US Senate's symbolic vote to codify Roe v. Wade
Amanpour
May 11, 2022

The US Senate votes today on a measure that would codify Roe v. Wade. Democratic leadership strongly backs its passage but didn’t expect it to get close to the filibuster-proof 60 votes required. The purpose is more symbolic, shining a spotlight on which senators – and which parties – are for and against abortion rights. The ACLU’s Alexa Kolbi-Molinas recently argued a case on abortion rights before the Supreme Court and joins the show. 

Also in today's episode: Audrey Diwan, director of "Happening," a new French film that takes a bracing look at the realities of life before abortion was legal ... Professor and author Richard L. Hasen on how to cure the disinformation that poisons politics.
