House Bill 364 was passed entirely by male senators as their six female colleagues, Democrats Luz Escamilla, Jani Iwamoto, Karen Mayne and Kathleen Riebe and Republicans Deirdre Henderson and Ann Millner walked out on the vote.

9. Does anyone report the voting on the bill?

Did male Democrats in the Utah House and Senate support this bill? We know the GOP party line is to humiliate and dominate women.

The Newsweek article did not report the vote count, nor did it make clear if all of the males in both houses voted in favor or not. There was no mention of any males or Democrats having spoken against the bill, either.
