Federal Government activity from January 1 to March 31, 2020

Ana Brennan, J.D.

 

As we all know, so far, the CORNA-19 virus has dominated both our personal lives as well as our government's priorities in 2020. With that said, there was some minor pro-life activity in Congress.

February 2020

In the Senate, both the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, failed to garner the 60 votes need to advance. 

The bills failed: 56-41 and 53-44 respectively.
