Senate fails to pass bill to protect abortion rights

The US Senate failed to pass a bill that could have made Roe vs Wade the ideal law for abortion rights.

The vote was expected to fail, but Democrats argued it was a way to show every senator’s position on abortion.

The recent Supreme Court draft leak is hinting at a clear overturn of the Roe vs Wade landmark decision.

The Senate voted 49-51, far short of the 60 votes needed to advance the bill.

Republicans decried the bill as a radical step that would go much further than what Roe vs Wade guarantees.

However, polls show a majority of the public favors Roe vs Wade.
