The U. S. Senate on Monday rejected the “Women’s Health Protection Act,” a radical abortion bill aimed at enshrining abortion on-demand and up-to-birth in federal law as well as voiding all state laws aimed at protecting the lives of the unborn.
The measure, which needed 60 votes to bypass the filibuster, failed 46–48 with all but one Democrat voting in favor — Sen. Joe Manchin (D‑WV). Sen. Bob Casey (D‑PA) — who has described himself as pro-life and whose father, former Pennsylvania Gov. Bob Casey, Sr. (D), took Planned Parenthood to the Supreme Court over abortion — voted in favor of the measure as well.
“Biden, Pelosi and Schumer’s ‘Abortion on Demand Until Birth Act’ would enshrine an unlimited abortion ‘right’ in federal law and block common ground pro-life laws around the country, including limits on late-term abortions when unborn babies feel pain, bans on lethal discrimination abortions, and many more,” Susan B Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said ahead of the vote.
