Abortion doctors face prison terms

Washington - The House of Representatives voted to impose a two-year prison term for doctors who perform certain late-term abortions - the first time Congress has moved to outlaw a specific abortion procedure. By a 288-139 vote the House passed a bill banning so-called partial birth abortions, a rare procedure in which a foetus is partly delivered feet- first, scissors inserted in the base of the skull and the brains suctioned out while the head is still in the birth canal.
