‘Planned Parenthood opposed three pro-choice justices just because they were nominated by Republican presidents…’
(LifeNews.com) U.S. Sen. Susan Collins defended herself against Planned Parenthood’s “outrageous” claims Sunday after she voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.
A target of Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion groups, the pro-abortion Maine Republican ignored the abortion lobby’s pressure and voted to confirm Kavanaugh on Saturday.
Afterward, Planned Parenthood accused Collins of siding “with those who disbelieved, disrespected, and even mocked survivors” of sexual assault.
The Washington Times reports Collins responded by slamming the abortion chain for making false and “outrageous” claims against her.
Though a Republican, Collins is pro-abortion and often votes against key pro-life legislation.
“First of all, I have never disregarded, disrespected or mocked survivors. That is just plain untrue,” Collins told CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday.
Hinting at a partisan agenda, Collins said Planned Parenthood did not support “pro-choice” justices nominated by Republicans either.
“I would note that Planned Parenthood opposed three pro-choice justices just because they were nominated by Republican presidents: David Souter, Sandra Day O’Connor and Justice [Anthony] Kennedy,” Collins said. “They said the same thing, women will die. This is just outrageous.”
“Women will die” if Roe v. Wade is overturned is a favorite talking point of the abortion lobby, but there is little evidence of its truth. Even if the U.S. Supreme Court overturns Roe, abortions would still be legal in most states…Original Source…
