UPDATE: Pro Life Bill in the Senate falls short on Monday

Republicans supportive of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act failed to break the Democrat filibuster of S. 2311 when the cloture vote failed on a 51 to 46 vote Monday afternoon.

BTW: Two Republicans voted against the bill: U.S. Senators Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK).  (Senator John McCain (R-AZ) did not vote).

Three Democrats did join Republicans in support of the bill – U.S. Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV), Bob Casey (D-PA), and Joe Donnelly (D-IN).

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was the chief sponsor of the bill that President Donald Trump said he would sign. The measure would have banned abortion after 20 weeks post-fertilization saving an estimated 18,000 babies per year.    https://caffeinatedthoughts.com/2018/01/democrats-defeat-pain-capable-unborn-child-protection-act/
