With the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh starting next week, Planned Parenthood supporters made their voices heard at Senator Susan Collins' office today.

They delivered about 60 letters from constituents to her Augusta office.

The letters contained personal stories about why they are opposed to Kavanaugh's nomination.

They say they fear Roe v. Wade is in danger of being overturned.

"Personally I know it's about the reproductive choice and a women's right to choose dominion over their bodies," says Planned Parenthood supporter Ted Perrin.

"They were very open to us coming," says Planned Parenthood supporter Katie Labbe. "They took the time to sit down with us, let us read our letters, hear us, share some talking points with the senator, which was just really nice that they took time out of their busy day to sit with us and really hear us."

Collins' office says the Senator was told by Judge Kavanaugh in their meeting that he views Roe v. Wade as settled precedent.
