Congress Votes On Abortion Ban After Letting Children’s Health Program Expire

Bob Goodlatte (R-W VA) authored anti abortion bill in HouseHouse Republicans are expected to pass a bill on Tuesday that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy ― a move the Trump administration said will “help to facilitate a culture of life.” The move comes three days after Congress allowed a federal children’s health program to expire, potentially leaving millions of poor children without insurance coverage.

The abortion bill, which the House has passed before, would shorten the time period in which a woman can legally seek an abortion, based on the medically unsupported claim that fetuses can feel pain at 20 weeks. Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, authored an op-ed on the anti-abortion website LifeNews.com on Monday touting the legislation.
