Pro-lifers push filibuster-proof plan in Senate

More than 35 pro-life organizations signed a letter to Congress calling for pro-lifers on Capitol Hill to try again to defund Planned Parenthood after a Democrat-led filibuster killed an earlier bill.

Marilyn Musgrave of Susan B. Anthony List explains the U.S. Senate can use a process known as "reconciliation," which allows a simple majority of votes, 51, to skirt around a filibuster.

Citing the filibuster and a lack of 60 pro-life senators,  Musgrave explains, "we can avoid that and just have a simple majority to pass something, and get it on the desk of the President, if you're successful."
