Conscience Protection Narrowly Defeated

http://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=112&session=2&vote=00024

The bill "To amend the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to protect rights of conscience with regard to requirements for coverage of specific items and services" was tabled by the Senate.  The vote was largely along party lines.  The only democrats to vote against tabling the bill were Nelson (NE), Casey (PA), and Manchin (WV) while RINO Olympia Snowe, independent Joe Lieberman and Socialist Bernie Sanders also voted in favor of tabling the bill.  Republican Mark Kirk of Illinois did not vote on it.  The final tally was 51-48.

This is why we need the Ohio Personhood Amendment.  The federal government is not going to do what is right.  Sign up for emails, join their facebook group, and read their website to get information on how Ohioans can help to get the Personhood Amendment on the ballot.
