House Approves GOP Bill Banning Most Late-Term Abortions

Thursday, May 14, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- Republicans finally won House approval Wednesday for a late-term abortion ban after dropping rape provisions that provoked a rebellion by female GOP lawmakers, forcing party leaders into an embarrassing retreat, Fox News reported.

The near party-line 242-184 vote marked a victory for anti-abortion lawmakers and organizations. But the path to passage took months of negotiations among those groups, female lawmakers and party leaders, underscoring how tough it will be for the GOP to satisfy anti-abortion forces while retaining support from women voters for next year's elections.

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, called the bill "the most pro-life legislation to ever come before this body," adding, "We should all be proud to take this stand today." --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/05/13/house-approves-gop-bill-banning-most-late-term-abortions/?intcmp=latestnews" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
