McConnell refrains from endorsing national abortion ban

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell did not express support for a 15-week federal ban on abortions, stating that he believes the issue should be decided by individual states rather than through national legislation. Following the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health in 2022, states have implemented various laws either expanding or restricting abortion access. McConnell suggested that any federal legislation on abortion is unlikely to receive enough votes in the Senate and emphasized the importance of considering the diverse views on this divisive issue at the state level. McConnell also clarified a previous statement he made regarding the possibility of a national abortion ban.
