Cardinals Push for Override of Abortion Ban Veto

Eight Roman Catholic cardinals have written a three-page letter to President Clinton condemning his decision to veto a bill banning an abortion procedure used to save the life, health, or future fertility of a woman. The cardinals pledged to make their concern a public issue on the same day House Republicans postponed a vote to override the veto. The override would likely pass easily in the House but is short of the needed two-thirds in the Senate. There was no indication of when the measure, sent to the Judiciary Committee, would be voted on
