Time for Collins and Democrats to walk the walk and pass a national right to abortion law
I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of lawmakers trying to cover their backsides when the Supreme Court justices they voted to confirm turn out as bad as the rest of us thought. Today, senators Susan Collins and Joe Manchin say they feel betrayed by Kavanaugh and Gorsuch who, they say, promised during their confirmation hearings that they’d honor Roe v. Wade.
Other Democrats in Congress are expressing outrage at what the Supreme Court just did.
If Susan Collins and Joe Manchin feel betrayed, and others feel outraged, all have an easy fix: They can carve out a reproductive rights exemption to the filibuster, then enact national abortion rights. They could do it Monday.
Time for the defenders of reproductive rights to act when they have the power, instead of posturing.
