Susan Collins Upset That Justices She Supported Overturned Roe v. Wade

June 28, 2022

U.S. Senator Susan Collins voted to confirm Samuel Alito, John Roberts, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh to the federal Supreme Court.

They sit on the court alongside two other Republican-nominated justices:  Clarence Thomas and Amy Coney Barrett. Collins wasn’t in the U.S. Senate when Thomas was confirmed, and she opposed Barrett’s confirmation to the court.

All told, Collins voted to confirm four of the six justices that voted to overturn Roe v. Wade.

As a supporter of legal abortion, though, Collins says she isn’t happy with the court’s decision.

“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,” Collins said in a written statement.
