Florida U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz says that confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to Supreme Court poses a threat to women's health care.
Wasserman Schultz, a Democrat, plans to hold a news conference Tuesday morning in Sunrise to coincide with the first day of confirmation hearing on Capitol Hill.
Kavanaugh opposes abortion rights and has ruled against the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare.
Big topics of debate during the hearings are expected to be how Kavanaugh interprets legal precedents and whether he would overturn major decisions, namely Roe v Wade, the case that made abortion legal.
Wasserman Schultz will be joined by representatives from the American Cancer Society and Planned Parenthood along with breast cancer survivor Carolyn Newman for her Tuesday conference.
