America’s largest abortion company has endorsed abortion advocate Joe Biden for President. The Planned Parenthood abortion chain, which is responsible for killing hundreds of thousands of babies in abortion, says it supports Biden and will spend millions of dollars support him over pro-life President Donald Trump.
“This is literally a life and death election,” Alexis McGill Johnson, acting president of Planned Parenthood, told NPR about her group’s decision.
She’s right, but for the wrong reasons. For the 345,672 unborn babies Planned Parenthood killed in 2019 and the 60 million unborn children killed under Roe v. Wade since 1973, it is a life or death decision indeed.
Johnson said the abortion giant’s main motivation for the election season is getting rid of Trump. Planned Parenthood has endorsed the Democratic presidential candidate in every election cycle since 2004.
“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,”she said.
“I think that’s where most Americans are,” she said. “We need to be able to kind of move past this very challenging, divisive, polarized era and move into a place where we can actually rebuild our lives after this disaster.”
Trump has the support of pro-life groups, which represent the majority of Americans on abortion.
Johnson said Biden “will deliver” on promoting unlimited abortions as president. And that is correct.
Biden thinks that killing babies in abortions is a right and that abortions should be funded in every state with federal taxpayer dollars. Although he euphemistically calls abortion health care, at the time he endorsed forcing taxpayer to fund abortions last year, Biden said: “If I believe health care is a right, as I do, I can no longer support an amendment that makes that right dependent on someone’s ZIP code.”
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!”
Though Biden support forcing Americans to pay for abortions, polling data is clear that Americans oppose abortion funding.
A January 2019 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).
