Liberals Lose Their Minds, Female Lawmakers March and Chant After Joe Manchin Sinks Abortion Bill

Verified liberal accounts on social media were melting down and female lawmakers broke into a chant of “my body, my decision” following the sinking of a Democrat bill to expand abortion by Democrat Senator Joe Manchin.

Manchin announced earlier in the day Wednesday that he would not support the legislation, having voted against it already in February.

He later followed through in helping to block the effort formally.

Manchin blasted the bill, saying it was a misnomer to portray it as Democrats have as a codification of Roe v. Wade.

“Make no mistake, it is not Roe v. Wade codification. It’s an expansion,” he explained to reporters. “It wipes 500 state laws off the books — it expands abortion.”

Manchin added, “We should not be dividing this country further than we’re already divided.”

Leftists Outraged Over Joe Manchin’s Abortion Bill Vote

The attempt to ‘codify’ Roe v. Wade would have needed 60 votes to pass – which it had no chance of doing. In fact, it failed to garner a simple majority, being voted down 49-51.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer knew the bill had no shot but stated his intentions to get Republicans on the record as opposing abortion rights.

Along with Manchin, pro-choice and moderate Republican Senators Susan Collins (ME) and Lisa Murkowski (AK) voted against the legislation.

The ire from the left was squarely on Manchin, however, after he once again proved a voice of reason in a sea of liberal reactionary outrage.

Author and political analyst Jared Yates Sexton said Joe Manchin’s vote against the radical abortion bill wasn’t simply about his “cruelty” and “disregard of … lives,” it’s that people with differing viewpoints are even allowed in the Democrat Party at all.

Imagine a person so far adrift that they think being opposed to the expansion of abortion makes you someone who ‘disregards lives.’

‘How dare you not get on board with killing babies! That’s so cruel!’

Activist and ‘pro-choice pastor,’ John Pavlovitz, called Manchin a “national tragedy.”

Democratic strategist Adam Parkhomenko claimed Manchin was little more than a “corrupt Republican scumbag.”

Talk show host and CNN contributor Andy Cohen called the Democrat Senator from West Virginia an acronym for “piece of s***.”

Democrat Women Stage A March and Chant ‘My Body, My Decision’

Perhaps the most entertaining display of outrage towards Joe Manchin’s vote on the abortion bill was provided by female Democrat lawmakers – which included members of the House Progressive Caucus – parading through the chamber and chanting “my body, my decision.”

Geez, they can’t even get that right.

The chant has been “my body, my choice” for decades now. If you start wantonly adding syllables to simplistic phrases like that, liberals are going to get lost trying to keep up.

While Schumer is seeking to get Republicans on record, this vote gets Democrats on record as supporting a bill that, as Manchin says, expands abortion.

This legislation that was knocked down allows abortions up until birth and would force Christian doctors to perform abortions, even if they object on moral or religious grounds.
