The following is a statement from Sarah Stoesz, President of the Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota Action Fund:

“We oppose the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Courand call on the Senate to do the same. The balance of the Supreme Court is at stake. With this nomination, women’s constitutional right to access safe, legal abortion in this country is in danger. We know how Brett Kavanaugh would rule on Roe v. Wade, because the president told us: Brett Kavanaugh would overturn Roe v. Wade.  He would also get rid of the Affordable Care Act, leaving thousands of Minnesotans without health care.”

“History clearly demonstrates that when abortion is illegal and unsafe, women’s health and lives are put at serious risk. Generations of women will be affected if we lose the right to decide what is best for our health and for our families. We cannot allow our children and grandchildren to have fewer rights than we do today.”

Fight Back Against the Title X Gag Rule

The Trump-Pence administration's Title X gag rule would block access to birth control, cancer screenings, and other basic care that Planned Parenthood patients rely on. Take action by a sending message to the elected officials that represent you to encourage them to vote in favor of HF 1011 / SF 1293, a bill that will increase funding for the state-based Family Planning Special Projects (FPSP) grant and help offset the impact of this dangerous rule.

Tell Your Senators: REJECT Kavanaugh's Supreme Court Nomination

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is unfit to serve on the Supreme Court. His track record of anti-reproductive rights extremism seriously puts our constitutional right to abortion at risk — and we won't stand by. Send a message to your senators and demand they reject Kavanaugh's nomination and any nominee who will threaten our reproductive rights.
