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.”
This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.
Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do.
