RNC supports six week abortion ban as it encourages members to pass 'strongest anti-choice legislation'
The Republican National Committee wasted no time pushing “pro-life” legislation after re-electing RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel last week, New Republic reports.
The GOP members moved to enact a new resolution that specifically urges Republican colleagues to “go on offense in the 2024 election cycle” by enforcing strict laws like six-week abortion bans.
According to New Republic, the extreme resolution calls on GOP state lawmakers to pass the “strongest anti-choice” bills they can possibly conceive.

The resolution comes as South Carolina GOP Rep. Nancy Mace asked her colleagues to consider a more “centrist” approach to the issue of abortion. Still, the RNC is not letting up on its attack on women’s reproductive rights.
Many women are not even aware of their pregnancy at the six week mark, and an abortion ban that early is part of the GOP’s “radical strategy,” as New Republic calls it, that could only further impede on the party’s electoral success.
