A faction of the American Bar Association is fighting to convince the nation's largest lawyers group to rescind its endorsement of abortion rights.

The ABA's Assembly was scheduled to meet Monday to consider rescinding an endorsement of abortion rights approved last February by the ABA's House of Delegates, the policymaking body for the nation's largest lawyers organization.An intense lobbying drive has been mounted on both sides. Opponents of the endorsement have received help from the Roman Catholic church and other pro-life groups in their drive to repeal the policy.
