After the leaked Roe Vs Wade decision Democrats began to find a workaround for their abortion agenda. One way was once again calling for the ending of the filibuster.
This has failed.
Democrat senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema have both come out against ending the filibuster all but killing the Democrats’ hopes.
This week, Democrat Senators Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona dashed the hopes of their more radical colleagues amid renewed calls to pass a federal law that would overrule state limits or prohibitions on abortion.
Calls for slim Democrat majorities in the House and Senate to quickly advance a bill, the inaccurate and grossly named “Women’s Health Protection Act,” that would codify Roe v. Wade’s concocted right to abortion were swift. Almost a little too swift, perhaps, in the wake of an unprecedented leak from the Supreme Court that showed a draft opinion by Justice Samuel Alito overturning Roe.
The bill was already passed by Speaker Pelosi’s Democrat caucus in the House of Representatives, but in order to get the legislation past the Senate and on to President Biden’s desk for signature, the bill would need to garner 60 votes in order to move the bill to a final vote, something that’s just not going to happen with the current 50-50 split.
So, again, norm-shattering Dems called for the termination of the legislative filibuster requiring 60 votes to move bills ahead for a vote so they could force the Women’s Health Protection Act through. But again, Senators Manchin and Sinema aren’t having it.
