    A Democratic-led bill to guarantee abortion access nationwide failed to
    advance in the Senate Wednesday in a show vote designed to draw sharp
    political lines ahead of the midterm elections.

    Vice President Kamala Harris presided over the vote on the Women’s
    Health Protection Act. It needed 60 votes to advance, but died in a 51
    to 49 vote with West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin joining with
    all Republicans in voting no.

    President Biden immediately condemned Republicans for blocking the
    abortion rights legislation at a time when "women’s constitutional
    rights are under unprecedented attack." He called on voters to elect
    more Democrats in November, so the legislation can get passed next


    Biden can forget about more democrats getting elected.

    Women's rights are what the Supreme Court decides they are, so they can
    change depending of the makeup of the Supreme Court.

    Does that seem right?

    From what I have read the Supreme Court used the right to privacy to
    decide Roe vs Wade, even though The Constitution doesn't mention a right
    to privacy.

    The problem is they had use other parts of the Constitution to show
    that the right to privacy existed.

    As long as the Constitution is open to interpretation the laws will
    constantly change.

    If these abortion activists really wanted to accomplish their goal,
    they would try for a constitutional amendment, then there would be no

    I think they know that is impossible.
