The following information is from the National Committee for a Human Life Amendment. Please use the links below to see how your Senators voted on these bills and take the necessary actions.
On Tuesday, the U.S. Senate failed to advance the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (S. 3275) and the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 311). In the Senate, 60 votes are needed to overcome a filibuster and advance a bill to a vote on passage. The Pain-Capable bill would protect unborn children from late-term abortions. It failed to advance by a vote of 53 to 44. The Born-Alive bill would prohibit infanticide by ensuring that a child born alive following an abortion would receive the same degree of care to preserve his/her life and health as would be given to any other child born alive at the same gestational age. It failed to advance by a vote of 56 to 41.

Thank you to all who took action to urge your senators to support these bills. Please take action again to thank those senators who supported these bills and express your deep disappointment to those senators who opposed these bills.
