Article Photos: Education battle tops Idaho news stories for 2012 1/15

Pro-choice advocate Margaret Doyle from Richmond, Va., is removed by Capitol Police from the General Assembly Building in Richmond after HB1, the bill that states human life begins at conception, passed the Senate Education and Health committee on Thursday, Feb. 23, 2012. Eight Republicans voted for the measure, and the committee's seven Democrats opposed it after an hour-long hearing on the bill that is similar to one in Missouri. The vote now sends the bill to the full Senate where Democrats and Republicans hold 20 seats apiece. (AP Photo/Richmond Times-Dispatch, Bob Brown)
