POLL Amy Klobuchar: Senate should eliminate the filibuster to protect abortion rights - Axios

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) told CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday that the Senate should abolish the filibuster in order to protect abortion rights.

Driving the news: Klobuchar's comments come after the Supreme Court last week allowed one of the most restrictive abortion bans in the U.S. to take effect in Texas. The Minnesota senator said Sunday the court had "greenlighted a law that is blatantly against Roe v. Wade."

(In the past, the filibuster was had been used to protect us from some very draconian bills, such as during the McCarthy era)

Should the filibuster be eliminated?

Now that it got this far, I say we use it to sweep elections until we can protect abortion without eliminating the filibuster. At that point, we can protect a lot more than abortion rights.
