Fix Our Senate on SCOTUS Abortion Ruling: Senate Democrats Can Protect Reproductive Rights, or They Can Protect the Filibuster

Fix Our Senate

Flashback: Fix Our Senate, reproductive health and justice advocates cite conservative court as clear reason to tackle filibuster

Washington, DC – Today, Fix Our Senate spokesman Eli Zupnick released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court ruling that allows Texas’ ban on abortion to be implemented.

“Last night’s egregious Supreme Court ruling allowing Texas' abortion ban to stand should be another wakeup call to President Biden and Senate Democrats on the urgent need to address the filibuster and protect the rights and freedoms of Texans and people across the country. President Biden and Senate Democrats now face a stark and undeniable choice: Protect the filibuster or protect reproductive rights, including safe and legal abortion – they can’t do both.

“We stand with the advocates and organizations fighting back against this latest attack on reproductive rights and with the health care professionals and others on the front lines working to help those whose lives and care will be impacted the most.”
