Ever since the historic Supreme Court ruling that overturned Roe v. Wade, furious Democrats have been trying to protect and promote abortions through a variety of moves.
This includes wanting to use Medicaid funds for abortions, as well as spending federal dollars to help pregnant women get abortions in other states. And if they remain in power, they’ll push for even more.
Vice President Kamala Harris Revealed What They Plan To Do If Democrats Win The Senate In The Midterm Elections.
Currently, there’s a 50-50 split in the Senate, though Democrats hold the edge because VP Harris casts the tiebreaking vote and she invariably sides with the left.
If Republicans can gain just one seat, they’ll be able to stymie a lot of bills that try to go through. However, if Democrats win a couple seats and obtain the clear majority, that spells trouble for the GOP.
During an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Harris said they’ll “remove the filibuster rule to pass abortion and voting legislation.” This is precisely what Conservatives have been concerned about.
Here’s part of what she said (from Breitbart):
Our president has said he will not let the filibuster get in the way. If the Senate through a majority voter, votes to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act, he will sign it into law.
You know what that means in the midterms? We need to hold on to the Senate and get two more then we can put into the law the protections of Roe v. Wade.
Host Chuck Todd asked if Democrats plan to remove the filibuster entirely, or for just this particular issue.
The Vice President didn’t clarify 100%; she responded: “The president has been clear on this issue and on another very important issue which is voting rights.”
Leftists continue to claim that the Supreme Court removed a “constitutional right” when they handed the abortion issue back to the states. Republicans, on the other hand, say this should’ve always been the case.
Now, blue states are becoming even more lenient when it comes to abortions, and “trigger laws” basically banning abortions have gone into effect in several red states.
And yet, that’s hardly the end of the story. Those trigger laws are now facing legal hurdles due to Democrat pushback, and the federal government continues to push a hard pro-choice agenda.
If they maintain their holds on the House and Senate, expect bills like the Women’s Health Protection Act to fly through easily, which will essentially bring back Roe v. Wade in a different form.
For Conservatives and Republicans, this should be even more motivation to vote in the midterm elections — there’s clearly a great deal at stake.
