Kavanaugh’s place on the Supreme Court means our rights and freedoms are on the line — including the constitutional right to access abortion

Trump promised to appoint justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade — the legal case that guarantees the right to access safe, legal abortion. Amid protest from women's rights advocates, Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court in October 2018. He stands to sway the Supreme Court’s balance away from our constitutional right to abortion and could threaten our voting rights, access to health care, and more.

72% of voters oppose overturning Roe v. Wade.

Who sits on this court will determine the course of our history — and the course of millions of people’s lives.

Supreme Court justices are the final safeguard for our most basic rights and freedoms. Neil Gorsuch — whom Trump nominated and the Senate confirmed to the Supreme Court just last year — was a deciding vote in the Court’s decisions to uphold the discriminatory Muslim ban, strip people of their right to vote, weaken workers’ rights, and empower fake women’s health centers.

We cannot allow our children and grandchildren to have fewer rights than we do today.
