No mercy for Susan Collins after she claims she was blindsided by justices’ who misled her

Senator Susan Collins reacted with disbelief after the Supreme Court’s historic overturning of Roe v. Wade on Friday, a historic ruling that left the Maine Republican badly shaken and feeling betrayed by the conservative justices who were appointed by former President Donald J. Trump.

Collins, who had little time to bask in the glory of the gun control bill that she crossed party lines to align herself with Democrats before having the rug yanked out from under her by Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. She received little sympathy from the leftist Twitter mob who used her as a punching bag.

In a statement posted to her website, Collins lashed out.

“The threshold question of whether abortion is legal needs to be consistent at a national level. States can account for regional differences with regulations like parental notification requirements, but the basic right needs to be the same for all American women,” she whined.

“The Supreme Court has abandoned a fifty-year precedent at a time that the country is desperate for stability. This ill-considered action will further divide the country at a moment when, more than ever in modern times, we need the Court to show both consistency and restraint. Throwing out a precedent overnight that the country has relied upon for half a century is not conservative. It is a sudden and radical jolt to the country that will lead to political chaos, anger, and a further loss of confidence in our government,” she added.

“This decision is inconsistent with what Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh said in their testimony and their meetings with me, where they both were insistent on the importance of supporting long-standing precedents that the country has relied upon,” the RINO lawmaker wrote, suggesting that the justices had been dishonest with her.

To Collins’ credit, she refused to buckle during the savage smear campaign undertaken against Kavanaugh in a futile attempt to derail his nomination despite frightening threats that included coat hangers being sent to her office to pressure her to crack; she didn’t and today, he rewarded her with his vote to abort Roe.

Collins was absolutely flame-broiled by livid leftists.

The knives were also out for Collins’ fellow RINO, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, another senator who threw in with Democrats to deliver a win to President Joe Biden on gun control.

There may still be a chance for Collins to make amends, as according to her statement she is eager to join Democrats to codify the right to kill the unborn in Congress.

“Earlier this year, Senator Murkowski and I introduced the Reproductive Choice Act to codify the abortion rights established by Roe v. Wade and affirmed by Planned Parenthood v. Casey. I am also working with Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) on a bipartisan bill that would codify RoeCaseyWhole Women’s Health v. Hellerstedt, and Griswold v. Connecticut. Our legislation would enshrine important abortion protections into law without undercutting statutes that have been in place for decades and without eliminating basic conscience protections that are relied upon by health care providers who have religious objections to performing abortions,” her statement reads. “Our goal with this legislation is to do what the Court should have done — provide the consistency in our abortion laws that Americans have relied upon for 50 years.”
