Result of Vote on Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act
The cloture vote (the requirement of 60 votes in order to end debate on a bill and advance it for a vote on the floor) on S 311, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, failed with a vote of 53-44 in the US Senate.
Only three Democrats voted ‘yea’ – Senator Bob Casey, Jr. (D-PA), Doug Jones (D-AL) and Joe Manchin (D-WV). No Republicans voted ‘nay,’ however three did not vote – Kevin Cramer (R-ND), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Tim Scott (R-SC)
Thank Senators Bob Casey, Jr. and Pat Toomey for voting to protect babies who are born alive after a failed abortion.
