Joe Biden, a man celebrated as the second Catholic president in U.S. history, has violated non-negotiable principles of his faith at least 32 times so far this year, according to a new report from the Catholic League.

Biden touts himself as a devout Catholic who attends Mass frequently and carries rosary beads everywhere he goes. But many of his public policies directly violate the faith to which he claims to belong, including his radical pro-abortion policies.

Breitbart reports the new Catholic League report identifies 32 actions that Biden has taken in the past five months to expand the killing of unborn babies in abortions, curtail religious freedom or violate Catholic beliefs about sex and the family.

The Catholic League sent its report to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops on Monday ahead of the bishops’ June meeting, according to the report. At that meeting, the bishops plan to vote on crafting a document with guidance about whether to deny Communion to Catholic politicians like Biden who openly defy the faith.

Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League, said his organization has been “tracking policy decisions made by President Biden that depart from Catholic teachings” since he took office in January.

During his first two weeks in office, Biden took nine actions that violated his faith, according to Breitbart. These include ending the Mexico City Policy and restoring taxpayer funding to the international Planned Parenthood branch and other abortion advocacy groups that promote and provide abortions overseas.

Biden also celebrated the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, calling the infamous abortion ruling a “foundational precedent.” The 1973 ruling led to more than 63 million aborted babies and forced states to legalize abortion on demand.

The Democrat president also took action to restore funding to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), a group linked to forced abortions and forced sterilizations in China.

Then, in February, Biden began pressuring Congress to pass the Equality Act, which would strip away conscience protections for pro-life medical workers and create a “right” to demand an abortion.

Two months later, Biden took perhaps the most egregious and dangerous action to-date, when his administration stopped enforcing FDA safety regulations for abortion drugs. Now, the abortion industry can sell deadly abortion drugs through the mail without ever seeing the woman in person.

That same month, the Biden administration reversed another pro-life action by the Trump administration that stopped taxpayer funding to research using aborted baby body parts. As a result, Americans’ tax dollars may be used again to fund gristly experiments, such as implanting aborted babies’ scalps and fingers onto mice for scientists to study.

Here’s more from Breitbart:

In his American Rescue Plan Act, Biden included no language to prohibit taxpayer dollars from funding abortions domestically and internationally, a situation consistently interpreted by federal courts as compelling the provision of abortion.

Biden’s Secretary of State Antony Blinken [also] disbanded the Commission on Unalienable Rights this month because it overemphasized religious liberty.

Now, Biden is trying to funnel even more money to the billion-dollar abortion industry. His new 2022 budget plan eliminates the Hyde Amendment, a longstanding, once bipartisan measure that prohibits taxpayer funding for elective abortions in Medicaid. The amendment has been credited with saving approximately 2.5 million babies from abortion.

His administration also is finalizing a plan to reverse President Donald Trump’s actions defunding Planned Parenthood through the Title X program.

These and other actions prompted pro-life leaders to label Biden as the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history. His actions also have caused controversy in the Catholic Church, especially among American bishops as they debate whether Biden and others who obstinately defy the faith and refuse to repent should be allowed to participate in Communion.
