ABC’s Terry Moran: If Two Credibly Accused SCOTUS Justices Overturn Roe v. Wade, It Won’t Be Legitimate

ABC News chief foreign correspondent Terry Moran believes that if Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed to the Supreme Court, and the Court subsequently overturns Roe v. Wade, the decision would be illegitimate.

Appearing Thursday night on ABC, Moran said that a reversal of the landmark decision from a body which counts among its membership two Justices who have credible sexual misconduct allegations against them — Kavanaugh and Clarence Thomas — could not be considered legitimate.

“Overturning Roe v. Wade by an all-male majority — two of whom have had credible accusations of sexual misconduct lodged against them — would not be a legitimate action. And that is the question of the Court, legitimacy. It has always had a very high place in the American popular opinion. And it could lose it if it loses legitimacy.”

Moran also said Kavanaugh “had better take into that lifetime appointment a sense of the woundedness of so many people in the country, and factor that in his decisions.”
