Parental consent for abortions is one step closer to becoming law. The House gave final approval yesterday to the legislation that would require a parent's permission before a girl under the age of 18 could have an abortion.

The House postponed a final vote on a controversial bill banning a type of late- term abortion.
The bill's sponsor, Delegate Robert Marshall, was absent from yesterday's session to attend a funeral.
The U-S Supreme Court struck down a similar bill two years ago.
Marshall's bill reclassifies a procedure known as ``partial birth abortion'' as ``medically induced infanticide."

Marshall, a Republican from Prince William, says he hopes the court will look differently on the bill if it is presented as the killing of a person rather than the destruction of a fetus.
The vote was put off until Monday.

(( It was just past 5 PM on Friday, December 15th 1967. The Silver Bridge - a connection between West Virginia and Ohio - was packed with people heading home from work and Christmas shoppers. Then the unthinkable happened. An "eye bar" pin gave way. The bridge fell into the Ohio River. Vehicles lined up bumper to bumper had nowhere to go but down. [19:06:36]

[runs= 18 ish]

In fact, it took more than a month. Parts of the bridge had to be cut and moved to get to the victims. Some people were concerned that tampering with the bridge would mean never finding out what really happened. Officials disagreed.

Weather also complicated recovery efforts - rain and bitter cold temperatures. But crews didn't give up. They stayed at it around the clock and eventually recovered 44 of the victims. Two bodies were never found. That's Virginia Newsreel. I'm Keith Humphry.
