How Small Group Of GOP Women Blocked 20-Week Abortion Limit
In one of the House GOP's first chances to challenge President Obama, a controversial abortion limit never even made it out of the chamber.By Cliff Judy | January 22, 2015
Well, that didn't take long. In one of its first chances to go head-to-head with President Obama, and backed by a fully Republican-controlled Congress, the House GOP found out not all conservative agenda items are easy to push.
Thursday marks the 42nd anniversary of the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade abortion decision, and House GOP leaders planned to schedule a vote banning abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
It was the last agenda item mentioned Tuesday just before the House wrapped up for the day to prepare for Obama's State of the Union.
