Congratulations to my friend and colleague Senator Susan Collins on her 7,000th consecutive roll call vote! An incredible achievement worthy of recognition. Via Wikimedia Commons.

Sens. Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, the two lone pro-abortion Republicans in the U.S. Senate, introduced legislation Tuesday to force states to legalize abortions up to birth nationwide.

Together with two Democrat lawmakers, Collins and Murkowski said they believe Americans need a federal law to “undo the damage” of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in June that overturned Roe v. Wade.

Their bill, which is unlikely to pass, would force states to legalize abortions for basically any reason without restriction up to viability and allow abortions up to birth for any widely-defined “health” reason. It also prohibits states from restricting contraception.

The legislation is similar to the so-called Women’s Health Protection Act, a radical pro-abortion bill that passed the House twice but failed in the Senate. Collins, a Maine Republican, voted against the bill because she said it would jeopardize conscience protections for pro-life medical workers.

Collins and Murkowski. Definitely not a surprise. I imagine that at some point in time that a pregnancy might have caused a negative effect on their political aspirations. Well ain’t that special? Somewhere along the way, the thought of children being “gifts from God” has gotten lost. Oops. I suppose that thought wouldn’t occur if one was an atheist.
