On Friday, West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin (D) vetoed a measure that would protect unborn children from abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy. The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act was passed with overwhelming bipartisan support by the Democrat-led state legislature.
As Breitbart News reported on March 10, the West Virginia state Senate passed the measure, 29-5, with the support of 19 Democrats. The bill also passed in the state House by a vote of 79-17 with the support of 33 Democrats.
The legislation, which would protect unborn children beginning at 20 weeks of pregnancy, is based on scientific evidence that unborn babies are capable of feeling pain by 20 weeks of life.
Similar laws have been passed in 13 states, and a federal version has been approved by the U.S. House of Representatives and has more than 40 cosponsors in the U.S. Senate.
In a press statement regarding his veto of the measure, Tomblin, who has claimed to be pro-life, ironically said, I believe there is no greater gift of love than the gift of life. I have stated this time and again throughout my career and it is reflected in my legislative voting record.

At root, he’s a Satancrat. What more can you expect?
Useless turd. What’s the point of being a “Pro-Life Democrat” if you’re going to vote Pro-Death.
Only Republicans are supposed to cave, you see.
Exactly. Bob Casey, Jr., is another example.
Democrats and abortion go hand in hand with each other. That party is absolutely obsessed with wiping out babies.
There is no such thing as a pro-life Democrat in office, just an opportunitic liar waiting to be purchased. And the denizens of Appalachia like to be lied to.
