Joe Biden Will “Do Everything in His Power” to Overturn Pro-Life Laws Saving Babies From Abortion

Make no mistake, a vote for Joe Biden is a vote for more abortions.

Not only is the Democrat presidential candidate urging that taxpayers be forced to pay for elective abortions — which could lead to 60,000 more unnecessary killings of unborn babies every year, he also wants to make Roe v. Wade a federal law.

The 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision led to more than 61 million unborn babies’ abortion deaths in the U.S. And if codified into federal law, it could end the progress states have made to protect unborn babies from abortions since then.

On his campaign website, Biden promises to “stop state laws violating Roe v. Wade.”

“Biden will work to codify Roe v. Wade, and his Justice Department will do everything in its power to stop the rash of state laws that so blatantly violate Roe v. Wade,” the campaign states.

These state laws may include bans on late-term abortions on healthy, viable unborn babies, laws that protect unborn baby girls from being targeted in sex-selection abortions, and laws that protect women from shoddy abortion practices.

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

In June, when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on a major abortion case out of Louisiana, Biden responded with his belief in a “woman’s constitutional right to choice under any circumstances.” The circumstances in the Louisiana case involved abortionists not having hospital admitting privileges to treat patients suffering from emergency complications.

Robert P. George, professor of jurisprudence at Princeton University, told EWTN Pro-Life Weekly that Biden’s position is “disgraceful,” especially for someone who claims to be Catholic.

If Biden succeeds in codifying Roe into federal law, George said the move would “expose an entire class of human beings to death,” according to the Catholic News Agency.

“How can anybody who, as a Catholic, is committed to the proposition that every single member of the human family—irrespective certainly of race and sex and ethnicity, but also and equally irrespective of age, size, stage of development or condition of dependency—is the bearer of a profound and inherent and equal dignity, a creature made in the very image and likeness of God, how can someone who professes, as a Catholic to believe that, expose an entire class of human beings to death?” George asked.

The pro-life laws that states pass – and Biden wants to get rid of – do save lives.

According to the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, states have passed more than 400 pro-life laws since 2010. And as states pass these life-saving laws, abortion rates have been dropping to historic lows.

Guttmacher, which is considered to have the most comprehensive abortion data, reported abortions in 2018 fell to at an all-time low since Roe v. Wade. The pro-abortion group attributed the decline to lower pregnancy rates and better access to contraception. However, pro-life efforts to protect unborn babies and mothers, through legislation, education and support, also made a strong impact.

Biden would reverse this life-saving progress and return America to the early days after Roe when unborn babies were aborted for any reason up to birth at a rate of about 1.5 million a year.
