Rochelle Garza testifies Friday in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh ignored high court precedents in ruling against an immigrant pregnant teen seeking an abortion, her lawyer and a New York University legal scholar on Friday told the U.S. Senate committee weighing his nomination.

Kavanaugh’s dissenting opinion in Garza v. Hargan has become a major issue for supporters of the landmark abortion decision, Roe v. Wade. The judge disagreed with the en banc majority of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, which ruled the teen’s abortion could go forward despite the Trump administration’s efforts to delay it. The en banc decision reversed an earlier panel ruling by Kavanaugh in which he approved a delay of 11 days in order for the government to continue what had been an unsuccessful search for a sponsor for the teen.
