Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has not even been dead for 24 hours and Republicans like Doug Collins are already smearing her and celebrating her death as they rush to jam through a nominee to replace her.

Only hours after Ginsburg’s death, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) released a statement declaring his intention to confirm a new Justice immediately even though it’s an election year.

This is hypocrisy because McConnell refused to confirm former President Barack Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland to the bench citing the 2016 Election as the reason why.

His statement even disrespected Ginsburg’s final wish to be replaced by a new president. But he’s far from the only Republican to spit on Ginsburg’s corpse.

Senate hopeful and current congressman Doug Collins (R-Ga.) accused Ginsburg of murdering 30 million babies because she supported Roe v. Wade.

Let’s just be clear. Ginsburg did not kill any babies. A fetus is not a baby and most abortions occur long before the fetus is viable outside the womb. That is basic science. Women have the right to choose in this country and denying them that right is the equivalent of enslavement by men. There’s no other way to put it. Collins literally thinks women should be forced to carry unwanted pregnancies to term, even pregnancies that are the result of rape.

In response, Twitter users trashed Collins.

Not long after Collins’ monstrous tweet, Trump demanded the right the replace Ginsburg immediately.

You know, Americans elected Obama in 2008 and again in 2012 to fulfill the duty to nominate new Supreme Court Justices. But Republicans refused to carry out their own obligation and did not even grant Garland the courtesy of a confirmation hearing even though he was nominated several months prior to the 2016 Election. We are only a few weeks away from this election and Biden currently leads in the polls. Clearly, if there’s a time when the American people should get a say in who picks Ginsburg’s replacement, it’s this year.
