West Virginia’s Senator Joe Manchin has long claimed to be pro-life. What is his voting record in the 115th Congress? A dismal 33%.

Sen. Manchin consistently votes to allow hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider that performs 900 abortions every single day.

Manchin’s response to this? “Not one dime of that money goes for abortion.”

We don’t care Senator.

Money is fungible. Planned Parenthood receives more than a million dollars a day in federal dollars. They can use that money to build more buildings, hire more staff and do more advertising. As a result, more little girls walk through their doors seeking abortions.

By voting against defunding Planned Parenthood, Sen. Manchin is keeping money from actual health care providers who will offer comprehensive health care for more women and girls, closer to home.
