U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines, founder and chair of the Senate Pro-Life Caucus, today gave remarks on the floor of the United States Senate slamming the Democrats’ radical “Abortion on Demand Until Birth Act,” which goes further than any pro-abortion law in the history of Congress. Daines also hosted a press conference with his Senate Republican colleagues to denounce the Democrats’ radical bill. Senate Republicans defeated the bill by a vote of 46-48.

Excerpts from Daines’ remarks as prepared for delivery:

“In a nutshell, this radical bill would make the United States of America one of the most dangerous places in the world to be an unborn child…

“Instead, the “Abortion on Demand Until Birth Act” ignores the science entirely—and would erase unborn children and even the most modest protections for their right to life from the laws of every state.
“It’s completely indefensible, extreme, and an egregious violation of the most fundamental of human rights: the right to life…”
