UPDATE: Senate defeats Parental Notification, 57-42 (60 votes required for cloture) (Roll Call 263)
Senate to Vote Parental Notification!

Urge Senators to vote YES on the Child Custody Protection Act!

Senate Majority Leader Frist is leading the fight against Democrat obstructionism on one of the most common-sense pieces of pro-life legislation. He has scheduled a second vote on the Child Custody Protection Act (S. 403), which has already passed the Senate 65-34 in July. However, due to Democratic obstruction, the bill must now be passed again. The vote to end debate and proceed to a vote on final passage (referred to as "cloture") will occur on Friday morning.

Earlier this week House Republicans passed the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act (CIANA), H.R. 748 for the second time this Congress. House leaders were trying to outmaneuver Senate Democrats who refused to proceed to conference on the Senate version of the bill. Sponsored by Sen. John Ensign (R-NV) and Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), this legislation would make it a federal crime to transport a minor girl across state lines to avoid a parental notification law in her home state.

Although 14 Democrats supported this legislation in July, they will face heavy pressure from radical feminist groups and pro-abortion leaders in their party to change their vote. Please see the target list below for a list of Democrats who need to be encouraged to stick with their vote.

Your calls are needed to ALL Senators! Because the vote will occur on a Friday and close to the recess, some Senators might try to leave town early. We need every supporter of the CCPA to be on the Senate floor voting YES on cloture and final passage. This important bill to protect minor girls from ill-intentioned adults should go to the President's desk before the recess.

Call your Senators and urge them to vote YES on the Child Custody Protection Act! Call talk radio, send this notice to your friends and family, and urge your Senators to pass this important piece of pro-life legislation!
