The senator from West Virginia is concerned that two justices he supported helped eliminate the right to abortion.

Manchin voted to confirm Neil Gorsuch and the other judge. The justices may have lied during their confirmation hearings according to Manchin.

The stability of the ruling has provided for two generations of Americans and I am alarmed that they chose to reject it.

The stability of the legal system is ensured by the importance of precedents, according to Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch.

The determinacy of the law is increased when a case is settled. There was a time when the issue was a hot one.

The Supreme Court said in Friday's decision that "far from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, they have enflamed debate and deepened division."

Supermajorities of American voters for decades have said that abortion should be legal in all or part of the country. As a result of the court's decision, abortion will be illegal in as many as 26 states.

During his confirmation hearing, the man described the law assettled.

One of the important things to remember about the case is that it has been affirmed many times over the course of 45 years. The issue is important to me. People attach a lot of importance to the decisions of the Supreme Court.

Several Democrats noted during the confirmation hearings that Donald Trump promised to appoint justices who would overturn the abortion law.

During a presidential debate, Trump said he would put another two or three justices on if he were elected. I think that will happen because I put pro-life justices on the court. I will tell you this. The states will make a determination after it returns to the states.

Manchin expressed his disappointment in the decision.

Manchin said that it had been the law of the land for almost 50 years. I am pro-life because I was raised pro-life as a catholic. My definition of pro-life may not be the same as someone else's.

Manchin supports codifying the right to an abortion, but he doesn't support the procedural changes that would make it viable in the Senate.
