Vote Description

HR 36 (Roll Call 268) Late-Term Abortion Restrictions

This motion invokes cloture (ends debate) on the bill, allowing the Senate to vote on the bill. This bill prohibits abortions where the probable age of the fetus is 20 weeks or older, but includes exceptions for cases of rape, incest, or the life of the mother. ACU believes abortion is a human tragedy, supports restricting the practice and educating patients, and supported both this bill and the motion to end debate. The Senate rejected the cloture motion on September 22, 2015 by a vote of 54-42 (60 votes were required to pass)
