The 10 Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee have received nearly $130,000 in donations from Planned Parenthood, its affiliates, employees, and their family members since 1990, with Republicans on the panel earning zero.

CNS News cited numbers from The Center for Responsive Politics, which said the following:

— The current Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee have earned $126,886 in Planned Parenthood-related donations.

— Topping the list is Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., who has earned $30,400.

— Ranking Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., has earned $21,710.

— Others earning more than $10,000 include Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., $16,949; Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., $16,715; Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., $11,499; and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., $11,065.

— All current and previous Democratic members of the Judiciary Committee have taken in a combined $244,977 in Planned Parenthood-related donations since 1990.

The ongoing confirmation process for Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh recently hit a snag over sexual misconduct allegations that date back as far as 36 years to when he was in high school. Kavanaugh denies all of the accusations.

Bill O'Reilly told Newsmax TV Monday that he believes the issue of abortion is behind Democrats' opposition to Kavanaugh and the allegations that have been leveled at him.

"The Democratic Party and the progressive left is sending a message: if you oppose unfettered abortion, as I do, we're gonna destroy you. We're gonna turn American women against you because you are an abuser of women if you do not support unfettered abortion," O'Reilly said. "That's what this is all about."
