Tell Susan Collins to Save Reproductive Rights
0 have signed. Let’s get to 75,000!
We are facing the most serious threat to abortion rights in 45 years.
With the retirement of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, President Trump has fulfilled his campaign promise to nominate a highly conservative judge who could overturn Roe v. Wade by nominating Judge Brett Kavanaugh. His nomination could give states the right to outlaw abortion -- ending the right to safe and legal abortion for women across the country. As a mother of two, I had the right and privilege to choose the size and timing of my family; it terrifies me that my sons, nieces, and nephews may not have the same.
But there's still a chance to protect reproductive rights. My senator, Republican Senator Susan Collins, could have the deciding vote on Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination for the court – will you join me in asking her to reject his nomination?
If Sen. Collins doesn't block Judge Kavanaugh, it’s likely that over 20 states could quickly enact severe restrictions or complete bans on abortion. This means women who can afford it will have to travel out of state to get the care they need. But many won't be able to afford it – which could lead to significant increases in injury and death due to people attempting to terminate their own pregnancies. As the rest of the world progresses forward, we can not stand for the United States to go back.
If all 49 Democratic senators vote against Judge Kavanaugh, just one more vote could block their nomination and save access to legal abortion. Sen. Collins is just the person to cast that critical vote.
Our reproductive rights have never been in more danger than they are right now. Sign now to tell Senator Collins she must reject Judge Kavanaugh and preserve the right for millions of women to obtain safe and legal access to reproductive care. Remind Collins that however she votes, this will be her LASTING legacy to her country.
