Let it be known that the politicians of the Democrat Party in Washington are either evil or cowardly with the exception of one.
Reports say that Democrats had brought an attempt to break the filibuster so they can bring Roe v Wade to the floor in order to codify it into law. Their end goal was to legalize abortion nationwide up until birth with what would be no limits. As you can imagine, every single Republican voted against this and they were joined by none other than West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin who had indicated that he’d vote against it earlier in the day.
This resulted in Democrats being 11 votes shy of what they needed to pass Roe into law.
BREAKING: 49 of 50 Senate Democrats just voted to legalize abortion nationwide until BIRTH with effectively no limits.
Every Republican voted against it.

Democrats knew they were going to lose this fight. It was primarily to mobilize voters as admitted by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer. The real goal was to make Republicans go on record as having voted against it.
“Republicans are going to have to go on record as to whether they want this to be the first generation of American women with less freedom than their mothers,” said Washington Democrat Senator Patty Murphy.
But instead, they gave Republicans exactly what they asked for; a way to point out exactly how radical and extreme Democrats have become. All of them, save Manchin, voting to terminate pregnancies up until the moment of birth is one of the more extreme stances one can take, and Democrats just put the vast majority of their party in that column.
They just handed Republicans another narrative victory.
“They’re not even attempting to nuance this at all,” said South Dakota Republican John Thune. “It’s all, you know, abortion up to the point of birth … which doesn’t even attempt to try and win over people who might be persuadable if they were a little less aggressive in their approach. They’ve decided they’re going full monty on this.”
To make it worse, RedState reported on Wednesday that most voters aren’t on board with the extremism Democrats have gone to when it comes to abortion. Recent polling shows that voters support restrictions on abortion at a whopping 85 percent.
We’re looking at a shockingly out-of-touch Democrat Party that has just admitted to the people that they’re as extreme as the Republicans have been claiming they are.
