Activists gather on Capitol Hill to protest a House resolution that bans D.C. from using local funds for abortions.
The provision, which is part of a larger House bill targeting abortion funding across the country, passed in the House Wednesday. But organizers say they do not expect the Senate to take it up. President Obama has also issued a veto threat.
Nonetheless, activists are on the Hill, including three women on the D.C. Council and other abortion rights activists.
The crowd is not as large the last protest here, when Mayor Vincent Gray and others were arrested, but that may have to do in part with the weather.
