|Talk of human rights is but a charade, if it is only for the "chosen" of the human family.|
Yesterday a majority of the House voted for H.R. 3803, the “D.C. Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” by a vote of 220-154-2 with 55 absences. Of the 55 Members that were absent, 25 are cosponsors of H.R. 3803. The roll call vote is available " target="_blank">here. Since a two-thirds majority was not achieved, the bill failed. However, it could be brought up for further consideration under a rule in the future.
In addition, Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) has filed the “D.C. Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” as an amendment to S. 3414, which is now pending in the Senate. It is not yet clear whether the Senate will vote on the amendment.
