West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin insists he’s a pro-life Democrat. But when is a pro-life Democrat not really a pro-life Democrat? When it’s Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia — who was caught posing for a picture with a group of Planned Parenthood abortion activists.
This is the second time Manchin has been on camera posing with abortion supporters. Last year, Manchin was caught holding a sign stating “I Stand With Planned Parenthood” along with an abortion activist.
Here’s more details on the new photo that surfaced today, depicting Manchin, who has always claimed he’s a pro-life Democrat despite supporting the Planned Parenthood abortion company, posting with the abortion activists in 2015:
Mountaineer Journal has obtained a photo of Sen. Joe Manchin, posing with a group of Planned Parenthood activists.
The photo was taken on July 10, 2015, when Planned Parenthood’s West Virginia field organizer and pro-choice students from West Virginia University delivered approximately 680 petitions to Sen. Manchin’s office.
“As part of the Planned Parenthood Generation Action lobby day, our West Virginia field organizer and students from West Virginia University delivered over 680 petitions to Senator Joe Manchin III’s office urging him to protect women’s health in West Virginia,” Planned Parenthood South Atlantic posted on Facebook.
Senator Manchin has voted at odds with his purported pro-life views. He recently voted against a measure that would overturn President Barack Obama’s parting gift to Planned Parenthood that prevented States from defunding the abortion company.
And he refuses to support Amendment 1, which would end taxpayer funding of abortions in West Virginia.
Although the senator claims to be pro-life, his voting record leaves much to be desired. According to National Right to Life, Manchin has just a 33% pro-life voting record this session.
