WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Purdue students took part in a state-wide plea to U.S. senators to vote no to Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court.

Members of the Greater Lafayette's Younger Women's Task Force, as well as other activists, held a banner and passed out flyers on Purdue's campus Thursday afternoon.

They were urging people to call senator Joe Donnelly and tell him to not vote for Kavanaugh.

The coalition of activists said their main concern is that Kavanaugh will vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

"Health-care is a really important issue to us, we think that every American should have access to it and the fact that a Supreme Court Justice wants to eradicate it is a little concerning to us," said Purdue student and activist, Viviana Tsangaropoulos.

The group has other concerns as well.

"The sexual abuse allegations against Kavanaugh is deeply disturbing for a lot of us as well as the endorsement that he just got from Roy Moore today is also a little disturbing," said Tsangaropoulos.

Similar rallies were held in Indianapolis, Bloomington and Fort Wayne on Thursday. A rally is planned for South Bend on Sept. 22.
