    With 246 members, you are bound to get a variety of legislative priorities. Clearly some felt that this legislation would be effective, and at the very least would bring parity to the various state laws.

    It's effective in that it addresses about 1% of abortions. If Obama tried to pass an idea supposedly addressing an issue, but only dealing with 1% of it, there would be a public outcry of how ineffective government is. Are Republicans ineffective now?

    The republican party is simply a party of cowards anymore and this was nothing more then a feeble attempt to cater to conservatives. Then they could go back home and say " look what we did"

    It's going to be a long 2 years for the Republican Congress if this is their first shot at Liberal policies.

    If Roe v Wade is so bad and goes against your moral principles, then just overturn it and take what may come.

    They have the numbers. They have their mandate. I'm sure they could do it with the support of the American people. No?

    SCOTUS will never allow Roe to be overturned any more than they will allow the 2nd Amendment to be repealed.

    Then what's the point of addressing 1% of abortions? Rhetoric? How can they possibly claim any sort of victory on the issue? Or is the get work mentality of the GOP only for the papers?

    SCOTUS can't rule on anything Congress says they can't.
