He shared a question he asks to demonstrate the consequences of one abortion.

“Sometimes to make the point, I just tell a person, “Think about if one of your grandparents, one of your four grandparents, had been aborted, you wouldn’t be here, but who else wouldn’t be here?’”

“People don’t think of it in those terms, let alone just the uniqueness and the dignity of human life,” he concluded. “But it is a gift that we have to protect and have a responsibility to protect.”

After the vote, Bishop Strickland spoke to his fellow bishops and emphasized the importance of abortion.

“I must speak for the babies,” he said, reminding everyone that it’s a “preeminent issue” and that the murder of unborn children “destroys the very foundation of our civilization” and that as a shepherd, he has to speak on this “abortion opens the door to evil, and allows Satan to run rampant through every aspect of human life.”

Though Biden claims to be Catholic, he is advancing the most radical pro-abortion agenda of any U.S. president in history, including plans to force taxpayers to pay for elective abortions all across the world.

Many Catholic bishops and other Christian leaders have expressed concerns that Biden’s radical abortion advocacy is misleading Catholics and creating scandal for the faith. They have said the church must do something to make it clear that Catholics cannot support abortion and must repent before participating in Communion.

Earlier this month, Biden met with Pope Francis at the Vatican. Afterward, the president said the pope told him he was a “good Catholic” and he should “keep receiving Communion”; however, the Vatican has not confirmed those remarks.

Biden openly defies church teachings about the sanctity of human life. After just 100 days in office, he surpassed President Barack Obama as the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history, including allowing mail-order abortions and trying to force taxpayers to fund abortions.

His administration also is fighting to overturn a pro-life Texas law that has saved thousands of unborn babies from abortion in the past two months. And it dropped a lawsuit defending a pro-life nurse from Vermont who was forced to participate in an abortion.
