Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said a nationwide abortion ban is “possible” if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade following the leaked draft indicating the justices are likely to do so.
McConnell discussed the possibility of state and federal abortion bans during an interview with USA Today on Friday, but he noted that such legislation is premature.
“All of this puts the cart before the horse,” he said.
When asked about a national abortion ban, McConnell said, “If the leaked opinion became the final opinion, legislative bodies – not only at the state level but at the federal level – certainly could legislate in that area.”
His comments come after Politico published Justice Samuel Alito’s leaked draft opinion last week suggeting that the Supreme Court will overturn Roe v. Wade.
“The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each state from regulating or prohibiting abortion. Roe and Casey regulated that authority. We now overrule those decisions and return that authority to the people and their elected representatives,” the apparent majority of justices wrote in the opinion.McConnell told USA Today that “if this were the final decision, that was the point that it should be resolved one way or another in the legislative […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
