#DearSenators: "I am writing to share my story about my abortion. I had been married for many years with a beautiful daughter. After many years of fertility treatments I was finally pregnant and had a wonderful baby boy. My husband and I felt satisfied with our little family and he had a vasectomy. Apparently my husband’s vasectomy failed and I was pregnant. Fortunately at the time a local doctor performed abortions. It was in his office, I felt very safe and well taken care of. There was excellent follow-up care. At no time have I ever regretted this decision.
As a side note: In the 1930s my grandmother, who had three children and a heart condition, had an abortion on her kitchen table. Fortunately she survived to live a long productive life. Please reject Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination. We should not have to go back to the abortions of the 1930s.”
#DearSenators: "Abortion will not stop. Only safe, legal abortion will. I know this because I was raised by a mother who had an illegal abortion in the 1960s. ...We cannot go back. We cannot allow women to die. Abortion will never stop. The only question is: will we fight to protect our right to safe, legal abortion? Or will we turn our backs on women? Please oppose Kavanaugh and any nominee that would put women in danger again. We're depending on you."
#DearSenators: "...I'm asking you to stand with young women around Maine and the United States. We need you to stand with us and oppose Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination. I need you to support my right to choose. I am only 17 and have a long way to go. I'd like to choose what happens to my body. Please support American women. It's simple. Stand with us."
