Mitch McConnell said in an interview on Saturday that it’s possible that federal lawmakers could pass a law prohibiting abortion if the Supreme Court guts Roe v. Wade.
If a federal law were passed American women would have to cross national borders to receive an abortion.
When asked whether a national ban was “worthy of debate” if the Supreme Court overturns the landmark 1973 decision, McConnell said “that was the point that it should be resolved one way or another in the legislative process. So yeah, it’s possible.”
McConnell said it was clear that Republicans oppose abortion.
“With regard to the abortion issue, I think it’s pretty clear where Senate Republicans stand.”
