Partial Birth Abortion Vote Coming May 21-22
After three weeks of sporadic negotiations, a tentative agreement to take up the PBA ban along with some bills regarding contraception seemed to be in place. As this week unfolded, however, no confirmation was forthcoming that the proabortion contingent in the House was prepared to stick to the deal. Finally, by Thursday afternoon, House Speaker Andy Dillon personally (face-to-face) assured RLM President Barb Listing that the vote would take place next week. While there is still reason to mistrust certain members of the proabortion forces, who may yet try to "blow up" the deal at the last minute, prolife House members are prepared to take whatever procedural action is necessary to see that the vote takes place.
