Joe Biden picked a fellow abortion activist as his running mate today, naming pro-abortion California Senator Kamala Harris as his vice-presidential running mate.
Harris has a 100% pro-abortion voting record and has defended abortions up to birth. The California Senator said she supports women making the decision whether or not to terminate the life of their unborn baby even if that abortion occurs just before birth.
Harris’ comments last year came just days after she voted with Senate Democrats to block an anti-infanticide bill that would offer medical care and treatment for babies who survive abortions.
“I think it’s up to a woman to make that decision, and I will always stand by that,” she told TheDCNF. “I think she needs to make that decision with her doctor, with her priest, with her spouse. I would leave that decision up to them.”
The comments were no surprise given that Harris voted for infanticide and has co-sponsored a radical pro-abortion bill that would have legalized abortions for basically any reason up to birth. The so-called “Women’s Health Protection Act” was introduced in Congress in 2017, with dozens of Democrat sponsors, including Harris and presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Beto O’Rourke, Kristen Gillibrand and Bernie Sanders.
Nicknamed the “Abortion Without Limits Until Birth Act” by pro-life groups, the bill would have invalidated nearly all state and federal abortion regulations, including waiting periods, informed consent requirements, bans on late-term abortions and sex-selection abortions and more.
Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life,told LifeNews that Harris’ addition makes Biden’s ticket the most pro-abortion ever.
“Biden made his selection to increase his support among women and people of color, but for people who love America, who love civilization, there can be no support for any candidate in a party that calls for taxpayer-funded abortion throughout pregnancy,” he told LifeNews.com.
“Even with Sen. Harris on the ticket, Americans will have the same choices,” Father Pavone continued. “Democrat extremism doesn’t end with abortion. In this election, voters will choose between a free market or socialism; prosperity or a ruined economy; a secure nation or open borders; the Constitution or judicial tyranny.
Harris has a long track record promoting abortion and has recently come under fire for calling a pro-life Catholic nominee an “extremist” simply because he is a member of a Catholic group.
Harris is so extreme one abortion that she has received awards for her abortion advocacy.
She also raided the home of David Daleiden, who exposed Pl;anned Parenthood selling body parts of aborted babies.
Biden has a long pro-abortion 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!”
