W.Va. Gov. Tomblin: Another ‘Pro-Life’ Dem Bites the Dust

by Maggie Gallagher

Earlier this month, West Virginia became the first Democrat-controlled legislature to pass a ban on abortion after 20 weeks except to save the physical health or life of the mother.

Governor Tomblin quietly vetoed the bill Friday, claiming that it was unconstitutional and that “all patients, particularly expectant mothers, require the best, most unfettered medical judgment and advice from their physicians regarding treatment options.”

Destroying your own child five months into your pregnancy is now a “treatment option?” And he still claims to be pro-life? 

The redefinition of words knows no natural end if it helps a politician stay in power.

Senator Joe Manchin is now the last standing prominent West Virginia “pro-life” Democrat. Will he co-sponsor the 20 week ban in the Senate?
