Conservatives fail in bid to make up science facts
The U.S. House of Representatives defeated the so-called Unborn Child Pain Awareness act. The bill tried to force doctors to tell women unproved facts about fetal pain. Some in the medical community think it could have been dangerous to women too because it would have doctors encouraging women to take larger doses of anesthetics. The vote was 250-162 and failed because it was being considered under suspension of the rules. Any bill considered under suspension of the rules needs a two-thirds majority to pass.
