Congress Could Outlaw Abortion If Roe V. Wade Is Overturned

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.9

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said that Congress could outlaw abortion if Roe v. Wade gets overturned.  “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,” McConnell said.  McConnell also remarked that Republicans’ position on abortion is clear.  Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said he would force a vote next week to codify Roe v. Wade, but the vote would fall short because Democrats lack the 60 votes needed to advance it.
