The next federal Republican trifecta will pass a “Heartbeat” [sic] bill


Let’s be very, very clear on what’s coming:

Leading antiabortion groups and their allies in Congress have been meeting behind the scenes to plan a national strategy that would kick in if the Supreme Court rolls back abortion rights this summer, including a push for a strict nationwide ban on the procedure if Republicans retake power in Washington.

The effort, activists say, is designed to bringa fight that has been playing out largely in the courts and state legislatures to the national political stage — rallying conservatives around the issue in the midterms and pressuring potential 2024 GOP presidential candidates to take a stand.

The discussions reflect what activists describe asan emerging consensus in some corners of the antiabortion movement to push for hard-line measures that will truly end a practice they see as murder while rejecting any proposals seen as half-measures.

When they modify or eliminate the filibuster to do this, I’m sure Joe Manchin will still very much enjoy driving his Maserati between his mansion and his yacht after a few minutes of pretending to be surprised to discover that Republicans did not reciprocate his good faith acts of comity.
