Sign the petition: reject Trump's Supreme Court pick

Donald Trump's first choice to the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch, has shown himself to be a right-wing activist, backing recent decisions to uphold Trump's Muslim Ban, gut workers' rights, attack women's health care, and undermine voting rights.

Now, Trump has nominated another extremist, Brett Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh is someone who argued that sitting presidents should be immune from prosecution, and that the president has the sole power to appoint and fire special prosecutors at will.

And he was on the hand-picked list put together by right-wing activists who want to overturn Roe v. Wade, marriage equality, coverage for preexisting conditions, and more.

If you are a powerful special interest or an ideological warrior who wants to undo decades of progress, this is a great nomination for you. Or if you're a President being investigated for conspiring with a foreign power to influence American elections who is looking for a get-out-jail-free card.

But If you believe in a We the People country, with reproductive choice, the freedom to marry whomever you love, the rights of minorities and the vulnerable, or the ability to get health coverage even with a pre-existing condition, you should be very, very concerned.

Sign the petition to the U.S. Senate: Protect a woman's right to make her own health care decisions, marriage equality, health care coverage for all Americans, and the integrity of an independent investigation into Donald Trump by rejecting Brett Kavanaugh.
