The Patriot Post® · Rabidly Pro-Abortion Dems Kill 20-Week Abortion Ban
Even with two-thirds of Americans supporting a ban on abortions after 20 weeks, the Senate fell short of passing the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which the House passed earlier this month. The Senate version, which needed 60 votes thanks to a Democrat filibuster, failed 51 to 46.

While demanding rights and protections for those children brought into this nation illegally, Democrats have no room in their hearts for standing up for lives, rights and protections for the unborn.
