Lee Abortion consent request and Blumenthal’s counteroffer

Senator Lee asked unanimous consent the HELP Committee be discharged from further consideration of S.Res.133, A resolution expressing the sense of the Senate that Congress and the States should investigate and correct abusive, unsanitary, and illegal abortion practices; and the Senate adopt the resolution and preamble, with no intervening action or debate.

 

Senator Blumenthal objected and asked that in lieu of S.Res.133, the HELP Committee be discharged from further consideration of S.Res.134, A resolution expressing the sense of the Senate that all incidents of abusive, unsanitary, or illegal health care practices should be condemned and prevented and the perpetrators should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law; the resolution be agreed to; the Blumenthal amendment to the preamble (to reflect the outcome of the court case), which is at the desk, be agreed to; and the preamble, as amended, be agreed to; with no intervening action or debate.

 

Senator Lee objected to Blumenthal’s request.
