This weekend, the rabid pro-abortion senator from Maine, Susan Collins, said that she would not support a nominee to the Supreme Court who is “hostile” to abortion rights because…

“… that would mean to me that their judicial philosophy did not include a respect for established decisions, established law.”

-Susan Collins (State Senator For Maine)

Her argument is that abortion is not even open to discussion since it is “settled law.”

From this, we can conclude that, had she been a senator in 1860, she would have voted against any nominee to the Court who was hostile to the right to own slaves. We can also reasonably assume she would have opposed any nominee to the Court who, in the 1900s, supported women’s suffrage. After all, male-only voting had been “settled law” for over 100 years.

Here is a news flash for you Susan Collins.

The Supreme Court is not infallible and, in fact, it has a long history of discovering that some of its prior rulings were wrong. So despite all your noble-sounding gibberish about “judicial philosophy” and “respect for established decisions,” the fact is that you know legalized abortion cannot be defended, and this “settled law” nonsense is just your shabby way of deflecting the public’s attention so you don’t have to defend it.
