Trump U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who has served on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals for the past 12 years, once stated during his confirmation hearing that he would “follow Roe v. Wade faithfully and fully” as it is “binding precedent.”

He had been asked by Sen. Chuck Schumer during the 2006 hearing whether he believes Roe v. Wade is “an abomination.”

“On the question of Roe v. Wade, if confirmed to the D.C. Circuit, I would follow Roe v. Wade faithfully and fully. That would be binding precedent of the court,” Kavanaugh replied. “It’s been decided by the Supreme Court.”

Schumer then twice sought to obtain Kavanaugh’s personal view on the Supreme Court ruling, to which Kavanaugh replied that he did not feel it would be appropriate to state his own views.

“I’m saying that if I’m confirmed to the D.C. circuit, senator, I would follow it. It’s been reaffirmed many times, including in Planned Parenthood v. Casey,” he said.
