WA Dems Vote Against Risking Profits of Abortionists

Yesterday Congress voted on the "Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act of 2006." The bill would have required abortionists to inform women seeking abortions after 20 weeks gestation (yes, Virginia, that's 5+ months into pregnancy, when most moms are showing) that the baby almost certainly can experience pain, and could be administered anesthesia.

The bill garnered the support of 60% of the House, but failed to pass because it was being voted on under a suspension of rules which would have required 2/3rds support.

How did our Representatives vote?

Voting for were:
Reichert, Rodgers (formerly McMorris), Hastings [all Republicans]

Voting against:
Inslee, Larsen, Baird, Dicks, McDermott, Smith [all Democrats]
