Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) has crossed the aisle and joined Senate Republicans to sink a bill that would have legalized abortions up to birth nationwide.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) fired back at Manchin over the move, saying: “Sadly, it looks like the Supreme Court will limit abortion rights on the coming months.
“That’s why the bill is essential.”
GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) said: “I have long supported a woman’s right to choose, but my position is not without limits, and this partisan Women’s Health Protection Act simply goes too far.
“It would broadly supersede state laws and infringe on Americans’ religious freedoms.
“The fact that my choice is between this bill, or nothing at all, shows how insincere Majority Leader Schumer is about protecting women’s rights.
“Failing to conduct any outreach and reducing this important issue to nothing more than a designed-to-fail show vote is a disservice to women across America.”

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said: “Yet again our colleagues wish to demonstrate that the radical left fringe runs today’s Democratic Party.”
Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Denise Burke said: “Despite contending to be about women’s health, the so-called Women’s Health Protection Act would have endangered women and unborn babies by prohibiting most — if not all — of the reasonable state regulations on abortion currently in place.
“This legislation was just the latest example of the extreme lengths to which congressional Democrats will go to cater to abortionists.
“Every innocent human life is valuable, precious, and worthy of protection.
“We commend the members of the Senate who took a stand for true women’s healthcare and the protection of innocent life by voting against this destructive legislation.”
Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said:
“This radical ‘Abortion Until Birth Act’ would block popular pro-life laws around the country, including limits on late-term abortions when unborn babies feel pain, and effectively enshrine an unlimited abortion ‘right’ in federal law.
“Pro-abortion Democrats are desperate to stop the pro-life momentum demonstrated by pro-life laws advancing in state legislatures nationwide.”
46-48: The Senate vote to invoke cloture on Roe v Wade codification fails. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) only Dem to vote no.
As @sahilkapur noted, “It leaves Congress with no viable path to keeping abortion legal nationally if SCOTUS guts Roe.” pic.twitter.com/jDbMRPbfjn
