Senate Democrats (Including Allegedly "Pro Life" Bob Casey) Vote to Rescind Mexico City Policy

Rick Garnett reports over at Mirror of Justice:
... Here is the roll-call vote. Only one Democrat -- Ben Nelson, not Robert Casey -- voted to preserve the policy. Also, the Senate rejected the Brownback Amendment, which would have prohibited contributions to organizations that promote and / or perform abortions as a method of family planning. Two Democrats -- Ben Nelson and Robert Casey -- voted in support of the Amendment. The Senate agreed, however -- just barely (!!) -- to another Brownback Amendment, which denies federal money to groups that "support coercive abortion." Only two Democrats -- Ben Nelson and Robert Casey -- supported the Amendment.
(emphasis added)

UPDATE (11 September 2007)
Professor Garnett has now cross-posted this over at Vox Nova. The debate is liable to get interesting.
