Although a majority of Senators—50 Republicans and 3 Democrats—voted in favor of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, it needed 60 votes to pass. That allowed the abortion lobby to kill the bill with just 44 votes. (The numbers don't add up to 100 because 3 Senators were not there vote, reportedly due to flight delays. Those three votes would not have been enough to tilt the scale.)
Find your Senators below. If they voted yes, thank them. If they voted no, express your opposition. And either way, remember in November.
