Kavanaugh Meets Trump’s Litmus Test and Will End Roe v Wade

WASHINGTON - Today, NARAL Pro-Choice America announced a new ad campaign in Alaska, Maine, Colorado, Nevada, and Texas urging the Republican Senators in those states to oppose Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. The six figure ad buy will highlight Trump’s commitment to only appoint justices to the Supreme Court who will end Roe v Wade and criminalize abortion.

You can see the ads here. The ad campaign will include homepage takeovers of the websites:

  • Bangor Daily News
  • Portland Press Herald
  • Central Maine.com
  • Lewiston Sun Journal (ME)
  • The Denver Post
  • The Gazette (CO)
  • Anchorage Daily
  • Las Vegas Sun
  • Houston Chronicle

As well as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Google search ads in each state.

Statement by NARAL President Ilyse Hogue:

“Kavanaugh was chosen because he lives up to Trump’s litmus test and will be a vote to end Roe v. Wade, criminalize abortion, and punish women. These senators hold the keys to women’s futures and our fundamental freedoms in their hands. Either women will continue to have the legal right to decide what happens with our bodies, and a hope to access to safe abortion, or Donald Trump’s Supreme Court will undo centuries of progress where women have been in control of our families and our lives. Donald Trump has been crystal clear, he wants to end Roe v Wade. Kavanaugh is his path to doing so. Now the only question is whether these senators will stand up and fight for women and families or be a rubber stamp on Trump’s agenda. Seven in 10 Americans believe abortion should be legal. We are the majority and those who vote for Kavanaugh, which is a vote to end Roe v. Wade, will be held accountable at the ballot box.”
