In a video conversation with NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue, Gideon said Kavanaugh “did the exact opposite of what Susan Collins professed over and over again that she was sure she would do, and that is respecting the precedent. de Roe v. Wade. “
“We are still in danger in terms of reproductive health care and access to that for all people in this country,” he added.
He was back in the spotlight after the court’s decision. Collins campaign spokesman Kevin Kelley said the senator agreed.
“To suggest that Judge Kavanaugh’s dissent in this particular case is a vote to ban abortion is absurd and not based on fact,” Kelley said. “As Judge Gorsuch wrote, ‘Truly, Roe v. Wade is not even in question here.'”
“The bottom line is that she has always believed in a woman’s right to choose and nothing about today’s decision changes the law,” he added.
