Pro-life activists are expressing disappointment and frustration at the United States Senate's failure to pass a bill that would ban most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

Known as the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, the bill failed to get the necessary 60 votes on Monday to pass a motion to proceed, with the final tally being 51-46.
