Biden Endorses Ending Senate Filibuster to Codify Reproductive Rights

Biden Endorses Ending Senate Filibuster, to Codify Reproductive Rights.

President Joe Biden made the comment during a press conference in Madrid on June 30.

He referred to the recent Supreme Court ruling that overturned Roe v.

Wade as "outrageous behavior.".

We have to codify Roe v.

Wade in the law, and the way to do that is to make sure the Congress votes to do that, President Joe Biden, via 'The New York Times'.

And if the filibuster gets in the way, it’s like voting rights, we provide an exception for this, or an exception to the filibuster for this action, President Joe Biden, via 'The New York Times'.

The comment marks just the second time the president has endorsed doing away with the necessary 60 Senate votes to pass a particular piece of legislation.

The first time was in reference to voting rights.

Democrats have so far failed to end the filibuster, with two dissenting votes from Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ).

Biden also referred to the Dobbs v.

Jackson Women's Health decision as "destabilizing.".

It is a mistake, in my view for the Supreme Court to do what it did, President Joe Biden, via 'The New York Times'.

I feel extremely strongly that I’m going to do everything in my power, which I legally can do in terms of executive orders, as well as push the Congress and the public, President Joe Biden, via 'The New York Times'.

He referred to recent polls that show the majority of Americans oppose the Supreme Court ruling that overturned Roe v.

Wade.

Biden also urged Americans to "vote, vote, vote.".

If the polling data is correct and you think this decision by the court was an outrage or a significant mistake, vote, show up and vote, President Joe Biden, via 'The New York Times'.

Vote in the off-year and vote, vote, vote.

That’s how we’ll change it, President Joe Biden, via 'The New York Times'
