BREAKING: Joe Manchin Decides The Fate Of Federal Abortion Bill


- Advertisment -

After a draft opinion was leaked from the Supreme Court that would overturn Roe v. Wade, Democrats drafted a bill that would codify abortion ‘rights’ in to law.

The bill would prevent states from limiting access to or regulating abortion for up to 20 weeks of pregnancy.  It is more radical than most states’ current abortion laws.

All Republican Senators have come out against the bill, including Senators Lisa Murkowski (R-Ak.) and Susan Collins (R-Me.), who is seen as more pro-choice than their other Republican colleagues.

Democrats could still pass the bill with a tiebreaker from Vice President Kamala Harris, but they would have to overcome a Republican filibuster that will likely happen.

Today, Democratic Senator Joe Manchin (D-Wv.) said that he would vote for the Democrat’s abortion bill or vote for cloture to end a Republican filibuster, effectively dooming the abortion bill to failure.

“Joe Manchin has essentially killed Democrats’ efforts to codify Roe v. Wade into federal law as his party prepares to bring a vote on abortion legislation Wednesday afternoon.

‘We’re going to be voting on a piece of legislation, which I will not vote for today.,’ Manchin told reporters on Capitol Hill on Wednesday.

‘But I would vote for a Roe v. Wade codification if it was today – I was hopeful for that,’ the West Virginia Democrat assured. ‘But I found out yesterday in caucus that wasn’t going to be and you probably heard of that by now.’

In what will be a show-vote, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer will attempt to file cloture to stop Republicans filibustering the Women’s Health Protection Act, which was introduced by Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut.

Schumer knows he doesn’t have the votes needed to make the landmark abortion case federal law but says he wants to put anti-abortion lawmakers on the record.”
