  10. Senator Susan Collins built a career calling herself a “pro-choice Republican” who stands up for women’s rights.1

    But then she voted to confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh–the fifth vote to end Roe v. Wade.

    Last week, Sen. Collins voted against abortion rights AGAIN, supporting a bill that smears women and abortion providers as murderers.2

    UltraViolet Action is holding Sen. Collins accountable by making sure Mainers know the truth about her anti-choice votes. Will you chip in $5?

    Yes, I’ll donate $5 to help hold Susan Collins accountable to her anti-choice votes.

    Sen. Collins talks a big game about reproductive rights. She once said she wanted Republicans to be “synonymous with a woman’s right to choose.”3 She calls herself pro-choice and has vowed to protect women’s health care.4

    But when Sen. Collins had the chance to stop Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and truly protect Roe v. Wade, she sold out every woman in America.

    Now that she’s shown her true colors, it seems that Sen. Collins is going to keep trampling reproductive rights. Last week, she voted for an extreme bill that would threaten prison time for doctors who treat women facing the most heartbreaking complications later in pregnancy.5

    The goal of this bill is to demonize women and doctors and make it more politically feasible for the Supreme Court to end Roe v. Wade. But Sen. Collins voted for it anyway. It’s time that Sen. Susan Collins was held accountable to her anti-choice record, and we’re going to make sure Maine people know how she is voting to take away reproductive rights.

    Will you chip in $5 to help hold Susan Collins accountable to her anti-choice record?

    Thank you for joining in.
