In other news, Planned Parenthood and other abortions rights groups say there is a new standard the next Supreme Court justice must meet and senators must consider when deciding how they will vote.

Boy can we stir this crap up…. just remember, it is all about money…. little has this to do about the life of the child in the womb… sad.


Collins, Murkowski to play pivotal role in Supreme Court abortion battle

“The Senate must only confirm a justice who affirmatively declares that they believe the U.S. Constitution protects individual liberty and the right of all people to make personal decisions about their bodies and personal relationships — including the right to use contraception, the right to have an abortion, and the freedom to marry whom they choose,” Planned Parenthood said in a press release Thursday.

Trump has vowed to only appoint justices who are “pro-life” and will overturn Roe v. Wade.

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), a key vote in the confirmation process, has said she will only support a nominee who respects precedent and considers Roe v. Wade settled law.

That’s not enough, the groups said.

“Just vaguely referencing ‘precedent’ can no longer be an acceptable answer or standard by which senators can accurately judge,” said Dawn Laguens, executive vice president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund.

“Tell Susan Collins calling Roe precedent or ‘settled law’ is not enough. Not even close,” said Brian Fallon, executive director of Demand Justice.

“Past Republican nominees have proved those words are nothing when they get on the bench.”

Meanwhile, the majority of voters surveyed in a poll commissioned by NARAL Pro Choice America say they do not want to see Roe v. Wade overturned. More from the poll: 

  • 56 percent of Alaska voters said they do not want to see the Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade, and 53 percent said they would be less likely to support their senator if they voted to confirm a candidate who would do so.
  • 55 percent of voters in Florida, 63 percent of voters in Maine, 49 percent of voters in Missouri, half of voters in Montana, 55 percent of voters in Nevada and 47 percent of voters in Texas said they would not like to see the Supreme Court overturn the decision.

Don’t forget: Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R- Alaska) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) are two key votes to watch
