What to Say

Here are some talking points you should go over:
  • Don’t be afraid to tell your story. If the ACA or access to safe, legal abortion has positively impacted your life, or if you’re worried about the consequences of overturning Roe v. Wade or gutting the ACA, let your senator know. Personal stories can be one of the most effective ways to influence policy.
  • Donald Trump has spent years saying that overturning Roe v. Wade would be a litmus test for any Supreme Court nominee. He’s laser-focused on allowing the criminalization of abortion, and any nominee who would overturn Roe v. Wade is unacceptable.
  • Brett Kavanaugh has expressed disturbing views of presidential power and would fail to be an independent check on Trump. He dissented from a decision that upheld the ACA’s birth control benefit and argued that a president can refuse to enforce the ACA, even after it was upheld by the Supreme Court.
  • Americans deserve a Supreme Court that upholds, not rescinds, our fundamental rights. I’m asking you to vote no on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court.

Some Tips

Introduce yourself

Introduce yourself, ask for the name of the person who handles judicial nominations, and share where you're from so your senator’s staff know that you're a constituent. (“Hi, this is Joe calling from Bangor, Maine. Can I speak to the person in your office who handles judicial nominations?”)

Say why you’re calling & what you want to happen

State the reason you are calling and the specific action you want your senator to take — to vote no on any Supreme Court nominee who would overturn Roe v. Wade or gut the progress of the ACA.

Share

After your call, share how the call went on Facebook and Twitter and encourage your friends to reach out to their senator.
