Well the good news for women couldn't last too long. The House is set to pass today a ban on partial-birth abortions; the wording of the measure "adds up to a sweeping prohibition that would, in effect, overturn Roe v. Wade by criminalizing the most common procedures used after the first trimester, but well before viability." The wording of this measure replicates that of a state law that was struck down as unconstitutional by the Supreme Court 3 years ago, and furthermore does not allow for an exception to protect the health of the woman.

Keep your eye on this one...
