Sen. Dick Durbin: Today’s Abortion Vote Puts Senators ‘on Record’

‘If you want to vote that way, be my guest’

EXCERPT:

BERMAN: "So, putting people on the record, what does that get you?"
DURBIN: "Perhaps attention of the electorate, they have the final word in this basic decision as to whether Roe v. Wade will be overturned. If it is, be prepared. We already have signals from legislatures across the United States of the extreme positions they’re going to take. In fact, Senator Mitch McConnell, the Republican Leader in the Senate, said it is possible that we will just outright ban any abortion procedures across America."
