The Senate has gone home without sending the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act on. You’ll remember it passed this summer, but Harry Reid held it up from going to conference. The House passed another version this week, sent it on. Last night they failed to get cloture on it (to end the debate) — a number of Dems changed their votes to make that happen including Bayh, Carper, Conrad, Dorgan, Inouye, Kohl, Nelson (FL) and Salazar.
Anyway, this was a common sense bill and it’s a shame they got nowhere on it .
