Bernie Sanders Calls To End Filibuster To Pass Legislation That Codifies Roe V. Wade As ‘Law Of The Land’

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is urging Congress to pass legislation that codifies Roe v. Wade “as the law of the land.”

The independent senator tweeted that if there are not 60 votes in the Senate to successfully do so, then the upper chamber “must end the filibuster to pass it with 50 votes.”

“Congress must pass legislation that codifies Roe v. Wade as the law of the land in this country NOW,” Sanders wrote. “And if there aren’t 60 votes in the Senate to do it, and there are not, we must end the filibuster to pass it with 50 votes.”

Sanders’ tweet comes after Politico published a draft majority opinion showing that the Supreme Court appears set to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that made abortion a constitutional right.
