Supreme Court Justices or LIARS?


With the recent news of the overturning of Roe v. Wade, many in opposition to this action have taken to the streets to protest the news. Others are looking at the five that led this effort and are calling the Supreme Court Liars instead of Justices, saying they lied their way onto the supreme court. Protestors are saying that they lied because they knew that if they were honest, they wouldn’t get the job. In addition to calling them liars and pointing out their testimony from their hearings,  many say they feel betrayed by the actions of these justices and their faith in the legal system has been destroyed.

Among those feeling betrayed is Congresswoman Susan Collins, who says Gorsuch and Kavanaugh each swore to her in private meetings prior to their confirmation and during their confirmation hearings that they would respect supreme court precedent and not do anything to disrupt Roe vs Wade. 

These two were not the only ones playing coy during confirmation hearings. Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett each acknowledged that Roe v. Wade had been reaffirmed. None took the positions they have aggressively displayed now that Roe v. Wade was egregiously decided. Some say this is perjury in its purest form while others are trying to defend what happened, saying that the justices promised nothing. 

Collins isn’t buying it. She issued a statement shortly after the court struck down Roe v. Wade by a 5-4 vote saying, “This decision is inconsistent with what Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh said in their testimony and their meetings with me, where they both were insistent on the importance of supporting long-standing precedents that the country has relied upon.” Collins also took a swing at the justices for creating unrest in the country, saying that the court “abandoned a fifty-year precedent” at a time the country is “desperate for stability.”

A news reporter took exception to Collins’ comments and dismissed the idea that the justices were dishonest during the confirmation process saying, “The justices never pledged to vote to preserve Roe as opposed to generally respecting such precedent.” Others came to the defense of Collins including former Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill who said that Kavanaugh was in fact, a liar. Many are pointing to the fact that this decision on Roe v. Wade was by 6 people, 5 of whom are physically incapable of carrying a pregnancy, and 2 of those 5 have been accused of sexual assault.
