Monday, in a stunning defeat for Pro-Life Americans, the U.S. Senate failed to vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. This law would have prohibited abortions after 20 weeks.
Alabama Republican Party Chairman Terry Lathan was critical of U.S. Sen. Doug Jones, D-Alabama, who voted against the pro-life bill.
“After today’s vote, we now see Senator Doug Jones’ true colors,” Chairman Lathan said. “We will not forget his vote to block this bill banning late-term abortions. It is disgraceful that Senator Jones, who claims to want to ‘give voice to the challenges that face so many of our most vulnerable Americans’ would refuse to be a voice for the most vulnerable of them all: innocent lives in the womb. As one of the strongest pro-life states in the nation, Alabamians will hold Senator Jones accountable for this vote and every move he makes in the future regarding legislation that supports life at all stages.”
