Senate Dems Block Vote on Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act

On Saturday, Senate Democrats effectively blocked a final vote in this legislative session on S.403, which would "prohibit taking minors across State lines in circumvention of laws requiring the involvement of parents in abortion decisions" by voting down a cloture motion to end debate on the legislation, brought forth by Senator Bennett of Utah on behalf of Bill Frist, John Ensign, Tom Coburn, Craig Thomas, Jim DeMint, Wayne Allard, Mitch McConnell, Trent Lott, Jim Bunning, Conrad Burns, Ted Stevens, Johnny Isakson, John Cornyn, Jeff Sessions, Larry Craig, Mike Crapo, and John Thune. The House passed their version last week, but had added provisions.
