Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act: Sense of the Senate

Senate Roll Call No. 64
113rd Congress, 1st Session

Rejected: 48-51 (see complete tally)
On March 22, 2013, during consideration of a budget resolution (S. Con. Res. 8), Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fl.) offered an amendment expressing the "sense of the Senate" that Congress should enact the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act (CIANA), S. 369, which is a bill sponsored by Sen. Rubio and strongly supported by National Right to Life.  The CIANA would require any abortionist to notify the parent of a non-resident minor, with certain exceptions, and would place restrictions on non-parents transporting minors across state lines to obtain abortions.  Technically, this was a vote on a motion to make the amendment in order, but in essence, the roll call demonstrated where senators stand on the CIANA.  The Rubio motion failed, 48-51.  Forty-three (43) Republicans and five Democrats voted in favor of the CIANA, while two Republicans and 49 Democrats voted against it.  Roll call no. 64.
