NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado Thanks Sen Bennet For Representing Colorado Voters and Values With No Vote On Kavanaugh, Gardner Should Do The Same

Denver – In response to Senator Michael Bennet’s (D-CO) announcement this morning that he will be a “no” vote on President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado Executive Director Karen Middleton issued the following statement:

“On behalf of our 56,000 members statewide, NARAL thanks Senator Bennet for reflecting Colorado voters and values with a no vote on Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination. Senator Bennet is absolutely correct – Judge Kavanaugh is a threat to our reproductive rights and represents a direct threat to gut and overturn Roe v. Wade. Judge Kavanaugh has made it clear through public statements and emails that he opposes Roe and the Constitutional right to choose abortion. This is a right that Coloradans have consistently voted to support for generations.

We’re calling on Senator Gardner to listen to his constituents, not play partisan politics, and vote no on Judge Kavanaugh as well. Colorado has been a pro-choice state for more than 50 years. We believe strongly in the right to choose and the right to keep politicians out of our personal, private medical decisions. Senator Gardner should know that voting for a Supreme Court Justice who will overturn Roe v. Wade is a slap in the face to our Colorado values.”
