Pope Francis reportedly congratulated former vice president Joe Biden Thursday, the Biden transition team claimed, even though Biden hasn’t officially won the disputed election and supports unlimited abortions.
Biden spoke with the Holy Father and thanked him for “extending blessings and congratulations,” according to Axios. Biden also praised the pope for “promoting peace, reconciliation, and the common bonds of humanity around the world,” the publication reported.
“The president-elect expressed his desire to work together on the basis of a shared belief in the dignity and equality of all humankind on issues,” Biden’s transition team said in a statement, Axios reported.
The publication noted that these issues include “caring for the marginalized and the poor, addressing the crisis of climate change, and welcoming and integrating immigrants and refugees into our communities.”
If Pope Francis mentioned Biden’s pro-abortion views and how they are out of step with pro-life teachings, neither the Biden team nor any media outlets report such a conversation having taken place.
Biden hasn’t officially won the election but he’s already pushing his abortion agenda.

Pete Buttigieg, a supposedly moderate Democrat who supports abortions without limits through the third trimester, is rumored to be a top candidate for the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, should Joe Biden win the presidency.
And 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, but he’s up for a post in a possible Biden administration.
And Biden has already said he will force Americans to fund abortions as soon as he takes office.
Though Biden’s campaign and many news outlets have presumed victory, votes are still being certified and the Trump campaign has pointed to evidence of voter fraud in multiple states.
Meanwhile, many Catholic voters are expressing serious concerns about Biden’s and Harris’s pro-abortion policies, which could increase the killing of unborn babies in abortions.
Mary FioRito, the Cardinal George Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, told The Tablet that she does not understand how Catholics can support a man who claims to be Catholic but supports killing unborn babies in abortions.
“When you’re talking about this being an important part of your life, if you take that foundation of social Catholic teaching out it’s like a house of cards,” FioRito said.
Here’s more from The Tablet:
[Author] Theresa Farnan shares this stance on abortion, but with a more specific concern.
Her focus is on eugenic abortion. As a mother of a child with Down syndrome, she fears fewer abortion restrictions will open the door for women to get an abortion because the baby has Down Syndrome or another disability. …
“I’m actually very sad about it,” she said. “I really am worried that the full-bore ‘pedal to the metal’ approach of democrats in support of unrestricted abortion rights is going to lead to even more pressure on expecting mothers.”
If his victory is confirmed, Biden has promised to support policies that will expand the killing of unborn babies in abortions and force taxpayers to fund their deaths.
Biden said he wants to codify Roe v. Wade into federal law and appoint Supreme Court justices who will support abortion on demand. He also said he would fight to end the Hyde Amendment and force taxpayers to pay for elective abortions – which could lead to 60,000 more unborn babies’ deaths to abortion each year.
In April, Biden went so far as to call the killing of unborn babies an “essential medical service” during the coronavirus pandemic. His health care plan would expand abortions as well. It would force insurance companies to cover abortions as “essential” health care under Obamacare.
He also promised to undo all of Trump’s progress for life, including defunding the Planned Parenthood abortion chain through his Mexico City and Title X policies.
On religious freedom, Biden’s position also is deeply troubling. Biden has endorsed anti-religious freedom policies that would force nuns, religious charities and hospitals to violate their deeply-held beliefs by funding the killing of unborn babies in abortions and potentially even by helping to facilitate their deaths.
Among them, he and his running mate Kamala Harris oppose a religious exemption from the Obamacare contraception mandate for the Little Sisters of the Poor, a nuns’ charity that serves the poor and elderly. The Supreme Court recently granted the Little Sisters relief from the Obama-era mandate, which would have forced them to fund contraception, including forms that may cause abortions, in their employee health plans.
