Last evening the Senate defeated the Nelson/Hatch Ammendment which would have prohibited the use of federal funds to pay for abortions. The vote, largely along party lines was 54-45.
The two Republicans who voted against Nelson/Hatch were, not surprisingly Collins and Snowe of Maine. Six Democrats voted for the ammendment - Bayh (IN), Casey (PA), Conrad (ND), Dorgan (ND), Nelson (NE), and Pryor (AR).
Just 54 Senators voted to use your money to pay for abortions. Elections matter.
