Former President Barack Obama praised Joe Biden on Wednesday as a man of empathy and decency who truly cares about every American during his speech at the Democratic National Convention.
But Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris, like Obama, do not care about every American – especially those not yet born. Their allegiance, instead, is to the billion-dollar abortion industry, which donates huge amounts of money to Democrats’ campaigns.
Obama, who was described as the most pro-abortion president in history, slammed President Donald Trump in his speech while painting Biden as an empathetic leader, according to CBN News.
“This administration has shown it will tear our democracy down if that’s what it takes for them to win,” Obama said.
He continued: “I did hope for the sake of our country that Donald Trump would show some interest in taking the job seriously, but he never did. What I know about Joe, what I know about Kamala is that they actually care about every American.”
Obama claimed Biden treats every person with dignity and respect, as his parents taught him to do.
“No one is better than you, Joe. But you’re better than nobody. That empathy, that decency, the belief that everybody counts, that’s who Joe is,” Obama said, according to an ABC News transcript.
His words, however, ring empty when one considers Biden’s positions on abortion and religious freedom. The Democrat presidential candidate has no compassion for unborn babies, 61 million of whom have been slaughtered in abortions since Roe v. Wade in 1973.
Biden supports radical pro-abortion policies that are out of touch with most Americans, policies that would expand abortions by codifying Roe v. Wade into federal law and forcing taxpayers to pay for them. He also wants to restore taxpayer funding to the billion-dollar abortion chain Planned Parenthood as well as to groups that promote and provide abortions overseas.
Unlike past Democrats, Biden has not talked about wanting to reduce abortions or make them rare. In April, he went so far as to call the killing of unborn babies in abortions an “essential medical service” during the coronavirus pandemic.
And while Biden claims to be a “very devout Catholic and a person of deep faith,” he opposes religious freedom policies that protect Catholic organizations like the Little Sisters of the Poor, which serves the poor and elderly.
Harris’s record on abortion is even worse. A California senator, she has a 100% pro-abortion voting record and has defended abortions up to birth. Last year, she voted with U.S. Senate Democrats to block an anti-infanticide bill that would require medical care and treatment for babies who survive abortions.
Her past statements and actions also raise serious concerns about the future of religious liberty and freedom of the press. She recently came under fire for discriminating against a judicial nominee simply because he is a member of a Catholic fraternal organization.
Notorious in pro-life circles, Harris became well-known after she raided the home of undercover journalist David Daleiden, who exposed Planned Parenthood’s baby body parts trade. Harris was the attorney general of California at the time, and the state’s prosecution of Daleiden is on-going. If convicted, he could be sent to jail – even though his investigation led to the shutdown of two companies that sold aborted baby body parts.
Harris’s prosecution of the undercover journalists, while accepting campaign donations and other support from Planned Parenthood, was met with harsh criticism. Even the pro-abortion Los Angeles Times editorial board criticized her office for prosecuting journalists in a way that jeopardizes the freedom of the press, calling it a “disturbing overreach.”
Biden, Harris and their supporters may talk a lot about compassion and values, but their policies tell a different story when it comes to the most vulnerable of all Americans: babies in the womb.
