Joe Biden Claims He’s a “Devout Catholic,” But His New Vatican Ambassador is Pro-Abortion

Even President Joe Biden’s new ambassador to the Vatican has a record of supporting abortion.

Biden professes to be a devout Catholic and much has been made of his regular Mass attendance and his religious beliefs in the mainstream media. But many of his actions as president continuously and openly defy the very same faith to which he claims to belong, especially on matters of human life.

The Democrat president has filled his administration with radical pro-abortion leaders who are pushing to expand the killing of unborn babies in abortions.

His choice for ambassador to the Vatican, Joe Donnelly, also has a pro-abortion record. The Catholic News Agency reports Donnelly began serving in the new role Monday by meeting with Pope Francis.

“I look forward to deepening our ties with the Holy See. My family and I are proud to be members of the Catholic faith,” Donnelly said in a statement from the U.S. Embassy. “From my childhood, through my college and law school years at the University of Notre Dame, through years of public service in Indiana and Washington, D.C., the Catholic Church has been a core part of my life and my values.”

Donnelly also promised that he will “advance human rights and dignity” through his new role with the Holy See, according to the report.

“Together, we work hard to be a force for good in the world, defending human rights and religious freedom, combating trafficking in persons, caring for the environment, and advancing peace, security, and the rights of children, seniors, women, and all of our brothers and sisters everywhere,” the new ambassador said.

A former U.S. senator from Indiana, Donnelly campaigned as a pro-life candidate, but he had a mixed voting record on the issue and sided with the abortion industry more often than the pro-life movement. In 2018, his pro-life voting record was just 28 percent, according to National Right to Life.

In 2019, Donnelly lost his seat to pro-life Republican U.S. Sen. Mike Braun. After the loss, Donnelly helped to lead the Catholics for Biden campaign to elect the pro-abortion Democrat to office, according to Breitbart. During the presidential election campaign, Donnelly praised Biden as a man whose Catholic faith “beats deep in his heart every moment of his life.”

But Biden quickly has become the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history. He has been filling his administration with radical abortion activists, including lawyers who want to send pro-lifers to jail for exposing Planned Parenthood’s aborted baby body parts trade. And Planned Parenthood CEO Alexis McGill Johnson has bragged openly about her influence in staffing the Biden administration.

Now, Christian and conservative organizations are raising alarm about a potential new pro-abortion mandate from the Biden administration that could shut down Christian health care throughout the U.S.
