PANTS ON FIRE: Hillary, Kamala Caught in Lie about Kavanaugh Birth Control Statement

On Wednesday morning, Hillary Clinton again confirmed to America why she lost the 2016 election. She tweeted a blatant lie about President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. A lie pushed by Planned Parenthood and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) that has been debunked by numerous outlets, including The Washington Post and PolitiFact.

"I want to be sure we're all clear about something that Brett Kavanaugh said in his confirmation hearings last week. He referred to birth-control pills as 'abortion-inducing drugs.' That set off a lot of alarm bells for me, and it should for you, too," Clinton tweeted, beginning a thread that should bring her well-deserved mockery.

"Kavanaugh didn't use that term because he misunderstands the basic science of birth control—the fact that birth control prevents fertilization of eggs in the first place. He used that term because it's a dog whistle to the extreme right," the former Democratic nominee for president added.

"When Kavanaugh called birth control "abortion-inducing drugs," he made it clear that safe and legal abortion isn't the only fundamental reproductive right at grave risk if he is confirmed. Access to birth control is, too," the former secretary of State declared.

She then suggested that Kavanaugh's "position" would lead to "The Handmaid's Tale." "Imagine an America ... in which women would be punished for insisting on being full and equal partners in society."

Here's the problem: her entire tirade is built on a horrendously malignant false premise. The lie is easily traced back to Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Planned Parenthood, and just as easily debunked.
