“Democrats have a clear choice,” said Berman Continuation. “They can get rid of the filibuster to pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Act and For the People Act to stop the repression of GOP voters, or they can allow the GOP to undermine democracy for the next decade.”
“The stakes,” Berman added, “couldn’t be higher.” That’s because after a analysis The state-level Republicans, run by the Brennan Center for Justice in late January, introduced three times as many bills to lose the right to vote compared to the same point last year.
As early as this year, 106 bills were introduced in 28 states – including 17 under full GOP control that are more likely to pass – to undermine access to the franchise. According to The Brennan Center report: “These proposals are primarily aimed at (1) restricting access to e-mail voting, (2) stricter requirements for voter identification, (3) successful guidelines for registration of voters; and (4) allow more aggressive electoral roll-overs. “
“These bills,” the report said argues, “are an unmistakable answer to the unfounded and dangerous lies about fraud following the 2020 elections.”

Dr. Tiller was tried and acquitted of all charges, but that didn’t stop Operation Rescue from continuing to claim Dr. Tiller performed illegal abortions.
When the law doesn’t hold abortion providers accountable for performing a legal Operation Rescue provides information to an extremist who appears ready to take the law into their own hands, as Scott Roeder did.
In his murder trial, Dr. Tiller’s assassin Scott Roeder, his decision to remove Dr. Assassinating Tiller was due in part to the unsuccessful pursuit of Dr. Attributed to Tiller.
