Republican leaders in the House have pulled a piece of legislation that was to be debated and voted on Thursday because of what Roll Call called "a rift". The bill would have banned abortion after 20 weeks with exceptions being made in the cases of rape. Two female Republican lawmakers, Rep. Rene Ellmers of North Carolina and Jackie Walorski of Indiana raised concerns about the piece of legislation.

According to the Washington Post, Republican leaders dropped the bill because of the revolt.

House Republican leaders abruptly dropped plans late Wednesday to vote on an anti-abortion bill amid a revolt by female GOP lawmakers concerned that the legislation's restrictive language would once again spoil the party's chances of broadening its appeal to women and younger voters.
