WASHINGTON (AP) — In an embarrassing setback, House Republicans abruptly decided Wednesday to drop planned debate of a bill criminalizing virtually all late-term abortions after objections from GOP women and other lawmakers left them short of votes.
The decision came on the eve of the annual March for Life, when thousands of anti-abortion demonstrators stream to Washington to mark the anniversary of the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion.

The House Goobers were all set to pass a severe anti-abortion bill just in time for a big right to life gathering in DC when some of their own objected to some of the provisions and they had to cancel the vote. A real public debate would have been terrific for the choice movement.
