Michigan House doesn't vote on ban of abortion procedure

Looks like Andy did good, at least for today. Don't have the details yet, this comes fresh off the AP.

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.
