House Sustains Veto of Abortion Funding Bill : Congress: Effort to override action to bar Medicaid money for rape and incest victims falls 51 votes short.

October 26, 1989|WILLIAM J. EATON | TIMES STAFF WRITER

"My vote should not be interpreted as a blanket vote for abortion," Pashayan said. "My concern is for women who have been treated brutally, are unable to pay for an abortion and are further victimized by having to carry an unwanted fetus to term."

His statement said that "recent, insightful debate over the abortion issue solidified his stance on this issue." Rep. Frank Pallone Jr. (D-N.J.), who supported the funding provision for the first time Wednesday, said he was Catholic and still in favor of an anti-abortion position. However, he said he had decided to vote in favor of overriding the veto, explaining: "I don't feel I've been elected to come down here and make those decisions for women."
