out of context by Democrats and some news outlets to suggest that he referred to contraceptives as “abortion-inducing drugs.”

Even Hillary Clinton shared the narrative about Kavanaugh despite it already being debunked. (RELATED: Hillary Clinton Tweets Debunked Hit Job On Brett Kavanaugh)
