Nov 3 2019- in Senate- If passed, it would have increased funding for pro-abortion organizations, such as the U.N. Population Fund, which supports China’s authoritarian policies of forced abortions and sterilizations. Furthermore, adding this poison pill amendment to the funding bill was a clear violation of the budget agreement reached between Republicans and Democrats in August.  

The Senate was set to vote on Thursday for H.R. 2740, an appropriations bill containing the problematic Shaheen amendment.
