My point was not to argue for or against abortion. My point was that pushing the envelope of current abortion laws may go against public opinion and also could result in the Supreme Court revisiting Roe v Wade, which I would expect pro-choice people to want to retain as law of the land.
state laws though still dont supercede federal laws. The point of the VT bill was simply saying we won't add extra restrictions on top of existing federal laws. Partial abortion procedure (procedure during teh 2nd and 3rd trimesters) is still banned via federal law,
