Many reproductive rights advocates believe Kavanaugh would provide the deciding vote to overturn Roe or significantly weaken abortion rights on the Supreme Court - a view that advocates and Senate Democrats believe was confirmed by the 2003 email.
No Republicans have said they plan to vote against Kavanaugh. "A lot of people in ME would be disappointed if she chose to vote for Kavanaugh".
Nominated to fill the seat of retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, Kavanaugh told lawmakers he has not hesitated to make unpopular rulings in the past.
Collins, who remains undecided, is a pro-choice Republican in a Senate with a 51-49 Republican majority.
Collins, who's not up for re-election until 2020, voted last month to preserve funding for Planned Parenthood a day after the same organization rallied in Washington to encourage her to vote against Kavanaugh.
He did call Roe v. Wade an "important precedent" that has "been reaffirmed many times over the past 45 years". There have been a number of President Donald Trump's picks whom they deemed to be unqualified, but the committee gave Kavanaugh their highest classification, "well qualified". The hangers, which have been arriving at Collins' office since July, symbolize the unsafe techniques used in back-alley abortions that take place where abortions are not legal. "In my view, that critical national security need outweighs the impact on privacy occasioned by this program", Kavanaugh wrote in a concurring opinion with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit declining to rehear a case challenging the legality of the mass surveillance programs revealed by Edward Snowden in 2013.
Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Friday refused to say whether it should be legal to fire a person due to their sexual orientation.
Andrew Castle Has Last Word Over Serena Williams' US Open Outburst

Even though he knows it will be a challenge, Brady said he wants to play at least five more years. It's a valiant effort by these kids, but like he's done 76 times before in his career, J.J.
US Open -- Naomi Osaka reaches semifinals
That break seemed to give Djokovic some much-needed rest and he sat down on his sideline bench without a shirt on and cooled off. Naomi Osaka took her place in the semifinal with a win over Lesia Tsurenko in straight sets on Wednesday.
Democratic Senator Cory Booker focused on an email he said described Kavanaugh's views as a Bush White House aide on the use of "racial profiling" in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States by the al Qaeda Islamist militant group.
While the above two examples are probably worrying enough to most Black folks, Asians may also want to pay attention to Kavanaugh's apparent racism, according to one of the emails that tried to reinforce racial stereotypes.
Kavanaugh sat in silence as members of the Senate Judiciary Committee battled over the release of classified documents related to his time in the George W. Bush White House.
Abortion advocates and Senate Democrats, however, weren't convinced by Kavanaugh's testimony, in which he also falsely described birth control pills as "abortion-inducing drugs". He said he offered the comments because he's "always concerned with accuracy". The "die-in" was directed at Collins' upcoming vote on Kavanaugh. The coat hangers symbolize the danger of making abortion illegal again, serving as a reminder of the back-alley abortions that women resorted to before Roe v. Wade became settled law in 1973.
You could replay any Democrat's pseudo-interrogation of Judge Kavanaugh - whom Democrats lectured but did not question, not once - and find the same lesson.
Nevermind the fact that Zina Bash, Kavanaugh's former law clerk, was caught on camera during his Senate confirmation hearings this week flashing what appeared to be a white power hand sign.
Collins insists she's still deciding.
