House Votes To Restore Abortion Rights, Move Will Die In Senate

At a glance

  • The bill would expand on the protections Roe had previously provided by banning what supporters say are medically unnecessary restrictions that block access to safe and accessible abortions.
  • It would prevent abortion bans earlier than 24 weeks, but it allows exceptions for abortions after fetal viability when a provider determines the life or health of the mother is at risk.
  • The bill has little chance of becoming law, with the necessary support lacking in the 50-50 Senate.
