Joe Manchin refuses to vote to codify eggs with the Women’s Health Protection Act

Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) said he will vote against the women’s health protection law because he thinks it extends abortion.

Manchin told reporters, “They are trying to make people believe that this is the same thing as coding roe deer v. veal. And I want you to know it’s not. This is not the same. Abortion is rampant “,

Pro-choice Republican Senators Collins and Murkowski will also vote no today because they are working on their own bill to protect access to abortion. Given Manchin’s comments, he is likely to support the Collins / Murkowski legislation.

Voters must end the Manchin presidency in November

Democrats have a chance to overturn a Senate seat in Pennsylvania. If the Democrats can keep Rev. Warnock’s seat in Georgia and get John Fetterman elected in Pennsylvania, the Manchin presidency will end.

Joe Manchin alone has done more to derail the Democratic agenda than any other senator.

Democrats need Manchin to keep a majority in the Senate right now, but if they manage to overturn one or two Senate seats in November, the Manchin presidency will be over. Democrats in the Senate would then be able to change the filibuster, and if the The House remains in Democratic hands, they can implement the agenda that most Americans support.
