Susan Collins says she had no idea Brett Kavanaugh was so anti-choice

Source: raw story




Published 6 mins ago on June 29, 2020


After being shredded online Monday, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) was trying to clean up her vote to support anti-choice justice Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court. Collins, who has long claimed to be pro-choice, said that she believed Kavanaugh when he lied to her saying that he would uphold all legal precedent for abortion cases.

............................

Kavanaugh, however, voted for the law to be upheld, flying in the face of his promise to Collins.


In a statement Monday afternoon, Collins claimed, “Kavanaugh gave no indication in his dissenting opinion that he supports overturning Roe.” It ignores the “precedent” of abortion cases other than Roe that Kavanaugh promised he would uphold.


Women’s rights group tried to tell Collins that Kavanaugh would be an anti-choice judge, but she refused to believe them. She’s now in the race for her political life for her votes being so far outside the mainstream of Maine voters.

‘Her fingerprints are all over this’: Susan Collins pummeled after Brett Kavanaugh votes to uphold Louisiana anti-abortion law
https://www.alternet.org/2020/06/her-fingerprints-are-all-over-this-susan-collins-pummeled-after-brett-kavanaugh-votes-to-uphold-louisiana-anti-abortion-law/



Written by Alex Henderson June 29, 2020


The U.S. Supreme Court, in a 5-4 decision, has struck down a Louisiana anti-abortion law, which required doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges in a local hospital. Justice Brett Kavanaugh was among the four dissenters, and Sen. Susan Collins of Maine is being slammed on social media for voting for Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the High Court in 2018.

When she came out in favor of Kavanaugh’s confirmation, Collins insisted that Trump’s nominee would be pro-choice in his rulings and recognize Roe v. Wade as “settled law.” In 2018, Collins asserted, ““Interest groups have speculated that Judge Kavanaugh was selected to do the bidding of conservative ideologues, despite his record of judicial independence. I asked the judge point-blank whether he had made any commitments or pledges to anyone at the White House, to the Federalist Society, or to any outside group on how he would decide cases. He unequivocally assured me he had not.”
ADVERTISING

But as Kavanaugh’s ruling on the Louisiana law demonstrates, he is very much a social conservative in the Clarence Thomas/Antonin Scalia vein — a fact that Twitter users have been pointing out in their anti-Collins posts.

The Lincoln Project, a Never Trump conservative group, tweeted, “Kavanaugh tried to strike down a 4 year precedent, but instead strikes down Susan Collins’ 24 year Senate career.”....................................

52. Yeah, and Kavanaugh gave Collins no indication that he attempted to rape a woman in college.

Collins is a right wing hack.

She, like all of the members of her party, hates America; until they attempted their radical reactionary program, The United States was a country where women controlled their bodies, where citizens had a right to be treated equally before the law, where the American President was not allowed to bribe foreign governments with impunity, etc, etc.

Collins made it very clear that she hates that America.

Let's just call her coat hanger Susie!

make it through SCOTUS until after the election.
That way she could have an easier time winning and when he made his first antiabortion ruling she would have time on her side for peoples memories to fade before the next election should she decide to run yet again.
