What does this even mean?

Via Lawyers, Guns and Money I find this piece from the Washington Post:

Republicans Vote Against Moms; No Word Yet on Puppies, Kittens

On Wednesday afternoon, the House had just voted, 412 to 0, to pass H. Res. 1113, "Celebrating the role of mothers in the United States and supporting the goals and ideals of Mother's Day," when Rep. Todd Tiahrt (R-Kan.), rose in protest.

"Mr. Speaker, I move to reconsider the vote," he announced.

Rep. Kathy Castor (D-Fla.), who has two young daughters, moved to table Tiahrt's request, setting up a revote. This time, 178 Republicans cast their votes against mothers.

Can someone tell me what they were even voting on? That is a really great headline, though.
