Susan Collins Surprised By Kavanaugh’s Ruling on Choice

Brett Kavanaugh, The Virgin Mayor of Keg City, got his first crack at showing to Sen. Collins her faith in his belief that Roe V Wade was settled.

Yesterday the Supreme Court granted a stay, so the law that required physicians who perform abortions must have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital,  will be put on hold while the case moves forward. They have not ruled on the law itself.

The decision represents the first major ruling related to abortion since Prznint  Stupid began packing the Supreme Court with Heritage Foundation flunkies. In an amusing show of how bad things have gotten, Chief Justice John Roberts was the crucial 5th vote.

So, how’d that confirmation vote working out for ya, Susie? 2020 looking good? Yeah.

    Ian Millhiser over at ThinkProgress has this one figured out I think.
    The decision is not about abortion as such, this is a stay on a lower court’s decision to uphold a Louisiana law that is identical to one in Texas that the SCOTUS struck down some years ago.

    Had the Supreme Court denied the stay, it would have sent a clear message to anti-abortion judges throughout the country that they can ignore high court decisions protecting abortion rights. But more than that, it would have been a signal to Republican judges throughout the country that the Supreme Court may not enforce decisions that the GOP disagrees with. Many judges would have likely taken this as a cue to start freelancing, behaving as if binding Supreme Court decisions are now optional.
    Today’s Gee order wards off that chaos. And it sends a clear message to lower court judges who think they can ignore the Supreme Court’s precedents: You don’t get to overrule our decisions, only we get to overrule those decisions.
    Yet, while the Gee order keeps abortion rights alive for a brief period, do not expect them to last. Three members of the current Supreme Court dissented in Hellerstedt. And the court’s two newest members, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, both have anti-abortion records and are almost certain to vote to overrule Roe. (Kavanaugh, for what it is worth, also authored a brief dissent arguing that the stay should have been denied in Gee because it was procedurally improper).

    If any Scissorhead could get next to the Honorable Senator Collins, she could be entertained for hours with the “Got your nose!” trick.
