Washington (CNN)Mark it down as a rare win for House GOP moderates. After scrambling into the evening on Wednesday, House Republican leaders decided to scrap a vote on a controversial anti-abortion measure scheduled to coincide with an annual gathering of anti-abortion advocates on Thursday because they couldn't round up enough support.

"Mark it down as a rare win for House GOP moderates."
Mark it down as yet another all-too-common win for House GOP moderates, and yet another defeat for those whose sweet faces we will never see in this life.
Nice going, GOP. Murderers.
Let’s see: Republicans cave. Yup. That is republicans. RINOs cave. Yup, that’s RINOs. And even republican conservatives cave, yup, another one. Straight ticket vote for republicans, cave, cave, cave, cave, cave, cave . . . . . . always the same for the Worthless As Dog Crap Republicans. Damn, I wish there was truly a third party called the Conservative Party of True Patriotic Americans.
...is anyone out there EVER going to fight the American left on ANY issue?
There are some patriots in Congress fighting the good fight, such as senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. But then look at how they get treated by members of their own party!
I don’t know how many times I’ve read that headline, regardless of the topic.
I’m bloody sick of it.
True. And talk about explosive and misleading headlines. This one wins a Chicken Dinner. Yes, the Repugs chickened out and failed again. But they did choose to walk away from a lost battle as they instead focus on banning tas dollars to pay for abortions.
The Gop is really showing themselves this week.
True. In addition to this hot mess, the Senate also voted 98-1 yesterday in favor of an amendment stating that “Climate Change is not a Hoax”.
The motto of the Republican Party:
Caving on Principles. Its What We Do.
I thought it was .... “Vote Republican. We Suck Less.”
It’s tough to cave on principles when you have none.
Seriously? Strides like this?

The devil, accepted by humanity, has perverted the protective impulse (of both women and men) into a selfish angle.
Ultimately the right approach is not to be railing at people but to ask them where their heart went.
I know there are many ways to present stats on this topic and I appreciate your thoughtful input. Here are a couple of previous FR threads on the stats of minority abortions...
WINNING! gop style
GOP will not:
-stop executive order on amnesty
I didn’t leave the GOP - they left me.
“Agree...the Dems seem PERFECTLY HAPPY to be wiping out generation after generation of their voters. It is tempting not to get in their way. By some estimates there would be 50% more blacks today if they hadnt been aborted. Political races in the South would be much closer if they let those kids live (possibly even Baby Fat could have been re-elected)...and the Republicans would probably be either totally shot as a party, or at least neutered.”
I wonder what our country would currently be like if this had not been allowed to happen over the last 40 years. What would we look like? Demographically? Politically? Legally? Socially? What would be different in the lives of modern Americans? How would we be better or worse off?
“I no longer buy into the illusion that our nation will recover from this downward spiral. Elections wont fix this.”
Ironically, our only hope is the financial collapse that Obama is trying to bring about via Cloward-Pivan. Then we can rebuild from the ashes.
“No, they need to get 218 CONSERVATIVES in office. Were getting very close, but were not quite there...even with 247 Republicans.”
Oh, thank you! Please reiterate again and again! Another method would be to figuratively shout and stomp the majority we have into being more Conservative.
At the risk of being presumptuous, it could be both : )
” If I took a shot of bourbon everytime stephenjohnbanker and sickoflibs were right about the Spineless Wonders of the GOP, Id never be sober.”
Add Norm to that mix. We never miss: )

I absolutely agree with you, but if they WOULD pass a 20 week abortion ban with rape/incest exceptions, then they should put the exceptions in and pass the bill as at least one step in the right direction, instead of this giant step in the wrong direction.
