Let us continue to march forward to shine the light on the work that still needs to be done. #MarchForLife — Mitt Romney (@MittRomney) January 22, 2015 The House voted Thursday to permanently end taxpayer-funded abortions, and to ensure that Obamacare is not used to help fund the purchase of insurance plans that cover abortion.

The vote was meant to pay tribute to the 42nd annual March for Life rally, which marks the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion.

Members passed the bill in a mostly partisan 242-179 vote that saw three Democrats vote for it, and one Republican vote against it. But while the bill passed, it was something of makeup call for Republicans who were hoping to pass an entirely different abortion bill earlier in the week.

Republicans initially started work on a bill to ban abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy, legislation that the GOP also passed in the last Congress. But it was held up by several Republican women who were worried about language that said the rape and incest exceptions to the ban would only be allowed if those crimes were reported.

Those worries led GOP leaders to scuttle the bill for now, although Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.) said the legislation would soon be tweaked and brought up again in the House shortly.

Smith offered the substitute bill that passed today — the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act.

This is the march the media don’t want you to see. The March for Life is by far the largest annual rally in Washington, D.C., but each year, it’s met with a near-black-out from major media. Last year, in a new campaign to condemn the media's silence on abortion, the Media Research Center invited marchers from across the country to send in video footage for a short documentary of what the march is really like. The result is this documentary – a compilation of footage from the 2014 March for Life, the story the media refuse to report.
