No Interstate Abortions:

The House of Representatives voted 270 to 157 this week to pass the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act, sponsored by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R.-Fla.). The bill would make it a federal crime for an adult other than a parent to transport a minor across states lines to procure an abortion if this is done to evade a state parental notification or consent law.

A survey by the Polling Company showed that 82% of Americans agree that someone should not be allowed to take someone else’s child across state lines for an abortion without the parents’ knowledge. Still, these 11 House Republicans voted against the measure: Rep. Charles Bass (N.H.), Rep. Judy Biggert (Ill.), Rep. Sherwood Boehlert (N.Y.), Rep. Mike Castle (Del.), Rep. Wayne Gilchrist (Md.), Rep. Nancy Johnson (Conn.), Rep. Mark Kirk (Ill.), Rep. Tim Murphy (Pa.), Rep. Ron Paul (Tex.), Rep. Chris Shays (Conn.) and Rep. Rob Simmons (Conn.).
