Fox News has an article on the Republicans desire to pass the ban on Partial-Birth Abortion. For those who don't remember, Congress passed this twice, and Clinton vetoed it both times. The override of the veto failed by one vote in the Senate.
This is a Republican issue, but many Democrats are for it as well. The House easily passed it (and overrode the veto). The main backup is the Senate. Even then, it passed twice in the Senate. It came up a third time, but the Democratic Leadership didn't allow it to come to the floor. However, with both a Republican House and Senate, it should pass. I'd assume that there are enough votes in the Senate to cloture any filibusters.
This is wonderful. Partial-Bith abortion is very bad. Even reading about the procedure makes me want to puke. When congress first took it up, one person wanted to bring in drawn images of the procedure, yet the feminists amongst the Democrats refused to allow it. Apparently, they realized what the drawn images would show.
We'll hide the worst part. Gur cebprqher vaibyirf chapghevat gur onol'f urnq naq fhpxvat uvf oenvaf bhg fb gur fxhyy pbyyncfrf. Va zbfg pnfrf gur onol unf nyernql orra xvyyrq (jvgu qehtf) guvf vf abg nyjnlf gur pnfr.
I just hope they get this ban through.
