Is this 'pro-life' senator just toying with life issue?

Manchin holding signsHe has long been considered one of the pro-life Democrats in Washington but not everyone believes that about Sen. Joe Manchin (D-West Virginia). 

Manchin is facing a tough re-election in a state that Donald Trump won by a whopping 67-26 percent in 2016. But it appears that Manchin may squeak out a victory against challenger Patrick Morrisey. Manchin leads in polls by an average of five points.

Steven Ertelt, editor of Life News, says Manchin has called himself "pro-life" for many years but he has posed for photos with Planned Parenthood supporters.

One of those photographs is from last year but Ertelt says a new picture surfaced last week, too.

"Planned Parenthood does more abortions and kills more unborn children than anybody, so why would you endorse that?" Ertelt asks. "[Manchin] wouldn't stand up and pose for a photograph with somebody endorsing sex trafficking, or endorsing prostitution or rape, or something like that, but he's perfectly content with standing and smiling with Planned Parenthood abortion advocates."

OneNewsNow has contacted Manchin's office and the Manchin campaign seeking comment but has not received a response.
