A Virginia Catholic priest told President Joe Biden to go to confession over the weekend after the president criticized Florida for passing a law to protect unborn babies from abortions.
Despite claiming to be a devout Catholic, Biden defended the killing of unborn babies in abortions several times last week, including after the Florida legislature passed a historic bill to ban abortions after 15 weeks. Pro-life leaders estimate it will save up to 5,000 unborn babies’ lives every year.
“Last night, the Republican-controlled Florida legislature passed a dangerous bill that will severely restrict women’s access to reproductive health care,” Biden said. “My Administration will not stand for the continued erosion of women’s constitutional rights.”
Responding on Twitter, Father Dan Beeman, of the Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Newport News, encouraged the Democrat president to go to confession, BizPac Review reports.
“Confessions are at noon on Sunday, 5pm on Wednesday, and 3 on Saturday, Mr. President,” Beeman wrote, sharing a link to Biden’s comments.

Earlier in the week, the priest also appeared to call out Biden for supporting the killing of unborn babies in abortions during his State of the Union address.
“Abortion is not healthcare. Killing is not healing,” Beeman wrote on Twitter during the speech. “Disgusting.”
Biden referred to the killing of 63 million unborn babies in abortions since Roe v. Wade as “health care” in his State of the Union address last week.
A day after the speech, Owen Jensen with the Catholic news outlet EWTN confronted Biden about his pro-abortion views, asking, “As a Catholic, why do you support abortion as a Catholic, defying church teachings?”
Biden responded, “Well, I tell you what, I don’t want to get in a debate with you on theology…” Later, he added, “I’m not going to make a judgment for other people.”
Catholic Church leaders have been debating whether to deny communion to Biden because of his radical pro-abortion policies. The church teaches that every human life is valuable from conception to natural death, and abortion is a grave moral evil.
Many have urged the president to repent, confess and reverse his evil actions. Instead, Biden has become even more pro-abortion, allowing dangerous abortion drugs to be sold through the mail and abandoning his opposition to taxpayer funding for abortions.
Pro-life advocates describe Biden as the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history.
