Skip to comments.Collins: I Will Not Support a Nominee Who Demonstrated Hostility to Roe V. Wade

Sen. Susan Collins (R., Maine) said on Sunday that any nominee for the Supreme Court that had demonstrated hostility to Roe V. Wade would not receiver her support.
CNN host Jake Tapper asked Collins about how President Donald Trump expressed desire to nominate justices who may vote to overturn Roe V. Wade if offered the opportunity. Collins, who supports Roe V. Wade, is a key vote in the Senate, where Republicans only have a one vote majority in the chamber.
"With all due respect, the Supreme Court, as we know, it overturns its own rulings all the time," Tapper said. "It has overruled more than 200 of its own decisions, once just last week and it is a stated goal of President Trump and Vice President Pence to appoint Supreme Court justices who will vote to overturn Roe Versus Wade. whether they said it on the campaign trail or they say it now, it's almost immaterial, it's a stated goal."

She is an evil ‘Rat.
The sure love to kill babies, don’t they?
So killing babies is okay with Collins.
Gotta kill them unborn babies, right Suzie?
“Demonstrated hostility”? WTF does that mean? Disagrees with? Is that now the litmus test?
It’s not a baby, it’s a choice. Don’t you get that????? /s
So we’re crying about children in cages and defending the right to murder them?
We know Suzie, we know. You and your ilk love children only if they can survive a trip to Planned Parenthood.
She is so worthless.
If the left really believes in democracy, and really believes that their policy on abortion is the majority view, why are they so terrified of Roe v Wade being overturned or modified?
Why don’t we ever hear that Roe v Wade used Viability as a limit on which Abortions could be legally performed?
The Rats and RINOS are all in on Abortion availability up to the moment of Birth, if not after (wink, wink Obama).
It’s interesting that even European Socialist Countries have more restrictive Abortion Laws that the United States.
Agreed, I was young, and naïve back in the early 60’s when I was stationed in Maine, but, I got the impression that the folks I met from there were good, down-to-earth, country folk, as Conservative as it gets.
I must have been dead wrong, if they are voting the radical libs, like this Collins chick, into office.
For those Maniacs who ARE conservative, I apologize, but you need to vote out these whackos.
Over the years I’ve had more than one liberal whisper to me that we need abortion to keep down the number of black babies.
I thought she was retiring! I’m already waiting for Paul Ryan, Jeff Flake and Bob Corker. You remember Senator Bobby Corker, who once described the Trump White House as an “Adult Day Care Center”.
Yep they sure do..I wonder how Susan Collins would have felt if her own mother had aborted her
So, a litmus test.
She shouldn’t worry then about a strict constitutionalist being confirmed then.
There aren't enough of them. They were pushed aside by out-of-state libs seeking to escape the shitholes they had made of their own states.
Why is she so scared of unborn children? What threat are they to her?
