Trump reacts to Senate's Failure to Advance 20-week abortion restrictions

The Senate voted Monday on whether to stop the Democrats' filibuster of the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, legislation that would ban abortions after 20 weeks - as neither Congress nor state legislatures can vote to ban all abortions under Roe v. Wade.

The Senate approved the bill 38-11, sending it to the House.

"Furthermore, the United States is now one of only seven countries that allows abortions beyond 20 weeks", he said, naming Canada, China, Netherlands, North Korea, Singapore and Vietnam as the other six. But the most votes consistently go to those who, you know, say that it's a bad thing to torture unborn children to death by dismemberment (even though they could not care less about it). We're reaching out to low-turnout pro-life voters as well as Democratic women and Hispanics to educate them on their Senator's record on life.

"It's a human being, it's alive and we should not only consider the needs and desires of the mother but we should also consider the infant", said Carl Malito, member of Mesa County Right to Life. Lindsey Graham, R - South Carolina, sponsor of the bill, said in statement following the vote.

A little more than a third of states have passed similar 20-week abortion bans and this remains to be a notable partisan issue. Almost six in 10 Republicans supported the ban, while almost six in 10 Democrats opposed it - a notable partisan divide. Notably, 49 percent of Democrats supported the bill.

"It's a misleading bill that would restrict a woman's constitutionally protected right of access to a safe and legal abortion", Leahy spokesperson David Carle said Tuesday.

"I am certainly not going to stop passing these bills and making sure we protect life", she said.

The bill calls for a ban on abortions after five months, and would also threaten doctors who perform abortions after that time to five years in jail.

At 20 weeks past conception a baby can sleep and wake in the womb.

Only seven countries in the entire world allow elective abortions at this late stage.

Abortion foes say that if enough states pass such bans, Congress will be more likely to follow. Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) and Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) have already indicated they would vote for it. Sen. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals invalidated Idaho's law in 2015.

Trump highlighted the scientific evidence showing unborn babies feel pain in late abortions. "Sometimes the patient may develop complications of the pregnancy and the treatment is delivery and when that is at 20 or 21 weeks, that means terminating the pregnancy", Grossman said.
