Here's Why The House Is Considering A 6-Week Abortion Ban


The proposed 6-week abortion ban has virtually no chance of becoming federal law; even Republican Gov. John Kasich, who opposes abortion, vetoed a similar measure in Ohio last year. The House GOP is likely floating the more extreme bill as a strategy to make one of their legislative goals, the 20-week abortion ban, seem more palatable to moderate senators.The anti-abortion movement has acknowledged that the 20-week ban is the most likely vehicle for successfully challenging the Supreme Courtâs 1973 Roe v. Wade decision â and while the House has passed it several times, the Senate so far hasnât had the votes to do so. âThey should just state their goal, which is to ban abortion entirely, but they wonât because they know they lose when they are honest about their intentions,â said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America.
