Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell Has a Plan to Overturn Roe v. Wade

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell outlined his efforts to stack the courts against Roe v. Wade in an interview with an anti-abortion rights video channel this week. The Kentucky Republican also indicated that the Senate would likely hold more voters this session on the fate of abortion in the U.S. including on "some kind of legislation related to Planned Parenthood."

The comments, made to EWTN Pro-Life Weekly, came after a number of state legislatures including Missouri, Alabama, Louisiana and Kentucky instituted near-abortion bans in an attempt to challenge the precedent set by Roe v. Wade in the Supreme Court.

In his interview Thursday, McConnell said that there had been "some encouraging decisions already in recent months related to state prohibitions against funding of Planned Parenthood."
He continued that a number of judges who were confirmed to the bench under his watch will aid in bringing the case to the Supreme Court. "I've noticed how a lot of the judges that we have already confirmed just in the last two and a half years have voted in these cases," he said.

McConnell spoke with EWTN Pro-Life Weekly shortly after receiving Susan B. Anthony List's 2019 Distinguished Leader Award, which celebrates anti-abortion rights advocates................................



McConnell said that the Senate would likely have the opportunity to vote on something related to the funding of Planned Parenthood, and also possibly another vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act which would require any clinics to care for and try to revive any aborted fetuses "born alive" and prosecute anyone who did not do so. The Born-Alive bill failed to pass the Senate in February, with a final vote of 53-44.
