Colorado senators must oppose appointment of Kavanaugh to Supreme Court (letter)

If Brett Kavanaugh is allowed to become the next Supreme Court justice, Americans will be in danger. Roe v. Wade was a landmark case. Abortion rights in this country are already being tested, and we must ensure that they are accessible to everyone.

If my mother hadn't had an abortion of my younger brother at 26 weeks, she would be dead and so would my little sister. My best friend's abortion let her continue onto medical school with no worries after her birth control failed.

Abortion rights are women's rights, and women's rights are human rights. If the GOP could postpone Obama's end-of-term SCOTUS appointment, they can postpone one for midterms. Sens. (Cory) Gardner and (Michael) Bennet must oppose his confirmation until after midterm elections, for the safety of American women!
