Senate Blocks Bill on Abortions

WASHINGTON - Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement today after he voted to block legislation that would have prohibited certain abortions:  

“Republicans should stop politicizing the right of women in this country to control their own bodies. The decision to end a pregnancy should be made in consultation with a doctor without interference or judgement from politicians.”
