President Joe Biden is of the Catholic faith, after JFK he is the only other Catholic to hold that position. At odds with his faith is his support of abortions, which clashed with the official teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.
Catholic activist Marjorie Dannenfelser said that Biden is a concern regarding his support of abortions.
“It’s a negative example of a deep and important moral issue that is being debated in this country,” she said, reported NPR.
Dannenfelser is president of the Susan B. Anthony List, a group that looks to elect anti-abortion women into politics, and to advocate for laws limiting abortion.
“The church itself has not changed in its view, ever, on the dignity of human life and the need for its protection,” Dannenfelser said. “[Biden] can’t bring the Catholic Church along with him because of his political needs.”
Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris intend to immediately begin dismantling President Trump’s pro-life executive actions and increasing the flow of tax dollars to the abortion industry.
President Trump and Vice President Pence, along with key appointees like Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, led the most effective pro-life administration in history in terms of policy achievements.
Countless lives have been saved worldwide by their policy of halting the forced taxpayer funding that was previously in place under the Obama administration.
Under the Trump-Pence administration, the distribution of dangerous abortion drugs by mail during the pandemic was halted after the request was granted earlier this month by the Supreme Court.
A previous activist judge’s injunction was canceled after a 6-3 decision. This is a promising sign for future pro-life cases at the court.
The court’s new order allows the FDA to once again enforce the regulations requiring in-person visits, although its willingness to do so could change now the administration of Biden is now in charge.
Abortion rights advocates have been on the defensive at the federal and state levels during President Trump’s four years in office, and Planned Parenthood’s advocacy arm endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden in his race to defeat President Trump.
“This is literally a life and death election,” Alexis McGill Johnson, acting president of Planned Parenthood, told NPR ahead of the announcement last June. “We felt like we can’t endure another four years of Trump; we have to do everything we can to get him out of office.”
In response, Jeanne Mancini, president of the anti-abortion rights group March For Life, said in a statement, “It is offensive to hear our nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, an organization that claims the lives of 345,672 American babies annually (a third of all of the abortions in this country each year), call the 2020 cycle a ‘life and death’ election. Those who really care about protecting life realize that the election of Planned Parenthood-endorsed candidate, Joe Biden, will result in a major increase of tax dollars going to the billion-dollar organization, including direct payment for abortions, among other deadly consequences.”
