Georgia Crossover Day Abortion: Georgia Sen. Judson Hill, R–Marietta, applauds as a bill he sponsored restricting abortion coverage in plans available through the state health insurance exchange is passed on the Senate floor, Monday, March 3, 2014, in Atlanta. State senators voted 35-18 to advance the bill, which now heads to the House for consideration. The federal health care law allows states to draft legislation prohibiting abortion coverage in qualified health plans offered through an exchange. Supporters of the Georgia effort say 24 states have done so. Democrats opposed the bill, calling it a continuation of a "war on women" and saying it infringes on a woman's right to choose.
