The Senate failed this evening to pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would’ve banned abortions after 20 weeks, after Democrats filibustered the bill. In a 51–46 vote, the bill failed to make it out of debate and to a final floor vote.
Two Republicans — Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska — continued their support for abortion by crossing the aisle to vote with the Democrats against the bill. Meanwhile, three Democrats — Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Bob Casey Jr. of Pennsylvania, and Joe Donnelly of Indiana — broke ranks and voted with Republicans in favor of the legislation. The vote split along similar party lines in 2015, the last time the Senate considered similar legislation.
Among the Democrats opposing the legislation were several from states that voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election: Jon Tester of Montana, Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters of Michigan, Sherrod Brown of Ohio, Doug Jones of Alabama, and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota.
The bill was based on scientific evidence showing that fetuses have the capacity to feel pain beginning at 20-weeks’ gestation. This vote is yet another indication of how radical today’s Democratic party has become on abortion. The 46 senators who opposed this legislation today stand not for choice, but for late-term abortion procedures that involve lethally injecting and dismembering highly developed, near-viable fetuses. In supporting this gruesome reality, they stand against a majority of Americans.
Recent polling from Marist finds that two-thirds of Americans support a 20-week abortion ban, including more than half of Democrats and more than half of self-described pro-choice Americans. Though the Pain-Capable bill didn’t pass tonight, the vote forced pro-abortion Democrats to show Americans how out of touch they continue to be on the question of human life — even as science and technology prove them wrong.
“The vote forced pro-abortion Democrats to show Americans how out of touch they continue to be on the question of human life — even as science and technology prove them wrong,” America, let us show the democrats the door, because they don’t represent our ethical, scientific and technological values.
I was stunned with the voting outcome because the Almighty Father had affirmed He would cleanse our land. Consult the article God’s Judgements on Abortion.
“God will soon chastise California with a big earthquake to warn us that abortion is the murder of the children He has created at His image. If we don’t repent and ban abortion, God will send crescendo judgments to America until we hit the abysm of desolation and then rush to Reverse Roe vs Wade.”
