The Hill Reports: Democrats block two Senate abortion bills
On Tuesday, Senate Democrats block two abortion-related bills proposed by Sen. Lindsey Graham and Sen. Ben Sasse.
Graham proposed a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks, except if the mother's life was In danger or if they were a victim of rape or incest. Sasse's bill would penalize doctors who fail to "exercise the proper degree of care in the case of a child who survives an abortion or attempted abortion."
Graham's bill failed in a 53-44 vote, with Democratic Sens. Bob Casey (Pa.) and Joe Manchin (W.Va.) voting for it and GOP Sens. Susan Collins (Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) voting against it.
Sasse's bill failed 56-41, with Casey, Manchin and Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) voting for it.
Mitch McConnell has repeatedly refused to read or pass any bills from the House, but has the time to create politically motivated bills to distract voters from the real issues at hand.
We need Representatives who protect our right to choose.
