184 of 188 Democratic U.S. House Representatives voted against a ban on late term abortions. (See also repost from March 2006)
May 13, 2015 – The United States House of Representatives has passed a ban on most abortions after 20 weeks’ gestation, ending four months of often vitriolic debate among Capitol Hill Republicans and pro-life activists about the contentious piece of legislation.
The bill passed 242-184, largely along party lines, with one member voting present. Four Republicans broke ranks and voted against the bill, while four Democrats voted in favor.
President Obama has previously vowed to veto the bill, should it pass both the House and the Senate.

“This is now a core Democratic moral value. We’ve brought it center stage. The party passed a resolution in support of marriage equality at its convention last April, and it won’t be very long before every Democrat with credibility could not run in this state without supporting a woman’s right to choose and supporting marriage equality.” [March 2006: Assemblyman Mark Leno (D-San Francisco), author of the California gay marriage bill.]
