The Senate voted 55-39 against the amendment, with a handful ofDemocrats joining most Republicans in voting pro-life for it.

I'm sure someone is working on a list of Catholic politicians who voted against this. What is so sickening about this to me is the problem highlighted in China. Abortions are being forced, often violently and our tax dollars will be funding it.


Oh, I forgot....they were busy voting the for the oppression and abuse of women and babies in other countries.
