Saying that open-mindedness isn’t Tina Smith’s strong suit is understatement. In this article, Tina Smith sounds more like the former executive vice president of Planned Parenthood of Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota than an open-minded US senator. When she arrived in the US Senate, Planned Parenthood of Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota issued a statement congratulating her.

It started by saying “United States Senator Tina Smith will be a powerful, moving force for justice and continue her life’s work to improve people’s lives. In every position Senator Smith has held, she has brought her strategic leadership, her finely honed negotiating skills, her business acumen and her passion for women’s health and rights, and we are all better for it. Smith has been a strong voice for women’s health and rights in Minnesota. As our United States Senator, Tina Smith will be a calm, sensible leader who understands that women can’t earn a living or support their children if they don’t have access to the reproductive health care they need.”

Here’s what Sen. Tina Smith did after Judge Kavanaugh was announced:

Standing on the Supreme Court steps at a Monday night rally, Smith accused Trump of picking the D.C. federal appeals judge from a list drawn up by “far right ideologues” who believe he’ll cast the deciding vote on overturning legalized abortion under Roe v. Wade.

“It’s clear that President Trump, the Heritage Foundation, and the Federalist Society believe they can count on Judge Kavanaugh to cast that decisive fifth vote to overturn Roe, dismantle basic consumer protections in our health care laws, and gut regulations that protect workers and the environment,” Smith said at the rally, according to remarks provided by her office.

Later, she said, “I am here tonight because I’m a United States senator. But I’m also the only senator who has ever worked at Planned Parenthood. And I know that when women do not have the freedom to make their own choices about their reproductive health care, they have lost the freedom to direct their own lives.”

Spoken like a true far left ideologue. I’m betting that more people think of Planned Parenthood as ideological extremists than think that the Heritage Foundation is an extremist organization. Here’s Sen. Smith at the anti-Kavanaugh protest:

The Uterus Caucus, aka NOW, NARAL Pro-Choice America, Planned Parenthood and other abortion rights organizations were totally determined to prevent anyone on President Trump’s list that they prepared in advance:

By comparison, Karin Housley’s response sounded rational:

State Sen. Karin Housley, the Republican frontrunner to run for Smith’s Senate seat this November, called Kavanaugh an “excellent choice” on Trump’s part. “At a time when our nation’s founding principles are increasingly called into question, Judge Kavanaugh will make a tremendous addition to the high court,” Housley said in a statement, in which she said Smith “has shown she is in lockstep with the radical, left-wing brand of Chuck Schumer and Elizabeth Warren.”

Sen. Housley should’ve also included Kamala Harris in her list of “radical, left-wing” nutjobs. Here’s why:

Tina Smith is just as nutty as Harris, Schumer or Warren.

    Hint to Ms. Smith and every other woman out there saying a woman’s right to choose will be taken away with Kavanaugh on the bench – you still have the right to not have sex or you can use other forms of birth control if Roe VS. Wade is somehow overturned. Also, just because he is on the bench does not mean it will be overturned.

    Chad Q – How can you justify a Nanny State interfering in bedrooms and between a patient and her doctor? What act of disentangling a conscience of basic norms of freedom is needed to go to that bless-the-Nanny-State if it keeps the evengelicals happily at bay but voting outlook? Some might view that as cynical. And I thought you guys all were about liberty. You guys say it so much I started to believe. But no. You don’t want privacy or self determination, you want barefoot and pregnant.

    How is it Nanny State to say either don’t have sex or use birth control? I don’t want barefoot and pregnant, I want personal responsibility for the actions taken. With big power comes big responsibilities.
    Funny how you guys are all for killing an unborn child and wanting to keep it legal but when an illegal alien with a kid comes across the border, you want them kept together and the laws preventing them from coming into the country abolished.
    And since when did killing an unborn child become a basic norm of freedom or liberty?
