Congresswoman Lois Frankel (D-FL) made a drastic statement on Wednesday to enunciate her opposition for Brett Kavanaugh‘s nomination to the Supreme Court.

Ever since Kavanaugh was tagged by President Trump, Congressional Democrats have promised staunch opposition to Kavanugh’s confirmation — arguing that the nominee would rollback abortion rights along with many other progressive Supreme Court rulings. Kavanaugh’s position on Roe v. Wade is not as easily defined as it is for others who were on Trump’s SCOTUS short list. But nonetheless, Frankel is making her opposition to Kavanaugh crystal clear.

How you ask?

Yep, Frankel pulled out a coat hanger to denounce Kavanaugh at a pen and pad briefing with journalists. She also reportedly told stories about a friend who almost died from from a back alley abortion decades ago because of limited access to contraception.

Frankel might be taking a leaf out of HuffPost’s playbook, since they used a coat hanger banner on their website weeks ago to lament Roe’s demise after Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his imminent retirement.
