In response to the headline and story written by The Associated Press ("Senate bid to save Roe v. Wade falls to GOP-led filibuster," The Daily News, May 11) is extremely biased and misleading.
The vote was 49-51 with the Democrat vote at 49. The filibuster had nothing to do with the outcome of the vote. The Senate is a 50/50 body, and evidently there's at least one Democrat willing to stand on principle.
It's extremely frustrating to know that some people only get their news from outlets like yours.
Editor's note: The vote at issue in that article was to end a filibuster and allow Women’s Health Protection Act to move forward. Under Senate rules, 60 votes are required to end a filibuster. A vote on the actual bill might have ended the same way. Many thought it would, but no debate was held and no vote taken on that bill because of a filibuster.
