Controlling both houses of Congress and the White House won't get you a bill that will criminalize abortion.
There are only two means to achieve your end:
1. Constitutional amendment -- requiring a 2/3 maority in Congress plus the assent of 38 state legislatures.
2. A clear pro-life majority on the Supreme Court.
As it was, every pro-life vacancy on the Court was replaced with a pro-life justice. But there were no pro-abortion vacancies.
The bill is “Life begins at conception Act” and is an end-run around the Supreme Court as they have left it to congress to define life. The GOP could have passed a life begins at conception Act and have Bush sign it into law but they didn’t because they don’t really care.
I don’t think so. Abortion itself is not guaranteed in the constitution. We do not need a constitutional amendment. Was it a constitutional amendment that legalized abortion? It can certainly be legislated, and the Republican party has made sure that it has missed every opportunity to seriously do so.
