Biden Endorses Removing the Filibuster to Codify Roe v. Wade

White House / Public Domain

On Thursday, Joe Biden said he wants the U.S. Senate to carve out an exception to the 60-vote filibuster to codify pro-abortion policies into law following the U.S. Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson decision overturning Roe v. Wade.

The Hill reports:

“The most important thing to be clear about is I believe 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,” Biden said at a press conference at the NATO summit in Spain.

“And if the filibuster gets in the way, it’s like voting rights, it should be we provide an exception for this, requiring an exception to the filibuster for this action to deal with the Supreme Court decision,” Biden added.

A change to the filibuster, which requires 60 votes in the Senate for most legislation to pass, would make it so that abortion rights or privacy rights more broadly could be codified into law with a simple majority.

Democrats hold the Senate majority with 50 senators, plus Vice President Harris acting as a tie-breaking vote.

Far-left U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) endorsed Biden’s move, writing, “Now we’re talking! Time for people to see a real, forceful push for it. Use the bully pulpit. We need more.”

This would simply be a lawless action. To pick and choose to what specific bills what Senate rules would apply can only be fairly characterized as lawless.
