(CNN)The Indiana House passed a Republican-sponsored bill on Friday that would ban abortion at all stages of pregnancy with limited exceptions.

The legislation passed the House in a 62-38 vote. Senate Bill 1, which was amended by the House, will now return to the Indiana Senate with amendments for consideration.
The final House vote on the bill Friday was preceded by more than five hours of additional debate on Friday among state representatives on both sides of the issue. Republican state Rep. Wendy McNamara, the bill's House sponsor, gave final remarks before the vote.
    "Too often these days we are exposed to much violence and death. This bill restores faith in humanity and faith that human life has value," McNamara said.
      After the bill passed in the House, the Indiana Democratic Party tweeted that their GOP counterparts seeking to ban abortion are "essentially declaring that their values are more righteous than those of their fellow citizens."Read MoreIndiana presently allows abortions up to 20 weeks after fertilization (or 22 weeks after the mother's last menstrual period).

      DCs Funk Parade returns in-person and for a good cause

      After a short time away, the eighth annual D.C. Funk Parade returned in person Saturday, bringing the funk back to U Street.

      The Funk Parade and concert series featured several stages, along with stops at the African American Civil War Memorial and the Reeves Center.

      Various genres from funk, hip-hop and R&B were represented, and at least three performers walked away with $200 gift cards.

      For advocates like David Oliver, the parade’s host, and The MusicianShip, a youth development organization that manages the event, one of the goals is to help U Street become what it once was.

      The pandemic “ravished” the District’s music scene, Oliver said, so the Funk Parade gave “artists who perform on U Street and all bus [stops] and who perform a chance to really be seen.”

      While the Funk Parade is a gentle reminder of D. C.s past on the top of the music scene, under the direction of The MusicianShip, it also is a way to support area musicians, after-school programs in D.C. Public Schools, and music lessons for kids.

      Oliver said he hopes the event continues to grow, as it now competes with Maryland and Virginia to attract and showcase musical talent.

      “Lately, everybody is going out in Maryland or Virginia, but D.C. is losing,” Oliver said. “This was the place where Luther [Vandross], Prince … and all of them came running [to D.C.] to perform.”
