Protect our rights! How to resist Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee

Donald Trump just nominated conservative Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court is the last line of defense for safe and legal abortion in this country. With reproductive rights under assault like never before, we must send a message to every single senator who will vote on his confirmation.

The Supreme Court will be the last line of defense when the president acts recklessly to target immigrants, refugees, Muslims, and people of color. They will have the duty of safeguarding the civil rights, equality, and dignity for all. They will uphold Roe v. Wade, protecting the right of every woman to decide when and whether to bear children — or they will be responsible for dismantling our most fundamental rights.

Donald Trump’s nominee, Neil Gorsuch, has an alarming history of interfering with reproductive rights and health. He ruled that bosses should be able to deny women access to birth control coverage.

Before Judge Gorsuch is allowed anywhere near the Supreme Court bench, he must commit to upholding Roe v. Wade and defending access to safe and legal abortion. Do not let them turn the Supreme Court into another means of stripping away our fundamental rights.

The Supreme Court will play a crucial role in ensuring the Trump administration doesn’t trample over our human and civil rights. Whoever Trump nominates will be positioned to shape U.S. policy for decades. It’s important that we all hold the line and not allow Trump to dictate U.S. policy long after his administration has gone.

Please email or write a personalized letter to urge your senator(s) to oppose and filibuster this disastrous Supreme Court nominee.

Suggested mail text: 

Dear Senator _________

Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch is an outspoken proponent of limiting federal agencies authority to take regulatory action of any kind.

Neil Gorsuch sided with religious employers seeking to limit their employees’ rights to birth control coverage.

Before Judge Gorsuch is considered for appointment to the Supreme Court bench, he must commit to upholding Roe v. Wade and defending access to safe and legal abortion.

Please oppose appointing a right-wing extremist to the Supreme Court.

Sincerely,

[Your Name]
[Your Address]
[City, State ZIP]
