Because 75% of the country doesn't mind or is pro abortion. That includes a lot of republicans.

How do you know the US won't ban abortions?

Because First Amendment arguments could also be made against banning abortion. For example, it is permitted in Jewish law.

The Constitution can be brought in, but since when has that stopped people? Public opinion might go against it but has that ever stopped politicians?

And First Amendment arguments could be made for banning abortion. For example, it is not permitted in Catholic Canon. But that is with religion, and religion is supposed to be separate from state.

That is why we as a people need to vote in people who support the constitution....

I disagree. Sticking solely unto a piece of legislation, no matter how excellent, without stoping to consider whether it is ill-fitting in contemporary times smacks of narrow mindedness.

Two thirds of both houses, three fourths of all states.

Familiar with that?

No just 2/3 of the House. Where have you plucked the 3/4 magic figure from eh?

Also, remember that not all democrats are pro abortion; we have seen bills getting passed due to cross Bench support. Also, with the evangelical vote rising since the early 2000s it is an issue.

Familiar with that?

And in any case, the 3/4 is to amend the Constitution, you might not even need to change it to pass pro life bills.

Umm, yes. You DO need to amend the constitution to pass pro life bills, since Roe vs Wade is a constitutional argument.

And the evangelical vote has not been rising as fast as you think.
