Renee Ellmers & the 2012, 2013 AND 2015 late-term abortion bans

US Rep. Renee Ellmers recently made a mess for herself on an issue that should have been a slam-dunk for her.  Ellmers has regularly been endorsed by pro-life activists.  Yet, last month, she stirred up a ruckus by pulling her sponsorship of a late-term abortion ban that had been wholeheartedly endorsed by her apparent allies in the pro-life movement. Ellmers offered up a number of excuses for her action.  She…
