DAILYKENN.com -- Maine's Susan Collins, a Republican US Senator, agrees with white supremacists who support Roe v Wade. White racists view abortion as an efficient and effective means of legally killing black people.
Collins says she won't back Donald Trump's nominee for the United States Supreme Court — sight unseen — if that nominee has demonstrated hostility towards abortion.

Sen. Susan Collins (R., Maine) said on Sunday that any nominee for the Supreme Court that had demonstrated hostility to Roe V. Wade would not receiver her support.
CNN host Jake Tapper asked Collins about how President Donald Trump expressed desire to nominate justices who may vote to overturn Roe V. Wade if offered the opportunity. Collins, who supports Roe V. Wade, is a key vote in the Senate, where Republicans only have a one vote majority in the chamber.
"With all due respect, the Supreme Court, as we know, it overturns its own rulings all the time," Tapper said. "It has overruled more than 200 of its own decisions, once just last week and it is a stated goal of President Trump and Vice President Pence to appoint Supreme Court justices who will vote to overturn Roe Versus Wade. whether they said it on the campaign trail or they say it now, it's almost immaterial, it's a stated goal."
Collins said there's a difference between overturning cases such as key civil rights cases and abortion. Collins based her opposition to nominees who would overturn Roe V. Wade due to it being an overturn of precedent.
