Rep. Lois Frankel (D-FL) on Wednesday brought a coat hanger to a briefing to protest Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's latest Supreme Court pick who has ruled against abortion rights for women.

At a pen and pad briefing on Wednesday, Frankel explained that the coat hanger was in memory of a friend who "nearly died" in a back-ally abortion at the age of 15.

“I’m alarmed that five men will take us bad to these days, I call them days of coat hanger medicine," Frankel said.
