Call you Senators and urge them to oppose the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
We need the votes of every Democrat and just one moderate Republican in order to defeat Kavanaugh. Hearing from constituents will be the deciding factor for a number of Senators. Brush up on your facts and pick up the phone.
Hello, I am a constituent of Senator (name) from (Hometown). I am calling to urge the Senator to vote NO on the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh.
Issues you can mention:
The Affordable Care Act
- Kavanaugh has questioned the constitutionality of the ACA and argued that employers should be allowed to deny birth control coverage to employees. How would ending protections for pre-existing conditions and losing access to free contraception impact you and your family?
Roe v. Wade
- Trump promised to only appoint judges that will overturn Roe v. Wade and Kavanaugh has a record of upholding barriers to abortion access. What does it mean to you if abortion is criminalized in half the states, or impossible to access due to regulations designed to close clinics?
- Kavanaugh has argued that a president should not be subject to civil lawsuits or criminal investigations, and suggested that the Supreme Court case that forced President Nixon to turn over the Watergate tapes was wrongly decided. Do you believe it is the Supreme Court’s job to be a check on executive power, not a rubber stamp?
- Kavanaugh tried to strike down a ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines, arguing they are protected under the Second Amendment. Why is it dangerous for America to have a Supreme Court that toes the line for the NRA?
- Kavanaugh has consistently sided with polluters and against EPA regulations, arguing that protecting the environment imposes burdensome costs on corporations. Who is impacted most by dirty water, air and land?
