Senate Votes Against Reinstating Global Gag Rule

Emily Douglas

The Senate voted 60-37 against an amendment to the SCHIP bill that proposed to reinstate the global gag rule.

At 12:40pm EST today the U.S. Senate voted 60-37 against the Martinez (R-FL) amendment (PDF) to the SCHIP bill that proposed to reinstate the global gag rule.  While Senate Republicans must have known they did not have the votes to pass such an amendment, it is clear that Obama’s dropping the family planning provision from the economic stimulus package didn’t win him a pass from Republicans’ anti-choice shenanigans.

Advocates I spoke with were surprised by the introduction of the bill. 

The results of the roll call vote Senator by Senator can by found here.
