(Washington, D.C.) -- U.S. Senator Ron Wyden is responding to a failed vote in the U.S. Senate to codify Roe v. Wade. The measure failed yesterday on a 49 to 51 vote. The Oregon Democrat says the vote "was a gut punch to anyone who believes in liberty, privacy rights and equal rights, but now the American people know on which side every Senator stands." Oregon Democratic Senator Jeff Merkley said, "Oregonians, and the American people, don't want MAGA politicians telling survivors of rape and incest that they must stay pregnant." Senator Joe Manchin was the only Democratic Senator who voted against the bill.
