CWN Editor's Note: “It is appalling that even one senator, let alone more than 40, voted to continue the brutal dismemberment of nearly full-grown infants, and voted against protecting babies who survive abortion,” Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City (KS) said following Senate votes on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S.311) and Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (S.3275). Each bill passed by a 53-44 margin (vote 1, vote 2)—short of the 60 needed to overcome a filibuster.
