Hillary Clinton was never able to get over losing to President Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, and now she has pinned her hopes on defeating trump with pro-abortion Joe Biden.
The two have strongly supported each other and Biden criss-crossed the nation on Hillary’s behalf in 2016.
“Hillary is a really bright competent person—would’ve been a good president. But think about this: Do you know the detail of any of her plans? My guess is you’re an informed voter and you probably don’t unless you went online,” Biden said in December. “I did 84 major events for Hillary Clinton all over the country, nobody campaigned for her more than I did.”
Hillary Clinton is an ardent abortion activist. She has always been pushing abortions up to birth and forcing Americans to pay for killing babies. She even attended a Planned Parenthood rally, declaring she would stand alongside the nation’s biggest abortion company.
Clinton campaigned on supporting third-trimester abortions and forcing taxpayers to fund them. And she is such a strong abortion activist, she recently won an award for her abortion advocacy. In between criticisms of President Donald Trump, leaders of the radical pro-abortion group called Clinton “our president” and touted her pro-abortion record.
“Women’s rights are human rights, and for 50 years NARAL has taken on the toughest fights to protect our most fundamental freedoms. Happy anniversary. Let’s keep going,” Clinton wrote on Twitter after accepting the award.
During her acceptance speech, Clinton spent a lot of time criticizing Trump, who has taken strong steps to protect human rights for both the born and unborn. Among his many actions, the president cut taxpayer funding to abortion providers, urged countries to stand together against the United Nation’s abortion agenda, and defended the conscience protection rights of pro-life medical workers.
Biden is equally pro-abortion.
Biden will have a hard time winning over the majority of Americans who are pro-life, as he recently said he would force Americans to fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business on day 1.
It’s no surprise that Biden would force Americans to fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business, since he has an extensive record supporting abortions up to birth.
When it comes to abortion and appointing federal judges who have the power to determine the direction of abortion legislation, Biden made it clear during a Democrat debate he would not compromise as president.
“It’s a woman’s right to do that. Period,” Biden said, “And if you call that a litmus test, it’s a litmus test.”
Biden went further. He said if the Supreme Court were to overturn Roe v. Wade, he would push for a national law allowing abortions up to birth.
“If they ruled it to be unconstitutional, I will send to the United States Congress, and it will pass I believe, a bill that legislates Roe v. Wade adjusted by Casey,” Biden said.
Biden also touted his role in rejecting former President Ronald Reagan’s Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork when he was in the Senate, as Bork had said he favored overturning the landmark decision that has resulted in killing 61 million babies in abortions.
Biden once attempted to appear a a moderate on abortion but that has changed.
After Biden came out supporting overturning the Hyde Amendment and forcing Americans to fund abortions, pro-life Americans made it clear they opposed his position supporting taxpayer-funded abortions up to birth. Biden then flip-flopped and said he would not support efforts to overturn the Hyde Amendment, which protects Americans from funding most abortions.
But after an outcry from abortion advocates when he flip-flopped, Biden then flip-flopped again last June and now says he will support forcing Americans to fund abortions up to birth with our taxpayer dollars.
Biden said he supported forcing Americans to pay for abortions. “It can’t stay,” Biden said of the Hyde amendment during an exchange with an ACLU activist earlier this month. The video of the exchange was posted by the ACLU on Twitter on May 8th
Here’s the transcript of that exchange between Biden and an ACLU activist [emphasis added]:
ACLU Activist: I’m an ACLU Rights For All voter, and I have one quick question for you. And that is: Will you commit to abolishing the Hyde amendment, which hurts poor women and—
Biden: Yes…. Yes. And by the way, ACLU member, I have a near-perfect voting record my entire career.
ACLU: I heard you did. But I’m glad you just said you would commit to abolishing the Hyde Amendment.
Biden: Right now it has to be… It can’t stay.
Biden clearly answered “yes” and “it can’t stay” when asked if he’d “commit to abolishing the Hyde amendment.”
Naturally, pro-life organizations called Biden out for his support for taxpayer-funded abortion on demand and for changing his position repeatedly.
SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser told LifeNews: “Joe Biden’s support for taxpayer funding of abortion after decades of opposition is just the latest example of Democratic extremism on abortion. Long gone are the days of ‘safe, legal, and rare.’”
Polling data is clear that Americans oppose abortion funding.
A January poll conducted by Marist University finds an overwhelming majority of Americans support restrictions on abortion and would like Roe v. Wade reinterpreted to allow restrictions on abortions. It also found that three-quarters (75 percent) of Americans oppose taxpayer funding of abortion abroad, fewer than two in 10 (19 percent) support such funding. Opposition to this funding includes most Republicans (94 percent) and independents (80 percent) and a majority of Democrats (56 percent).
By a double-digit margin, a majority of all Americans oppose any taxpayer funding of abortion (54 percent to 39 percent).
Despite the data, Biden is still an ardent abortion supporter.
Biden has a strong pro-abortion voting record that goes back for many years, and he supported President Barack Obama’s leadership as the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history. What’s more, pro-abortion movement leaders say they “trust” Biden to protect abortion on demand. As the vice president, he supported the administration’s pro-abortion policies, including Obamacare, which forced religious employers to pay for drugs that may cause abortions.
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.
Kate Michelman, a former leader of NARAL, is not worried.
“Joe Biden continued his evolution on the issue under Obama. He got there,” she told the newspaper. “I can’t say for absolute, 100 percent, but I would trust him as president to protect and defend a women’s right to choose.”
To show how far Biden has come toward the pro-abortion view, he once likened an abortion to an operation — as if taking the life of a baby before birth is somehow beneficial in the same manner as a patient’s operation.
Biden said: “Maybe where Romney is most sketchy is on women’s rights. I got a daughter and lost a daughter. I’ve got four granddaughters and Barack has two daughters. And this is to our core. Our daughters and our granddaughters are entitled to every single solitary operation, every single solitary opportunity!”
