|Page Gardner, president and founder of Women’s Voices Women Vote Action Fund, released the following statement after President Trump announced his nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court:
“In Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Donald Trump has nominated a potential Supreme Court judge who will destroy voting rights, criminalize abortion, and end health care protections for Americans with pre-existing conditions. Judges should respect fundamental rights and our democracy, but unmarried women and the rest of the Rising American Electorate – people of color and young people – will be targeted by Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court if he is confirmed. Millions of the Rising American Electorate will potentially lose access to quality, affordable health care and the ballot box as a result of Trump’s nomination today.
“Kavanaugh is far outside the mainstream and will be the deciding vote to increase barriers to voting and to revoke health care for millions in the Rising American Electorate if he is confirmed. The Senate must vote down this nomination.”
