US House Attacks Women's Health and Rights, Passes Unconstitutional Federal Abortion Ban

WASHINGTON -
Today the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill that would ban abortion in the United States after 20 weeks—a cruel and unconstitutional measure with only narrow exceptions for women with life-threatening conditions, rape survivors who have received medical care or counseling for the sexual assault at least 48-hours prior to receiving care, and minors who have reported rape or incest to law enforcement or child protective services.
