On Monday, a majority of Senate Democrats, joined by two Republicans, voted to block a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks. The bill needed 60 votes to proceed, but only attained a count of 51-46.
According to The Daily Wire, there were at least a few Democrats who were far from disappointed at the final vote tally on the proposed 20-weeks abortion ban. And they displayed their pleasure with the result in a rather unseemly fashion on the Senate floor as the last votes were still coming in.
