Two Red States Each Fail To Pass Pro-Life Protections By One Vote

Proposed abortion bans in two solid red states each failed by one vote this week, after being torpedoed by several Republicans who refused to vote for the pro-life measures.
In Nebraska, a six-week abortion ban could not reach the 33 votes it needed to get past a filibuster after a 32-15 vote in the state Senate and one Republican abstained from voting.
In South Carolina, three Republican women led a filibuster against a bill called the “Human Life Protection Act,” leading the vote to fail 22-21.
