If the Senate needs 60 votes on this bill?
But it is a walk around the Supreme’s dropping Roe v Wade…..
Kavanaugh has indicated that he would support such policy on the basis of free interstate travel which is actually NOT in the Constitution….
A group of Senate Democrats on Tuesday unveiled legislation to protect a person’s ability to travel across states to acquire reproductive care like abortions and contraception.
The bill titled “Freedom to Travel for Health Care Act of 2022” was introduced by Democratic Sens. Patty Murray (Wash.) and Catherine Cortez Masto (Nev.).
Citing the 14th Amendment as well as prior Supreme Court rulings on interstate travel, the bill seeks to explicitly outlaw any attempts to “restrict or in way sanction, hold liable, discriminate against, or otherwise disadvantage any individual from traveling to another State to receive or provide reproductive health care that is legal in that State.”
The bill would also invalidate state laws that went against the protections included within it and would give the U.S. attorney general the ability to take civil actions against states that try to enact or enforce such laws. Individuals and entities also impacted by potential laws restricting or penalizing travel for abortion would also be able to take civil action against states.
The White House has similarly moved to protect the ability to travel across state lines in order to receive reproductive services like abortions…
