Last night, pro-life senators voted down a radical abortion bill in the US Senate. The effort to move the legislation forward predictably failed along party lines by a vote of 46-48. One pro-life Democrat joined Senate Republicans to block the extreme measure.
In light of the United States Supreme Court’s review of Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban, pro-abortion forces have been obsessed with pushing an aggressive abortion agenda in Congress.
What makes HR 3755 – the “Abortion on Demand Until Birth Act” – so radical is that not only would it legalize abortion under federal law, it would also invalidate all existing state laws restricting abortion and make it unlawful to pass any new laws limiting abortion.
This legislation would, for example, legalize late-term abortion. It would legalize partial-birth abortion. It would legalize abortion based on race, sex, and disability discrimination.
Thankfully, there were enough pro-life senators to block this terrible legislation from moving forward.
Below is a breakdown of the vote.
