Christian writer Dr. Michael Brown told evangelicals who voted for President Joe Biden to repent for their action in empowering his radical pro-abortion agenda.
Christianity Daily reports Brown responded to a statement from Evangelicals for Biden last week lamenting the president’s plans to force taxpayers to fund abortions through the COVID-19 relief bill. The bill passed Congress on Wednesday and heads to Biden’s desk for his signature.
Evangelicals for Biden said voters feel “used and betrayed” after Biden’s campaign promised to work with them on “common-ground solutions on the issue of abortion.” The Federalist reports the group, which represents more than 5,000 pro-life evangelical Christians, endorsed Biden in October.
Brown said those voters should have known better. He pointed to a 2019 New York Times article that explained Biden’s newfound support for taxpayer-funded abortions as well as his promises to end the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits taxpayer funding for most abortions in Medicaid and other federal programs.
Biden was not moderate on the campaign trail. Quite the opposite, he abandoned all “common ground” on abortion and embraced a radical pro-abortion agenda. That included ending his long-time support of the Hyde Amendment, which has saved about 2.4 million babies’ lives.

Biden’s and Democrats’ first effort to force taxpayers to fund the killing of unborn babies in abortions is coming through the new COVID-19 relief bill. The $1.9 trillion spending bill does not include any limits on taxpayer funding for abortions, and, on Sunday, Senate Democrats blocked Republicans’ attempts to restore the Hyde Amendment to the bill.
Not holding back criticism, Brown said Christians who voted for Biden displayed a “willful ignorance” and refused to listen to others’ warnings about the Democrat politician, according to the report.
“Only repentance can bring mercy from the screams of the unborn whose fates you have helped seal,” he said.
Here’s more from the report:
Brown said that there were plenty of warnings before on the grave consequences of simply riding on the Democrat leaders’ promises, and enumerated several incidents that these warnings were put forth. Nonetheless, the pro-Biden evangelicals did not heed them.
“Surprise, surprise. And in this case, I don’t mind saying that we told you so in advance. These are grave matters indeed, and that’s why our warnings were grave as well,” Brown wrote.
Brown encouraged evangelical Christians who voted for Biden to “ask God’s forgiveness for helping empower this radical, pro-abortion agenda” and reach out to Christians who voted for President Donald Trump to “rebuild bridges and find common ground.”
By being united “in transcending the political parties,” Brown said he hopes that Christians will restore America to a nation that values the sanctity of life.
