Collins Amendment to preserve federal funding of Planned Parenthood

Senate Roll Call No. 314
114th Congress, 1st Session

Rejected: 48-52 (see complete tally)
On December 3, 2015, the U.S. Senate considered what is known as the "budget reconciliation bill" (H.R. 3762), which contained a provision to block most (about $400 million) of the federal funding that goes to Planned Parenthood. Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) offered an amendment to remove the language to defund Planned Parenthood.  National Right to Life opposed the Collins Amendment, and the amendment failed by a vote of 48 to 52 -- a pro-life win.  The Collins Amendment was opposed by 51 Republican senators and one Democratic senator (pro-life).  It was supported by 45 Democratic senators and three Republicans (pro-abortion).  Senate roll call no. 314.
