SBA List Will Score Vote on Pro-life Resolution

Washington, D.C.Today in a narrow 49-49 vote, pro-abortion members of the U.S. Senate blocked a resolution introduced by Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) that would reinstate the Protect Life Rule, reversing the Biden administration policy of allowing taxpayer funding of abortion businesses in the Title X family planning program.

All Senate Democrats present except for Joe Manchin (D-WV) voted to block S.J. Res. 41. In a letter to senators today, SBA List indicated it would score in favor of the resolution.

SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser slammed the vote in a statement:

 “The strong majority of Americans agree abortion is not ‘family planning’ and tax dollars should not be funneled to abortion businesses. Ignoring the clear will of the people as well as the letter of the law, the Biden-Harris administration rewrote the rules of the Title X program in a payout to the abortion industry that spent millions to elect them.

“We thank Senator Rubio for his leadership, all our pro-life Republican allies, and Senator Joe Manchin who continues to stand up to extremism in his party. Commonsense protections for unborn children and their mothers are not partisan and pro-abortion Democrats push abortion on demand at their political peril.”
