Joe Biden’s position on abortion has changed over the years.
But today, there is no doubt that he supports the radical priorities of the billion-dollar abortion industry, not the American people.
Unfortunately, many news outlets are not informing their readers about just how radical Biden has become. On Tuesday, for example, a Newsweek “fact check” questioned whether the Democrat presidential candidate supports abortions up to birth and failed to mention that he wants to force taxpayers to pay for elective abortions.
Prompting the fact check was a tweet from President Donald Trump that called out Biden’s extremism.
“Biden and Democrats just clarified the fact that they are fully in favor of (very) LATE TERM ABORTION, right up until the time of birth, and beyond — which would be execution,” Trump wrote Tuesday morning on Twitter. “Biden even endorsed the Governor of Virginia, who stated this clearly for all to hear. GET OUT & VOTE!!!”
Newsweek questioned Trump’s statement, arguing that Biden’s position is “much more complicated than Trump claims.”
However, the evidence that it pointed to suggests Biden does support abortions without limits. The Biden campaign did not return the news outlet’s request for clarification on the matter.
Biden’s support for Roe v. Wade is one indicator. On Monday, he promised to pass legislation to make Roe v. Wade “the law of the land.” Last year, his press secretary also told NBC News that Biden “firmly believes that Roe v. Wade is the law of the land and should not be overturned.”
The 1973 Supreme Court ruling forced states to legalize abortion on demand, and some states – including Colorado and New Mexico – still do not have any limits on the killing of unborn babies in abortions. Roe made the U.S. one of only seven countries in the world that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy – a fact confirmed by the Washington Post in 2017.
Biden also has made it clear that he represents his party.
“My party is me. Right now, I am the Democratic Party. I am the Democratic Party, right now. The platform of the Democratic Party is what I, in fact, approved of,” Biden said at the presidential debate last week.
The Democratic Party platform supports abortions without limits and calls for forcing taxpayers to pay for them. Newsweek couched this, however, in less certain terms, writing:
While the Democratic Party states it believes every woman should have access to safe and legal abortion, it does not specify its stance on how long into a pregnancy an abortion should be performed, leading some conservative politicians to maintain that Democrats must therefore support late-term abortion.
Biden’s support for Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, despite accusations of racism and support for infanticide, also is a troubling sign of his utter disregard for human life before birth.
Northam drew national criticism in 2019 for supporting a bill that would have allowed abortions up to the point of labor, even if there were no physical health problems with the mother or baby. The bill did not pass.
In an interview in January 2019, Northam, a physician, went even further by adding his support for infanticide as well as late-term abortions.
“If a mother is in labor…the infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and mother,” he said.
Biden identifies with Democrat leaders like Northam who support abortion on demand. From New York and Vermont, Rhode Island and Virginia, to New Mexico, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Washington, D.C., Democrat politicians are trying to pass or have passed laws to expand late-term abortions on viable unborn babies. Some even want to repeal laws that protect babies who survive abortions from infanticide and laws that provide justice to unborn babies who are victims of violence against their mothers.
To the Democratic Party, abortion on demand is “sacred ground.” And, as Biden himself said last week, “I am the Democratic Party.”
