Senate Republicans Block Bill to Protect IVF Nationwide

The science denying, Fundie and Theocratic Freaks in the US Senate blocked a bill that would have protected IVF nationwide. The vote was 48-47, with just two Republicans voting for it: Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine. Others in the GOP said the legislation went too far, instead signing on to a scaled-back version that Democrats said was ineffectual. The bill needed 60 votes to pass.

Chickenshit Senator Hawley even said the quiet part out loud:

President Biden offered the following statement as a reminder come Roevember:

The Right To IVF Act was brought up for a vote by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., to put the GOP in a political predicament less than five months before the 2024 elections. Democrats say the conservative-led Supreme Court’s decision in 2022 to eliminate federal abortion rights means that access to contraception and IVF are also at risk.
