Although several senate democrat leaders remain tight-lipped, Bill McKenna, President Pro Tem, says he will stay consistent with his original vote and support the over-ride.

McKenna's vote will be one of 23 necessary to pass the over-ride.

Meanwhile, Senate Democrat Leader, Ed Quick, who claims he has not yet decided his vote, says predicting the outcome is impossible.

A pro-life rally scheduled before the session begins will try to pursuad the undecided.
