Biden Pledges to Restore Nation’s “Soul,” But He’s Fine With Abortion Destroying 62 Million Souls

During his acceptance speech Thursday night at the Democrat Party convention, Joe Biden pledged to restore the nation’s “soul” if elected president. But he’s perfectly fine with abortion destroying 62 million souls since the infamous Roe v. Wade decision in 1973.

“The current President has cloaked America in darkness for much too long. Too much anger. Too much fear. Too much division,” Biden said during a speech that mostly attacked President Trump.

“Here and now, I give you my word: If you entrust me with the presidency, I will draw on the best of us, not the worst. I will be an ally of the light, not of the darkness. It’s time for us, for We the People, to come together.”

“History has thrust one more urgent task on us,” he said. “Will we be the generation that finally wipes the stain of racism from our national character?”

“This is our moment,” he said in closing. “This is our mission. May history be able to say that the end of this chapter of American darkness began here tonight as love and hope and light joined in the battle for the soul of the nation. And this is a battle that we, together, will win.”

But Biden’s record and position on abortion are anything but “light” in the battle of good versus evil.

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.

SIGN THE PLEDGE: We Can’t Vote for Pro-Abortion Joe Biden

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.

Recently, Biden confirmed he would force Americans to fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business if he is elected president.

Biden would overturn a key pro-life policy President Trump enacted. During his first week in office, President Donald Trump issued an executive order known as the Mexico City Policy or the Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance Act that revoked taxpayer funding to the International Planned Parenthood abortion business.

The policy prohibits taxpayer funding to international groups that promote and/or provide abortions overseas, the biggest of which is the International Planned Parenthood Federation. Trump’s decision applied to nearly nine billion dollars in U.S. taxpayer funds to foreign non-governmental organizations. The policy ensures U.S. funds continue to go to health care, humanitarian relief, and even family planning; it only blocks funding to those groups like IPPF that perform or promote abortion in other nations. Ultimately, that cost Planned Parenthood’s international abortion company $100 million.

Since that order, the Trump administration has expanded it to cover additional foreign funding – disqualifying the abortion giant from other taxpayer revenue streams.

Biden is so radical on abortion he has the endorsement of Planned Parenthood.

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. Trump has the support of pro-life groups, which represent the majority of Americans on abortion.

Kate Michelman, a former leader of NARAL, is not worried at all about whether Biden would promote abortion as president.

“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!”
