Trump has made clear that his Supreme Court nominee would “automatically” overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court case that affirmed the constitutional right to access abortion in this country. Judge Kavanaugh has already ruled to limit access to safe, legal abortion — just last year.

It’s no coincidence that candidates running for office in 2018 are rushing to applaud President Trump on his nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. They all have one thing in common - hostility toward Roe v. Wade and woman’s right to make her own health care decisions.  

Martha McSally: GOP Senate Candidate in Arizona 

Rick Scott: GOP Senate Candidate in Florida

Adam Putnam: GOP Governor Candidate in Florida

Sandy Pensler: GOP Senate Candidate in Michigan

  • On Kavanaugh: “I support @POTUS nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, as our next Supreme Court Justice. I look forward to getting to Washington to support President Trump and Judge Kavanaugh, and I’m ready to vote to confirm him to our nation’s highest bench.”
  • On Roe: “I think Roe v. Wade was a terrible decision by a court, really an almost tyrannical decision by nine people on the rest of the country.”

Bill Schuette: GOP Governor Candidate in Michigan

  • On Kavanaugh: “Great decision by President Trump selecting Brett Kavanaugh.” 
  • On Roe:  When asked whether he supports abortion bans even in cases of rape or incest, Schuette replied, “I do.”

Dean Heller: GOP Senator running for reelection in Nevada

  • On Kavanaugh“Judge Kavanaugh has a record of adherence to the Constitution and has demonstrated a commitment to interpreting the law – not making it.” 
  • On Roe: Dean Heller wants to see Roe v. Wade overturned, and has voted to ban abortion and criminalize doctors who perform safe, legal abortion.

Lou Barletta: GOP Senate Candidate in Pennsylvania

Mike DeWine: GOP Governor Candidate in Ohio 

Leah Vukmir: GOP Senate Candidate in Wisconsin

Scott Walker: GOP Governor Running for Reelection in Wisconsin

Matt Rosendale:  GOP Senate Candidate in Montana:

  • On Kavanaugh: “Brett Kavanaugh is one of the most qualified nominees to the Supreme Court…”
  • On Roe: Rosendale opposes abortion, even in cases of rape or incest, and he voted for a personhood bill.
