AS KAVANAUGH BACKS ANTI-ABORTION LAW, DEMAND JUSTICE WILL RUN ADS IN MAINE ON COLLINS’ VOTE FOR KAVANAUGH

WASHINGTON, DCIn light of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s vote last night that would have let an anti-abortion law take effect in Louisiana, Brian Fallon, the Executive Director of Demand Justice, announced Friday that the group will run digital ads in Maine highlighting Senator Susan Collins’ vote last year to confirm Kavanaugh:

“Brett Kavanaugh has declared war on Roe, and Susan Collins is the one who made it possible. Even as it was obvious to everyone else that Kavanaugh was a partisan warrior committed to rolling back abortion rights, Collins defended her vote for him by promising that he would follow Supreme Court precedent. It only took four months for Kavanaugh to prove Collins’ promises were a sham. Collins cared more about pleasing the hardliners in her party than she did about protecting a woman’s right to choose, and she’s collected millions of dollars in campaign donations as a reward for supporting Kavanaugh. Collins now owns every decision that he makes. We will make sure the people of Maine don’t forget Collins’ vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh.”
