Pro-life groups rebuked members of the U.S. House for voting to remove the ratification deadline for the Equal Rights Amendment, which they argue would enshrine the right to abortion on demand into the U.S. Constitution.

The House voted 222-204 to remove the 1979 ratification deadline for the Equal Rights Amendment Wednesday, which is billed as a necessary measure to ensure equal rights for women in the U.S.

Four Republicans joined all Democrats in voting to nullify the ratification deadline: Reps. John Curtis, R-Utah, Brian Fitzpatrick, R-Penn., Nicole Malliotakis, R-N.Y., and Tom Reed, R-N.Y.
