Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi formally endorsed Joe Biden for president Monday, claiming the former pro-abortion vice president will fight “for our children’s future.”
Both Pelosi and Biden are radical pro-abortion politicians who support abortions up to birth and want to force taxpayers to pay for them. Biden is the presumptive Democratic nominee after all of his major competitors dropped out of the race.
According to Variety, Pelosi released a 3-minute video explaining her endorsement and urging voters to give Democrats a sweeping victory in November.
“Elections are about the future. Now more than ever we need a forward-looking, battle-tested leader who will fight for the people,” Pelosi said. She described Biden as “a leader who is the personification of hope and courage, values, authenticity and integrity.”
She praised him for helping to pass Obamacare when he served as vice president and advocating for gun restrictions in the wake of mass shootings, according to the report.
“Joe Biden has fought for our health care, for our families and for our children’s future,” Pelosi continued. “To his work, Joe brings values and integrity. He is a voice of reason and resilience who will fight for the people. Today, I am proud to endorse him for president of the United States.”
But Biden does not have all children’s futures at heart, nor does Pelosi. Both claim to be Catholics and claim to fight for the most vulnerable in society, but they both support the mass destruction of unborn babies in abortions.
Though Biden once was more moderate, his stance on abortion has shifted far left in recent years. Last year, he gave up his long-held position supporting the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits taxpayer-funded abortions through Medicare.

The Democrat presidential candidate now supports forcing taxpayers to pay for elective abortions. In late February at a town hall in South Carolina, Biden promised that one of his first acts as president would be to restore funding to Planned Parenthood, the billion-dollar abortion chain.
Biden has a strong pro-abortion voting record that goes back for many years. He supported President Barack Obama’s leadership as the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history. As the vice president, he supported the administration’s pro-abortion policies, including Obamacare, which forced religious employers to pay for contraception that may cause abortions.
Biden recently said he would be committed to “the constitutional right to an abortion” and “reverse the Trump administration and states’ all-out assault on women’s right to choose.” He also promised to “work to codify Roe v. Wade.” The infamous U.S. Supreme Court decision made the United States one of only seven countries in the world that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
That’s not where most Americans stand. Polls consistently show that most support strong limits on abortion, especially in the third trimester when babies are viable outside the womb. A recent Gallup poll found that 60 percent of Americans want abortion legal “only in a few circumstances” (39 percent) or “illegal in all circumstances” (21 percent).
Biden’s extremes do not stop there. His health care plan would expand abortions as well. The plan would codify Roe v. Wade into federal law, prohibiting states from passing even moderate restrictions that protect unborn babies from late-term abortions. It also would force insurance companies to cover abortions as “essential” health care under Obamacare.
What’s more, pro-abortion movement leaders say they “trust” Biden to protect abortion on demand.
From 2001 to 2008, Biden’s voting record on pro-life issues was close to zero, according to the National Right to Life Committee. In 2005, for example, he voted against the Mexico City Policy, which prohibits funding to overseas groups that promote and/or perform abortions. He also voted repeatedly to require that military service members’ abortions be covered by taxpayer dollars.
