Joe Biden’s hypocrisy is showing again.
The likely Democrat challenger to President Donald Trump supports abortion on demand and wants to force taxpayers to fund them. But on Thursday, he claimed to care about unborn babies’ lives when they are affected by climate change.
“Climate change is linked to increased pregnancy risks — and heartbreakingly, Black mothers are being hit the hardest,” Biden wrote on Twitter. “As President, I’ll work every day to tackle the climate crisis head-on and root out injustice. Because they are intertwined.”
He shared a New York Times article about a study linking air pollution and high temperatures to increased risks of premature, underweight and stillborn babies.
Protecting mothers and unborn babies is important, but Biden does not support the most fundamental of all protections: a right to life. Quite the opposite, he supports the so-called “right” to abort an unborn baby. And, to use Biden’s words, “heartbreakingly” black mothers and unborn babies are hit the hardest by abortions.
Since 1973 when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Roe v. Wade, approximately 20 million unborn black babies have been aborted in America.
Though abortions hurt families of every race and culture, statistics indicate that abortions disproportionately hurt the African American community. Census data indicates that African Americans make up about 13 percent of the U.S. population, but they have nearly 40 percent of all abortions. And New York City health statistics indicate that more African American babies are aborted in the city than are born each year.
Many believe the abortion industry targets minorities for abortions as well. Research by Protecting Black Life found that 79 percent of Planned Parenthood surgical abortion facilities are located within walking distance of minority neighborhoods.
If Biden wins the White House, America could see abortions skyrocket, resulting in millions more dead babies and hurting families.
He promised to end the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits taxpayer-funded abortions in Medicaid. He also said one of his first acts as president would be to restore funding to Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion chain in America.
In March, he even suggested using taxpayer funds for abortions as a solution to overpopulation in poor countries. Then, in April, he went so far as to call the killing of unborn babies an “essential medical service” during the coronavirus pandemic.
Abortions are not essential. They kill unborn babies and often harm mothers physically and psychologically. If Biden is heartbroken by the harm pollution does to unborn babies and moms, he should be heartbroken by abortions. Since 1973, abortions have killed about 62 million unborn babies and hundreds of mothers and harmed many, many more.
