Wonder what “soon” will be….
Check it out:
Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.) told Congress on Thursday that a pro-life measure, the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, will come to the House floor “soon.” But it won’t happen on Thursday, as planned. Thursday is the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, and tens of thousands of people are taking part in the annual March for Life.
Republican leaders pulled the Pain Capable bill last night. The bill, which would ban abortion at 20 weeks, included an exemption for women who say they were raped and reported that rape to law enforcement. But a few Republicans objected to that provision, since many rapes are not reported.
