Leading pro-life groups slammed Joe Biden on Thursday after he indicated he would issue two executive orders forcing Americans to fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business and both its domestic and global abortion agenda.
Joe Biden will issue yet another executive order today, this time overturning a pro-life rule President Donald Trump put in place to defund International Planned Parenthood, which kills babies in abortions around the world and lobbies to legalize abortions in pro-life countries.
Another of Biden’s executive orders will roll back Trump’s Title X policy, which defunded the Planned Parenthood abortion chain of more than $50 million taxpayer dollars.
The pro-life group Catholic Vote told LifeNews.com that his orders end the charade that Biden is a “devout” Catholic.
“Our national nightmare is one week old. And “devout” Joe Biden is celebrating with more child-killing,” said Brian Burch of CatholicVote. “The president today is expected to announce his repeal of the Mexico City Policy — an important protection first put in place by President Reagan (and improved by President Trump) that prevents American tax dollars from flowing to international organizations that promote and provide abortions.”
“Joe Biden is an enemy of life, period. While he once held to some semblance of coherency on the life issue, he has since fully sold his soul to the Democratic Party’s War on the Unborn,” he added.

Ashley McGuire, Senior Fellow with The Catholic Association, agreed.
“President Biden’s decision to restore taxpayer funding for international abortions is tragic, especially after he campaigned extensively on his Catholic faith. Americans overwhelmingly oppose their tax dollars being used to fund abortions. The latest polling shows that more than three-fourths of Americans oppose taxpayer funding of abortion, including a majority of those who call themselves pro-choice. President Biden’s latest move is meant to placate the well-funded abortion extremists in his party and violates his pledge to restore unity to America.,” she said.
“Funneling U.S. tax dollars to abortion groups overseas is an abhorrent practice that flies in the face of the ‘unity’ Joe Biden and Kamala Harris promised to inspire,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Rather than rally the nation around common ground policies to affirm and promote life, today they force taxpayers to bankroll abortion businesses overseas, opening up a slush fund for groups like Marie Stopes International and the International Planned Parenthood Federation. These abortion industry giants shamefully push their agenda on deeply pro-life nations and cultures. Americans across the political spectrum oppose the use of taxpayer funding to promote abortion and abortion businesses. Despite this, the new administration is moving forward with a payout to the abortion industry that backed their political campaign.”
And March for Life President Jeanne Mancini said in a statement that “Rescinding the Mexico City Policy on the eve of the March for Life is a deeply disturbing move, especially when the president says he wants national unity.”
“It goes against the wishes of an overwhelming majority of Americans,” she added. “The government should never force taxpayers to fund abortions, either here or abroad, but should work to protect the inherent dignity of all persons, born and unborn.”
