NARAL PRO-CHOICE COLORADO: SEN CORY GARDNER HAS A CLEAR CHOICE ON KAVANAUGH: BELIEVE SEXUAL ASSAULT SURVIVORS OR SIDE WITH THEIR ABUSER

Denver – NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado Executive Director Karen Middleton issued the following statement on Senator Cory Gardner’s potential confirmation vote on Trump nominee Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court:

“We believe Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and Julie Swetnick. Senator Gardner has a clear choice with this confirmation vote: believe sexual assault survivors, including his own constituent Deborah Ramirez, or side with a nominee who has clearly lied under oath.

Sen. Pat Leahy (D-Vt.), one of few Senators to have voted on the confirmation of every sitting member of the current Supreme Court, has said that he believes Kavanaugh has given “untruthful testimony, under oath and on the record.”

Dr. Ford told the truth. Brett Kavanaugh did not. His nomination remains an insult to women, to survivors, to allies, to Colorado values, and to our sense of decency.

Brett Kavanaugh is unfit to serve on the Supreme Court. We have 56,000 members statewide. And all of them will be watching to see whether Sen Gardner sides with sexual assault survivors or with Brett Kavanaugh.”
