House Approves Late Term Abortion Ban

Republicans have won House approval for a late term abortion ban.

The victory comes after party leaders re-wrote the measure to drop rape provisions.

At first, republican women rebelled against the legislation, which forced party leaders to cancel a vote on it back in January.

Language allowing abortions for rape victims who reported the attack to police was taken out.

The measure now says they need to receive counseling or medical care at least two days before an abortion.
