As the world watches the hearings today one can’t help but see the attacks on Kavanaugh as a desperate attempt to derail the confirmation of a Justice who might agree that Roe versus Wade is not “settled law” (no law is technically settled by the way) and that under the Constitution abortion is a state issue and not a federal one.
As such it is not unreasonable to think that there are people who think they are doing the right (in their minds, where abortion is a right) thing by attacking Judge Kavanaugh with everything they have.
On the other hand perhaps Ms. Blasey-Ford is coming forward out of real and legitimate concern. That is possible. But she’s got real problems with her story.

In another inconsistency, Ford told The Washington Post she was upset when Trump won in 2016, because Kavanaugh was mentioned as a Supreme Court pick. But Kavanaugh wasn’t added to Trump’s list of possibles until November 2017, a full year later.
On top of all that, Kavanaugh “unequivocally denied Dr. Ford’s allegations . . . under penalty of perjury” during a Sept. 17 interview with committee lawyers, Grassley said, adding he was “forthright and emphatic in his testimony” and “fully answered all questions.”
