Judge Kavanaugh’s ruling would allow unfettered Russian money to pour into our elections on behalf of President Trump. We need a Supreme Court that protects our democracy and elections, not expose them.

Marriage equality and a woman’s right to make her own health choices are two achievements that took years in court to win and are built on decades of precedent. We can’t afford to have that work undone by an ideological justice substituting their own opinion.

We know with the Kavanaugh Supreme Court nomination: protections for Americans living with pre-existing conditions, a woman’s right to choose, and so much more. We won’t go back.

Overturning Roe v. Wade should concern us all. It’s about more than a woman’s right to choose. It’s about personal freedom and the importance of Supreme Court precedent to our democracy.

Make no mistake: Brett Kavanaugh is the next Scott Pruitt, except he’ll have the power of our nation’s highest court behind him. Read my op-ed in on :

“I have a message for Donald Trump: The Constitution does not direct the President to nominate Justices with the advice and consent of the Federalist Society and the Heritage Foundation. The Constitution gives that role to the Senate.”

Precedent guides judges in future cases, ensuring stability in the law. Republican Supreme Court nominees have ignored precedent as soon as they are confirmed, overturning decades of settled law.

We’ve seen this before: a Republican Supreme Court nominee promises to respect precedent during confirmation hearings then proceeds to overturn decades of settled law. Promises from Kavanaugh shouldn’t be enough, we must look at his record.

The fight to — and to protect the right to choose — is at its heart a fight to give women the respect they deserve, to recognize that women’s rights are human rights. That is in this nomination!

Thomas, Alito, Roberts and Gorsuch used the same playbook: 1. Profess loyalty to precedent in Senate hearings 2. Overturn precedent once on the bench. We can’t accept vague promises when so much, from women’s access to health care to marriage equality, is .

Roe v. Wade is about privacy and the Constitutional promise of individual liberty. It’s not just about women’s reproductive rights—it enshrines decades of precedent on personal freedom and is the foundation of future defense of these rights.

Roe v. Wade defends the principle that individuals should be able to make personal decisions according to their beliefs and values. A Supreme Court justice who would vote to overturn Roe strikes at the heart of personal freedom.
