Those "moderates" again
By a 227-201 vote on May 22, the House of Representatives defeated
Rep. Loretta Sanchez's bill to repeal the overseas abortion ban
, which "bars women from using even personal funds to obtain abortions at military hospitals abroad except in cases of rape, incest or danger to the mother's life."
The list of those favoring the ban includes Republican Thomas M. Davis of Fairfax. In 2002 that "liberally-biased" Washington Post endorsed
Davis for re-election, deeming him an "effective moderate Republican"
who can "forge bipartisan support for concerns in the District of Columbia as well as the suburbs."
