Why is it that Supreme Court judges appointed by republican presidents turn out to be liberals in disguise so often? Souter was. Roberts was. Justices appointed by democrat presidents always, ALWAYS are just as hard left as advertised. They never suffer disappointments. It looks like we may have been conned again.
Justices Roberts and Kavanaugh Betray Pro-Lifers. As Expected
After all the push and fighting pro-lifers did to make sure Robert Kavanaugh took a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court, how could we not have expected to be betrayed as soon as possible?

The Supreme Court Monday rebuffed efforts by states to block funding to Planned Parenthood.
It left in place two lower court opinions that said that states violate federal law when they terminate Medicaid contracts with Planned Parenthood affiliates who offer preventive care for low income women.
It would have taken four justices to agree to hear the issue, and only three conservative justices — Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch — voted to hear the case.
Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh appeared to side with the court’s liberals in not taking up the case — showing an effort to avoid high-profile abortion-related issues for now.
