NARAL PRO-CHOICE COLORADO: COLORADO’S SENATORS MUST BLOCK TRUMP SUPREME COURT NOMINEE BRETT KAVANAUGH, WHO WOULD OVERTURN AND GUT ROE V. WADE

Denver – Tonight, President Trump named Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee for the Supreme Court. NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado Executive Director Karen Middleton gave the following statement.

“President Trump has said he will only nominate Justices who will overturn and gut Roe v. Wade, and we take him at his word. Judge Kavanaugh recently argued that a young immigrant woman, despite meeting all of Texas’ burdensome requirements to get an abortion, should not be able to exercise her right to choose to terminate her pregnancy. He has also argued against contraception coverage under the Affordable Care Act.

These arguments are not consistent with Colorado values. Colorado is a pro-choice state that strongly supports the right to choose abortion established in Roe v. Wade. Colorado’s US Senators Gardner and Bennet must not just oppose, but actively work to block Judge Kavanaugh from being confirmed to the Court.

The rights and lives of Colorado women depend on it.”
