It appears that pro-abortion groups only “believe women” who accuse powerful men of sexual assault when it is politically convenient.
Two years ago, Planned Parenthood, NARAL, Emily’s List and other prominent pro-abortion groups viciously slammed U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh after sexual misconduct allegations surfaced against him. The groups insisted that the public believe his accusers without question, even though evidence was slim and no charges ever were filed, and they tried to derail his confirmation.
Now, the presumptive Democrat presidential candidate, Joe Biden, is facing similar sexual assault allegations, and the exact same pro-abortion groups are silent.
Hanna Trudo, a journalist with the left-leaning Daily Beast, said they recently contacted 10 “top women’s groups” to ask about the accusations against Biden, a pro-abortion Democrat.
“None provided a comment,” Trudo wrote Wednesday on Twitter, naming Planned Parenthood, NARAL, Emily’s List and National Organization for Women (NOW) among those they contacted.
“One prominent women’s political group cited a scheduling conflict and asked to be kept ‘in mind for other opportunities!’ When pressed if the following day would work better, an associate said it would not, citing another scheduling conflict,” Trudo continued.
Tara Reade accused Biden of sexually assaulting her in 1993 while she was working for him. Recently, one of Reade’s former neighbors confirmed her story. However, Biden’s campaign denied the allegations, saying it “absolutely did not happen.”
Whether the allegations are true or false, powerful pro-abortion groups are treating them very differently now that they involve a politician within their own camp. Biden has promised to support abortion on demand and force taxpayers to fund them. He recently described the killing of unborn babies in abortions as “essential health care.”
It’s almost certain that Planned Parenthood, NARAL, Emily’s List and others plan to dump tens of millions of dollars into backing Biden and defeating President Donald Trump.
And it’s becoming increasingly clear that their bordering-on-slanderous campaigns against Kavanaugh, a conservative, had nothing to do with supporting women who have been sexually assaulted and everything to do with advancing their pro-abortion agenda.

Writer Stephen L. Miller highlighted the pro-abortion groups’ hypocrisy by referencing their comments about Kavanaugh and his accusers in 2018:

Fellow Daily Beast writer Scott Bixby also pointed out how prominent women’s groups treated the sexual misconduct allegations against former president Bill Clinton, another pro-abortion Democrat.
“During the first days of #MeToo, many prominent feminists and women’s groups expressed regret for staying silent about allegations of misconduct against Bill Clinton,” Bixby wrote. “Those same figures and groups are now staying very quiet [about Reade].”
Few mainstream news outlets have covered Reade’s allegations either, according to the Media Research Center.
Reade recently told the Daily Caller that her sexual assault accusation has become a “partisan tool,” saying that Republicans have weaponized her and Democrats have both ignored and discredited her.
“I’m sorry that I’m politically inconvenient, but my perpetrator was Joe Biden,” she told the Daily Caller. “And people need to deal with it.”
