Anti-Choice Activists Urge Clinton to Sign Abortion Ban

Roman Catholic cardinals led a 500-person anti-abortion protest urging President Clinton not to veto the first abortion ban. Clinton has stated he will veto the bill which would ban a rare form of abortion used to save the life, health, and future fertility of a woman. The bill would make the procedure illegal and punishable by law unless no other procedure could save the life of the woman, but it does not take a woman's health into account.
