On Capitol Hill, the Republican-led House on Wednesday approved legislation that would require reproductive care providers to work to preserve the life of an infant born after a failed attempt at an abortion — a situation that is exceedingly rare. Jacqueline Ayers of Planned Parenthood Federation of America said the bill was “deliberately misleading and offensive to pregnant people and the doctors and nurses who provide their care.” House Republicans also approved a resolution condemning what they called “attacks” on anti-abortion groups and churches. Neither piece of legislation is expected to advance in the Democratic-controlled Senate.
