(1) Since when did SCOTUS say they would ban it?

Read the summary of Roe v. Wade. SCOTUS said it has an "interest" in the fetus/baby at the point of viability. Thus, ban the procedure.

(2) There are situations for which the fetus will not survive but for which such a procedure is necessary. Banning the procedure endangers the mother.

Very rare instances. Over the 20 years of medical experience at high risk institutions, dealing with thousands of patients, I've run across 1 case where the life of the mother was in danger. I'm not arguing banning the procedure in that instance. Nor do I think most people would either.
