The Democratic-controlled Michigan House is putting off a potential vote on banning a procedure opponents call partial-birth abortion.
Abortion rights supporters say the legislation is a waste of time since the procedure already is outlawed by federal law. They had urged Democratic House Speaker Andy Dillon to not allow a vote and not "pander" to groups seeking to limit women's reproductive rights.
Never give them a stick to beat you with, and that is exactly what this legislation was designed to do. Good call Democrats.
