Senate Democrats’ bill to codify Roe goes beyond many blue states on abortion


(Worthy News) – In response to a bombshell leak from the suggesting that a reversal of Roe v. Wade may be imminent, Democrats said they will bring legislation to the floor to codify Roe in federal law. But the bill, which has little chance of passing since Senate Democrats cannot meet the 60-vote filibuster threshold to pass it, would go beyond what Roe permits by overriding nearly all state-level restrictions.

“Next week, the U.S. Senate is going to vote on legislation to codify a woman’s right to seek into federal law,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said in remarks on the Senate floor, adding the vote set for next Wednesday will be one of the “most important” votes the Senate will take.

“This is real and as urgent as it gets,” Schumer said.

Politico this week published a leaked draft of a majority opinion that would overturn Roe in a case concerning a Mississippi law banning elective abortions after 15 weeks. The document, which Chief Justice John Roberts said is authentic but does not represent the court’s final opinion, left both sides of the contentious issue bracing for a reversal, which would send the matter back to individual states to legislate. The landmark 1973 ruling in Roe legalized abortion nationwide, but the new case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, directly challenged the ruling. The court’s final decision is expected before the end of its term, likely next month. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
