Collins previously said she would oppose a Supreme Court nominee who would not uphold Roe v. Wade. At the state level, abortion rights are already at risk, with increasing legal restrictions and the rapid closure of clinics in rural parts of the country like Kentucky, where only one clinic remains.

Sen. Susan Collins told liberals to stop trying to bribe her into voting against Supreme Court nominee Judge Kavanaugh. Seven of the eight characterized themselves of supporters of Collins's 2014 re-election bid, according to a release from Planned Parenthood.

"The people of ME want to be clear with you, Senator Collins", the Campaign by Barkan reads. In recent weeks, such activists have accused Kavanaugh of seeking to overturn Roe v. Wade if appointed to the Supreme Court, despite the nominee's assurance he viewed the matter as "settled" law.

Collins has also had some 3,000 coat hangers mailed to her office (a reference to the back alley abortion).

"This effort will not influence my vote at all", she added. "Bribery will not work on Senator Collins". "We need [Collins] to hear our message", the fundraiser description reads.

Even if all Democrats voted against Kavanaugh, two Republicans would have to join them to defeat the nomination, now that the Republican caucus is at full strength, with Jon Kyl filling the seat of John McCain of Arizona, who died last month. "Our future depends on it".

"I am also deeply troubled by Judge Kavanaugh's views on executive power", Warner said.

The Senator from ME has also been sent around 3,000 coat hangers over the course of a few months.

"Senators hold the keys to women's fundamental freedoms in their hands", NARAL president Ilyse Hogue said in a statement. "It is time Senators listen to their constituents and loudly and proudly declared their opposition to this nominee".

Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) is one of two pro-choice Republicans in the U.S. Senate, along with Senator Lisa Murkowski.

Alaska's indigenous residents have been putting pressure on the Senator to vote no, saying that Kavanaugh has a record of ruling against their rights.

If Collins decides to vote no on Kavanaugh's confirmation, none of the 36,313 pledges will be charged to the credit or debit cards used to donate to the cause, and all of the money will be returned to the accounts who donated.
