Americans declare war on Susan Collins after Kavanaugh’s anti-abortion vote in SCOTUS case


Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine) just found out that her 2020 re-election bid is going to be a whole lot more difficult after Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh made her look like a complete tool by voting to kill abortion rights in Louisiana in a recent 5-4 ruling.

At the height of the Kavanaugh hearings on Capitol Hill, Collins took to the Senate floor to declare her support of the conservative judge who had been accused of attempted rape just days earlier, and proclaimed her belief that he won’t vote to overturn abortion rights in this country.

“Finally, in his testimony, he noted repeatedly that Roe had been upheld by Planned Parenthood v. Casey, describing it as precedent on precedent,” Collins said. “When I asked him whether it would be sufficient to overturn a long-established precedent if five current Justices believed it was wrongly decided, he emphatically said no.”

She believed him even though multiple women’s groups repeatedly pleaded with her to vote against him. And now she has egg on her face.

Because on Thursday, Kavanaugh dissented in a case challenging a recent anti-abortion law in Louisiana that would impose a burden on women’s reproductive health clinics by enacting draconian rules designed to reduce the number of clinics offering the procedure to just one, which means tens of thousands of women in the area who seek an abortion would not be able to get one.

Only because Chief Justice John Roberts joined the majority in the decision did the high court rule to block the law for the time being. And Kavanaugh proved Collins to be a liar.

That’s why Twitter lit her up after the ruling and Americans declared war against her.

Perhaps the most prominent declaration of war came from horror author Stephen King, who previously vowed to see her ousted from office if she voted for Kavanaugh.

With just one vote, Kavanaugh made Collins’ 2020 Senate race a top target for Democrats. In the end, she is going to regret voting to confirm him after all the times she has claimed to be pro-choice. Clearly, she lied to the people of Maine and women across the country. And they will all remember in November 2020. Collins will forever be known as a betrayer of women at a time they needed her the most.
