Action Needed in the U.S. Senate
from Marie Tasy, Executive Director
New Jersey Right to Life
This past Friday, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to pass H.R. 3504, the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Act by a vote of 248-177, with one voting present Roll call vote 506 and H.R. 3134, the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015 by a vote of 241-187, with 1 voting present (Roll Call vote 505).
We received word that U.S. Senate is expected to vote as early as Tuesday, September 22nd on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 36). This bill passed the House of Representatives previously on May 13.
We also understand that the U.S. Senate will vote on an amendment to defund Planned Parenthood some time in the near future as part of a Continuing Resolution needed to fund the federal government. This is the second time the U.S. Senate will be voting to Defund Planned Parenthood. On August 3, the U.S. Senate failed to garner the 60 votes needed to pass legislation to defund Planned Parenthood. Unfortunately, NJ's two U.S. Senators Menendez and Booker shamefully voted No.
However, we must let them know that we are not going to go away and we're not going to let them off the hook. Please take action needed below.
