You can see the print ad here. The online ads will have the same design.
Statement by NARAL President Ilyse Hogue:
“Donald Trump has been crystal clear. He has a litmus test for his Supreme Court nominee: end Roe v Wade. He said it repeatedly during his campaign. We believe him. For the sake of women in Maine, and across the country, we hope Senator Collins does too. We know that Senators Collins has always said she would protect the fundamental right to privacy for women and families enshrined in Roe, and we know that now more than ever Mainers want her to stand strong. Donald Trump has been clear that his agenda is to gut Roe v. Wade, criminalizing abortion and punishing women. Because of this, and Trump’s admitted litmus test, the burden of proof is on the nominee to prove that they will proactively protect Roe v. Wade and until they do no senator, and particularly no senators who consider themselves pro-choice, should vote for the nominee. Too much is on the line to not believe Donald Trump will do exactly what he said he’d do.”
