California Attorney General Xavier Becerra is working to put two pro-life leaders in jail after they exposed Planned Parenthood’s aborted baby body parts trade.
Now, Joe Biden, should he happen to win the presidential election, is considering Becerra for the highest justice office in the land: U.S. attorney general, The New York Times reports.
The report described Becerra’s political record as “progressive” in his roles as state attorney general and a former member of Congress. If Biden does not choose him for a cabinet position, the news outlet speculated that California Gov. Gavin Newsom may appoint Becerra to fill Kamala Harris’s open Senate seat, should Biden be confirmed as the winner.
Though Becerra, like Biden, claims to be Catholic, his record involving the lives of unborn babies and those who work to protect them is terrible.
Currently, Becerra is prosecuting David Daleiden, the Center for Medical Progress journalist who exposed Planned Parenthood’s aborted baby body parts trade. Daleiden’s powerful exposé led to the shutdown of two companies that sold aborted baby body parts in California.
However, Becerra is pursuing multiple felony charges against him and fellow investigator Sandra Merritt. If convicted, the pro-life leaders could be sent to jail on charges of eavesdropping, falsifying documents and recording people without their consent.

This unjust prosecution even prompted criticism from the Los Angeles Times editorial board. The editors, who support abortion, described Becerra’s prosecution as a “disturbing overreach” that jeopardizes the freedom of the press.
Important to note, Becerra did not act alone. He followed the lead of former California Attorney General Kamala Harris. And Harris appears to have taken orders from the Planned Parenthood abortion chain when she raided undercover journalist David Daleiden’s home in 2015.
A recently uncovered document from the California Department of Justice document suggests Harris may have received specific instructions from the abortion chain about what to take when her office raided Daleiden’s home. According to The Federalist, Harris met six Planned Parenthood leaders just two weeks before the raid.
Daleiden recently filed a lawsuit accusing Harris and Becerra of using state video-recording laws as a “political weapon” to silence speech that they disagree with.
The National Catholic Register reported more about Becerra’s anti-life record in September:
Becerra, California’s attorney general, opposed a bill that would penalize doctors performing sex-selective abortions, and has received perfect ratings from Planned Parenthood and NARAL.
As California’s attorney general, Becerra defended state mandates requiring insurers to cover abortions, even after Catholic nuns complained to the civil rights office of the federal Department of Health and Human Services, and the state faced major cuts to federal HHS funds.
“California has the sovereign right to protect women’s reproductive rights,” Becerra said in February, defending the state’s abortion insurance mandate.
On Biden’s cabinet, Becerra would continue his anti-life politics at a national level, threatening the lives of more unborn babies and the pro-lifers who work so hard to protect them.
