I am telling my Missouri Senators to Say NO, NO, NO to Gorsuch and the Dark Monies Trying to Push his Nomination throught!!!


Tell Senators: Oppose the Confirmation of Judge Gorsuch

AAUW watched closely as the U.S. Senate held its hearing for Judge Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trump’s nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court. After careful consideration of his record and his testimony, one thing is clear: if confirmed, Judge Gorsuch would put the rights of women and families at risk.

The Senate is expected to vote on Judge Gorsuch’s nomination next week and they’ll need 60 votes to confirm him. It’s crucial that BOTH of your senators hear your concerns – constituent comments will be the deciding factor in this confirmation process.

Call the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask to be connected to one of your two U.S. Senators. Urge them to oppose Judge Gorsuch’s confirmation to the Supreme Court. We’ve outlined our case in the following call script. When you’re finished, hang up and call your second senator.

Hello my name is NAME and I’m calling from CITY, STATE. I am calling to urge the Senator to oppose Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court and vote no. Judge Gorsuch’s record and testimony show that he’s a troubling choice for women and families.

– Judge Gorsuch consistently sides with employers, failing to ensure that workers who are wronged have access to the courts – including women who experience sex discrimination in the workplace.

– Judge Gorsuch has failed to agree to uphold Roe v. Wade and, when given the opportunity to support women worker’s access to birth control, he sided with their bosses and corporations.     

– Judge Gorsuch has advocated to dismantle key legal precedent that ensures federal agencies can protect everyone’s health and safety and enforce civil rights laws.

As a constituent, I urge the Senator to oppose his confirmation and vote no on cloture. If Judge Gorsuch cannot earn bipartisan support and meet the 60-vote threshold, then President Trump should put forward a new nominee.

The next Supreme Court justice stands to influence cases for multiple generations of Americans and could set important precedents in cases concerning women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, immigration, health care, reproductive health access, voting rights, and many more civil rights issues. We need a Supreme Court justice who is prepared to be an independent voice, not one beholden to ideology or an executive.

Call both of your U.S. Senators now at (202) 224-3121 and urge them to oppose Judge Gorsuch’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.
