Electing Joe Biden Would Keep Abortions Legal for Decades, Killing Millions of Babies

The U.S. Supreme Court’s terrible abortion decision Monday has pro-life advocates even more motivated to defeat Joe Biden in November.

Biden has grown increasingly radical in his abortion stance, and, if he has the chance, he would appoint judges who would solidify United States as one of the most extreme pro-abortion countries in the world.

Though the Supreme Court ruling Monday was disappointing, it also was a narrow 5-4 ruling, with President Donald Trump’s two appointees dissenting from the majority. And with several aging justices who could retire soon, including pro-abortion Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the stakes in November are high.

“Who names the next justice wins” on abortion, Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser predicted.

If Biden is the one, America could see abortions increase again and more unborn babies’ and mothers’ lives put in jeopardy.

The Washington Examiner reports Biden’s campaign reacted to the ruling Monday by promising to go after states that pass abortion clinic health and safety regulations such as the one struck down in Louisiana.

“My Justice Department will do everything in its power to stop the rash of state laws that so blatantly violate a woman’s protected, constitutional right to choose,” Biden said in a statement.

Here’s more from the report:

[Dannenfelser] warned that the possibility would be a crippling blow to the anti-abortion movement.

“Joe Biden, who has abandoned babies in the womb he once voted to protect, vows to stack the Court with abortion extremists,” Dannenfelser said in a statement, noting that, although the anti-abortion movement lost in court on Monday, the fact that Kavanaugh and Gorsuch voted in the minority should give social conservatives faith in Trump for keeping “his promise to appoint constitutionalist Supreme Court justices.”

Dannenfelser noted on Twitter that by joining the liberals, Roberts inadvertently gave the anti-abortion movement fuel to push harder on the issue in the presidential and senate elections.

Politico reports other pro-life and conservative groups also are urging voters to consider what’s at stake in November.

“We are now on the 5-yard line and this is not the time to quit — it’s time to redouble our efforts,” Ralph Reed, co-founder of the Faith & Freedom Coalition, told the news outlet. “If Donald Trump is reelected and gets one or two more appointments, we have a good chance of having a pro-life majority on the Supreme Court. If he is defeated and Biden becomes president, we lose that chance for a generation.”

Jessica Anderson, executive director of Heritage Action, the political arm of the Heritage Foundation, said the ruling could have been 7-2 if a pro-abortion Democrat was in office.

“Conservatives should not lose heart: These decisions actually prove the importance of nominating and confirming good judges,” Anderson said.

The abortion industry also is investing big in the upcoming election, hoping to expand the pro-abortion majority on the Supreme Court. Planned Parenthood’s political arm recently announced plans to spend at least $45 million on the election, triple what it spent in 2016, according to Politico.

“We just saw the Trump administration confirm its 200th judge, and it was someone who would overturn Roe,” said Alexis McGill Johnson, who runs the billion-dollar abortion chain.

On Monday, Biden promised to support abortion on demand.

“Women’s health care rights have been under attack as states across the country have passed extreme laws restricting women’s constitutional right to choice under any circumstance,” he said in a statement after the ruling. “As President, I will codify Roe v. Wade and my Justice Department will do everything in its power to stop the rash of state laws that so blatantly violate a woman’s protected, constitutional right to choose.”

“It’s wrong. It’s pernicious. And, we have to stop it,” Biden insisted.

But Biden’s position on abortion better fits those descriptions. By supporting Roe v. Wade, he supports some of the most radical pro-abortion laws in the world. The 1972 ruling made the U.S. one of only seven countries in the world that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. It prevents states from passing even modest protections for unborn babies prior to viability, and, if Biden takes office, protections for unborn babies post-viability could go away, too.

Unlike most Americans, Biden also supports taxpayer-funded abortions. If he would succeed in this goal, tens of thousands more unborn babies could be slaughtered in abortions every year in America.

Pro-life advocates have been disappointed time and time again by the U.S. Supreme Court. Republican-appointed justices have not ruled to protect unborn babies, and pro-lifers’ uncertainties about Chief Justice John Roberts were confirmed Monday. But one thing is certain. If Biden wins, he would nominate radical pro-abortion judges who could take our country backward to the days of 1.5 million slaughtered unborn babies every single year, to the days of partial-birth abortions and back alley abortion facilities practicing openly on main street because there are no health or safety standards. Nothing short of women’s and babies’ lives are at stake.
