Monday, Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., joined Senate Republicans in defeating a bill that would have legalized abortions up to full term nationwide.

The Senate failed to advance the Women’s Health Protection Act on Monday night — leaving Democratic advocates and lawmakers wondering what else if anything, the party can do to protect abortion rights as they come under attack from federal courts and Republican-led states.

According to Life News, senators voted 48-46 against cloture, which would have brought an end to the debate and allowed a vote on the Women’s Health Protection Act. The Hill noted that the bill, which passed the House last year, would have codified a right to an abortion and combatted pro-life state laws. The bill’s defeat comes as the Supreme Court weighs a case that could potentially curb Roe vs. Wade.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., expressed that “sadly it looks like the Supreme Court will limit abortion rights in the coming months. That’s why the bill is essential.”

Sam Runyon, a spokesperson for Manchin, stated that “Senator Manchin’s position has not changed” after being asked about Manchin’s “no” vote. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., accused Democrats of attempting to appease their leftist base by supporting a “radical” policy, saying that “yet again our colleagues wish to demonstrate that the radical left fringe runs today’s Democratic Party.”

Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Denise Burke dubbed the bill “grossly misnamed,” arguing that, “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 stated that the bill would have nullified pro-life state laws, insisting that “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.”
