Mitch McConnell Says Federal Abortion Ban ‘Possible’ If Roe Vs. Wade Is overturned

Published on

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says a federal abortion ban is ‘possible’ if the Supreme Court rules to overturn Roe v. Wade.

‘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, of Kentucky, told USA Today on Thursday.

However, McConnell remained cautious when addressing whether Republicans would pass abortion banning legislation if they were to win back the Senate in the upcoming midterm election.

‘With regard to the abortion issue, I think it’s pretty clear where Senate Republicans stand,’ he added. ‘And if and when the court makes a final decision, I expect everybody will be more definitive. But I don’t think it’s much secret where Senate Republicans stand on that issue.’
