I’m Not Sure That I Agree With This

In fact, I’ve often wondered why Democrats have never tried to codify Roe v. Wade into law.

And when asked, Klobuchar left the door open to packing the court to get what the left wants – but acknowledges that it’s too late for this particular case.

Pressed on if she is more open to packing the court amid the abortion conversation, Klobuchar said she has “always been open to looking at the numbers of justices on the Court,” but contended that “most sane route to gets done right now would be to bring this up before the U.S. Senate to codify Roe v. Wade into law.”

There is no way that the Senate gets 60 votes to block a filibuster on this bill. And the Democrat “majority” in the Senate is definitely not a majority when it comes to abortion on demand. Once again, we find Joe Manchin, a Democrat who would like to keep his Senate seat in a deep red state, being the stumbling block to all of the progressive left’s hopes and dreams of killing for convenience’s sake. So while Klobuchar is busy paying lip service to the left, she knows perfectly well that the WHPA is dead on arrival in the Senate.

I think this is overly optimistic. There’s definitely not 60 votes for such a bill, but there might be 60 votes for cloture. I think there’s almost certainly 50+1 votes. And the Democrats might decide that this is the hill to die on for killing the filibuster once and for all.

Frankly, this is the route the left should pursue. I personally don’t think the Court is going to overturn Roe, but I don’t think the left is going to be happy with the decision, regardless. It seems clear that the Court will continue to allow more and more “reasonable” restrictions upon abortion, tearing up Roe bit by bit rather than overturning it explicitly.
