  7. House votes to ban most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancyRead the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday May 13 | Washington Times

    The House voted Wednesday to ban most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy as Republicans delivered a key piece of the pro-life agenda and overcame an embarrassing false start earlier this year. Dubbed the "Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act," the legislation cleared on a 242-184 vote that largely broke along party lines, with just four pro-life Democrats joining in support and four Republicans voting against it.

    Tuesday May 12 | National Journal

    Republican women got the bill pulled from the House floor the first time around, and they were instrumental in bringing it back.

  9. House GOP Revives Bill To Block Late-term Abortions, Armed with New Preemie Viability DataRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday May 11 | Scientific American

    On the heels of new research that revealed more infants born at 22 weeks are able to survive than was previously thought, Republican leaders in the U.S House of Representatives have dusted off a late-term abortion bill for a vote, although chances of it becoming law seem distant. The bill, which bans abortions after 20 weeks, was put on legislative purgatory in January over provisions that some lawmakers feared would force rape victims to report crimes.

  10. House Republicans Set To Sacrifice Limited Government On The Altar Of Abortion PoliticsRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday May 11 | Outside the Beltway

    Earlier this year, Republicans in the House dropped at the last minute what would have been a vote on a bill that would ban virtually all abortions nationwide after the 20th week of pregnancy, something which Republicans had promised to do since before the 2014 elections. Ostensibly, the bill was dropped because of disputes inside the House GOP Caucus raised mostly by Republican women who were concerned that the restrictive language of the bill went too far and would harm the party's image with young and female voters.

    Friday May 1 | Family Research Council

    House leaders are giving Americans an early Mother's Day present -- a mid-week vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act! After a five-month tug-of-war, the rape and incest issues that snagged the bill are finally ironed out, and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy says conservatives are ready to deliver on the promise they made in January: getting the measure back on track. Under this latest version of the bill, members have closed some of the loopholes and added even more protective layers to the five-month ban, especially where young women are concerned.
