Legislation Intended to Protect Abortion Blocked by Senate Republicans

Objectivity 4.2 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.9

On Wednesday, legislation intended to protect abortion was blocked by Republican Senators ahead of a possible ruling this summer striking down the Roe v. Wade decision.  “Our Democratic colleagues want to vote for abortion on demand through all nine months, until the moment before a baby is born. A failed show vote that will only prove their own extremism” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said.  The battle lines in the Senate over abortion rights have been clear for years, but a leaked Supreme Court draft, reported by Politico, reignited a firestorm on Capitol Hill.
