The measure is unlikely to become law.

They passed nothing. A bill that unconstitutional is not a bill, it a waste of tax payers time. If you hire someone to build widgets and they spend their time outside polishing their car, they they would get fired. Luckily one of the freeloaders won't be seeking re-election.

Can't resist trying to manage women's ladyparts, can you, GOP? What's the latest on your drive for a smaller government?

And they don't even polish their car very well either.

It would be great if women would "manage their ladyparts" better so there was no need to remove babyparts at all. There are no many resources available to avoid pregnancy; abortion should not be a method of birth control.

Keep your pants on, "ladies." That way you won't need to murder your baby in an "abortion". Problem solved, women's reproductive rights respected. End of story.

Yep, our congress "hard at work". Another do-nothing, symbolic bill. Grandstanding 101. When you have nothing of value to contribute, vote to repeal Obamacare, limit reproductive freedom or make it easier for us to get more guns. OK, OK. We get it, we all know where you stand. Now if you aren't going to do anything productive, then go back to sleep. The lowest rated congress ever!

When you restrict women's access to health care (Planned Parenthood for example), then you try to put restrictions on birth control (non problem with insurance paying for viagra...but heaven forbid it pay for birth control), the result will be unwanted pregnancies. How many kids have those 23 men on the house committee that thought this up adopted lately? I don't necessarily like the fact that abortions happen; but then it's pretty much none of my business...

I wonder if they took a poll of anti-abortion folks (and we all are really) how many have made any attempts to adopt unwanted, homeless children...interesting thought. Always wondered how many who play the politics of it actually do anything besides complain

I imagine Mr. Kline will find out if his views are consistent with those of his constituents.
