Senate Democrat abortion bill loses 51-49

A Democrat bill that would have allowed abortion for almost any reason up to nine months of pregnancy was defeated on Wednesday in a 51-49 vote.

The Women’s Health Protection Act was voted down by all 50 Republicans and West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin.

“Our Democrat colleagues want to vote for abortion on demand through all nine months, until the moment before the baby is born — a failed show vote that will only prove their own [extremism],” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said.

Oddly, the act intentionally removed the words “woman,” “women,” and “female,” from the bill, instead using the word person to refer to those who can have a child.

The bill was pushed for a vote despite an expected loss as Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer wanted every senator on record regarding the issue.

The new bill will now rest as the Supreme Court prepares to release a ruling that could send laws about abortion back to the states.
