Sens. Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan should reject any Supreme Court nominee who would vote to overturn the Roe v. Wade decision.
Sadly, a radical, partisan faction of court justices is overturning decades of precedent (not to mention common sense) by rolling back voting rights, and campaign finance and labor rights laws. We cannot allow these activist judges to take away women's fundamental right to make their own health care decisions.

For women in Alaska and the rest of the United States, this issue can be one of life or death. Our senators should side with Alaskans and reject any court nominees who would overturn Roe v. Wade.
