Sure, Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court would represent a generational shift to the right. President Trump has said he would select a Supreme Court nominee - a lifetime appointment - who would vote to overturn Roe vs. Wade.
"Under Judge Kavanaugh's recommendation, if a president shot somebody in cold blood on Fifth Ave., that president could not be prosecuted while in office", Dean told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Friday.
Abortion was a focus throughout Kavanaugh's two days of testimony. The senator then repeated a Democratic refrain that an appointment to the Supreme Court deserves proper vetting and the confirmation hearing is incomplete without Kavanaugh's White House documents.
On divisive issues that could reach the court such as abortion and gun rights, Kavanaugh declined to offer personal views, restricting himself to reciting Supreme Court precedent.
Kavanaugh said that he is not "involved in the documents process" and does not "know what's in them". Outbursts from protesters opposing the nominee punctuated the hearing, and police took dozens from the room.
"Careful consideration of potential justices for our nation's highest court is understandable and even commendable", said Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC).
"Brett Kavanaugh is eminently qualified, and attempts to fashion him as some partisan Trojan horse ignore a career marked by judicial restraint and faithfulness to the Constitution", Moore told Baptist Press in written comments.

Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) also released committee confidential documents Thursday morning, writing on Twitter that "they show that Judge Kavanaugh wrongly believes that Native Hawaiian programs are Constitutionally questionable". The ERLC sponsored the document.
Kavanaugh's record as an appellate judge has received favorable reviews from almost all pro-life and religious freedom advocates.
Just minutes before the committee gaveled into session for the third day of hearings, the New York Timesprinted leaked confidential documents from Kavanaugh's stint in the George W Bush White House, in which he questioned whether the Roe v Wade decision on abortion was the "settled law of the land".
In an email released with the documents, Kavanaugh favors "effective security measures that are race-neutral", but measures on that topic must be dealt with before any comprehensive standards can come into effect.
Leahy asked committee chairman Sen.
Kavanaugh also said Thursday: "I haven't had any inappropriate conversations about that investigation with anyone", adding he had not "given anyone any winks, hints, forecasts, previews, nothing, about my view as a judge, or how I would rule as a judge on that or anything related to that".
In his opening statement September 4, the nominee said, "My judicial philosophy is straightforward".
In its final day of the hearing, the committee on September 7 heard from outside witnesses testifying for and against the nomination, with protesters again interrupting the proceedings in opposition to Kavanaugh.
The American Bar Association has given the nominee a rating of "unanimously well-qualified". He nominated Neil Gorsuch in January 2017, and the Senate confirmed the federal appeals court judge in a 54-45 vote.
