Biden says he supports Senate filibuster 'exception' for abortion rights

President Joe Biden called on Congress Thursday to pass a law codifying abortion rights for all Americans, and he argued the Senate should create an exception to the filibuster rule to do so. "I believe we have to codify Roe v. Wade in the law," Biden said at a press conference, in reference to the 1973 Supreme Court decision that first granted abortion rights to all American women, before that decision was overturned by the Supreme Court last Friday. "And if the filibuster gets in the way...we should provide an exception for this."
