Yesterday, 44 Democrats voted to block legislation to protect newborn babies who survive an abortion.

Not a single Republican voted against the legislation. Even pro-abortion Susan Collins voted in favor of protecting these babies.

Included in the 44 Democrats who block the bill are 10 Senators who claim to be Catholic:

  • Maria Cantwell, D-WA
  • **** Durbin, D-IL,
  • Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY
  • Tim Kaine, D-VA
  • Patrick Leahy, D-VT
  • Ed Markey, D-MA
  • Catherine Cortez Masto, D-NV
  • Bob Menendez, D-NJ
  • Patty Murray, D-WA
  • Jack Reed, D-RI

You can see the full list of how every Senator voted here. (Here’s a list of each Senator’s religious affiliation.)

Thankfully, Sen. Bob Casey, D-PA, and Joe Manchin, D-WV, voted yes.

If the other Catholic Democrats had joined with them, this legislation would have passed the Senate!
