Washington D.C., Jan 25, 2021 / 04:30 pm (CNA).- As Democrats last week took effective control of the Senate, pro-life leaders turned their attention to the record of one senator who could cast pivotal votes in the next two years.

However, when the process of reconciliation is invoked—a Senate procedure by which only 50 votes are needed to pass certain budget-related measures—every vote will count. And the name of Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) is being discussed by pro-life groups as a possible obstacle to Democrats passing pro-abortion items.
