8:32 pm
>> president biden now says he does support ending the filibuster to protect abortion access. a striking reversal since biden has resisted calls to scrap the 60 vote threshold to pass legislation. but now he says he would support changing the rules. so a simple majority could save roe versus wade. but even though democrats control the senate there isn't enough support of this point to change the filibuster rule. the party would have to pick up a few more senate seats in the midterm elections. and of course, the bay area also feeling the ripple effects from the decision to strike down roe versus wade. a san mateo startup called favor provides contraception to women from its online platform. and that company says there's been a 5,000% increase in orders for emergency contraception. and just 72 hours since the ruling came down, product orders now coming in from all over the country. the company says it
