From the United States to South America to Africa is coming massive opposition to President Joe Biden’s global pro-abortion policies.
“Please help us, don’t kill us” was the message of a new video featuring a dozen Africans’ reactions to Biden, The Federalist reports.
Produced by Obianuju Ekeocha, the founder and president of Culture of Life Africa, the video shows students, business people and professionals pleading with Biden to stop funding abortions.
“Children walk homelessly on streets; youth dropped out of schools; people [are] dying of hunger every day. Children [are] being abused and used as slaves in their homes,” Rose, a teacher, said in the video. “These are things we need funds on, not abortion. God will never bless a nation that destroys its children.”
But Biden is listening to the powerful pro-abortion lobby, not the voices of the world’s people.
In one of his first acts as president, Biden repealed President Donald Trump’s Mexico City Policy and restored millions of taxpayer funding to some of the largest abortion groups in the world, groups that abort millions of unborn babies every year and pressure pro-life countries to legalize abortions.

Biden acted in contradiction to his supposedly devout Catholic faith and public opinion. A January Marist poll found that a strong majority of Americans (77 percent), including Republicans and Democrats, oppose taxpayer funding for abortions overseas.
People in Africa and Central and South America have been speaking out strongly against Biden’s action, too. Obianuju Ekeocha implored the Democrat president to listen to “the cry of the heart of the ordinary African person” and stop forcing his pro-abortion ideologies onto the world.
“We all deserve the right to live. I stand against the funding of abortion in Africa,” said Matthew, an operation manager, in the video.
Aicha, a family counselor, urged Biden to recognize that the people of Africa are hurting for basic necessities like clean drinking water, education and good governance.
“Abortion is not an African problem,” Aicha said. “… we beg you not to fund abortion-related programs in Africa. We have real problems in Africa, it is not abortion.”
Here’s more from The Federalist:
Marion Lisa, a lawyer, explains three principles the African community is built on: the sanctity of life, equal dignity for all, and protecting the weak and the vulnerable. Reflecting on these principles, she concludes, “Since the right to life is inherent, I believe the same should be accorded to the unborn child. The energy should be diverted to other sectors that we need to develop. Therefore, protect the unborn child.” …
Stella Marris, an entrepreneur in Nigeria, lists five things Nigerians need more than abortions: poverty alleviation, education, employment, electricity, and better infrastructure. She also points out that abortion is illegal in Nigeria. She pleaded with President Biden: “Please help us, don’t kill us.”
Earlier this month, Nigerian Catholic Archbishop Ignatius Kaigama also lamented Biden’s actions promoting abortions across the world. He told Crux that killing a baby, born or unborn, is an “abominable crime” and “abortion is a direct attack on life that also wounds the woman and undermines the family and above all, it offends God.”
Biden’s action means Planned Parenthood and MSI Reproductive Choices (formerly Marie Stopes International) will receive tens of millions of U.S. tax dollars as they abort unborn babies and promote abortions across the world.
These two groups alone abort millions of unborn babies every year. Both abortion groups also have faced numerous scandals, including allegations of forced abortions, botched abortions that killed mothers as well as their unborn babies, sales of aborted baby body parts and failures to report sexual abuse of minors.
Under Trump, Planned Parenthood’s international arm was defunded of about $100 million and the British-based abortion chain MSI Reproductive Choices lost about $73 million in U.S. tax dollars.
