This week Republicans passed a bill to ban most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, which House Speaker John Boehner called the "most pro-life legislation” to ever come before the House. The bill depends on a recent study that found that a small fraction of babies born at 22 weeks can survive. NewsHour political director Lisa Desjardins reports on why the bill is on the GOP agenda.
