Madison, WI – Kelda Roys has come out strongly against Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s newest nominee to the Supreme Court. Roys released the following statement:
“Donald Trump has pledged to appoint justices to the Supreme Court who will overturn Roe v. Wade, and that is unacceptable. As such, I cannot support Kavanaugh’s nomination. Brett Kavanaugh’s history indicates he will be a rubber-stamp for Donald Trump’s anti-choice and anti-worker agenda. Kavanaugh’s record is too extreme for our Supreme Court.
“This Supreme Court vacancy, and Trump’s pledge to appoint anti-choice justices, poses the clearest threat to reproductive rights in decades. This appointment underscores the importance of electing a governor with a strong track record of championing women’s health. I have that record, and I have pledged to pardon anyone charged under Wisconsin’s current abortion ban, which will go into effect immediately if Roe is overturned.”
