Manchin Will Vote Against Democrat Bill Codifying Roe v. Wade
Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W. Va.) will vote against his party’s bill to codify Roe v. Wade, the West Virginia Democrat told reporters hours ahead of an expected vote on the measure.
According to a draft opinion leaked by Politico on May 2, which Chief Justice John Roberts has since indicated is real, SCOTUS may be poised to overturn Roe v. Wade.
“We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the majority opinion of the court. “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”
The possible repeal of the seminal 1973 abortion case, which has defined federal law toward abortion for the past half-century, sent pro-abortion advocates into a flurry of activity online and on Capitol Hill.
