  •  No. You misunderstand. The Article V (2+ / 0-)

    process referred to is the calling of a Convention to write amendments.  It is not the normal amending process whereby 2/3 of each house of Congress approves an amendment and it then must be ratified by 3/4 of the states.  Instead, a convention is called to write amendments, effectively taking Congress out of the equation.  It has never been used.

    Ultimately, the only thing that matters with respect to preserving choice is who will be nominating the next Supreme Court Justices.
