House tables resolution commemorating Roe V. Wade decision
The roll call vote to table was 239-111.
The resolution says the court in the decision “protects every woman’s ability to make her own personal medical decisions, without the interference of politicians.”
It says the House “recognizes the critical importance of continued access to safe and legal abortion.”
Opponents argued that the resolution is purely political and “celebrates the destruction of over 500 million pre-born children.”
