Republican Senators Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins have joined Democratic Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Tim Kaine to introduce a bill in the US Senate that they claim will protect abortion rights and contraception access by making the "essential holdings of Roe v. Wade" federal law if passed.

The compromise bill which protects abortion access up to "viability", a term not defined within the bill, and in cases where the pregnancy places the mother's health at risk will be brought to a vote but it is unlikely to have enough GOP votes to overcome an expected filibuster should it be brought to a vote.

"unlikely to have enough GOP votes to overcome an expected filibuster"

We have to stop calling what is currently used to kill a bill as a filibuster. A filibuster is supposed to require effort.

Even this trash bill won't pass the malapportioned legislative body ruled by an extremist minority.

Biden should be hammering Dems every single day to kill the filibuster for a full codification of Roe or expansion of the Supreme Court to overrule Dobbs. Kansas makes clear this is a winning issue and Dems are wrong to hide from it.

For the evil lady from Arizona to vote this way she must have a personal stake in the matter.

Just how often does she get threatened with rape and does she know that if it's in the butt you can't get pregnant
You can just bleed to death?

When I saw the headline I thought it was Manchin and Sinema.

funny how 3 of the most loathed females from the political right put this
thing together...


almost as if, they are 'worried about being reelected and what to up their
cred as genuine women concerned with female issues or something'...

the timing couldn't be any more suspect...

Make repubs stand and talk and do a REAL fillibuster until the 2022 elections to show how much they want to take away womens' freedom.
