(Liberty Bell) – Biden? Pro-life?
President Donald Trump is slamming this ridiculous notion, which has been put forward by some Catholics on the very flimsy basis that Biden is anti-death penalty while Trump is pro-death penalty.
The president made perfectly clear that he is the authentically pro-life candidate during an interview on June 22 with Raymond Arroyo, the host of EWTN’s “The World Over,” Life News reports.
During the interview, Trump noted the kinds of judges that Democrats have historically put on the Supreme Court; judges that have consistently defended unlimited access to abortion for any reason up to birth, and on the taxpayer dime.
“I’m pro-life, he’s not. And the Democrats — look who he’s putting on the court,” Trump said.
“They want to put people on the court- you have no chance. So I’m pro-life, the Democrats aren’t. Nobody can say that Biden is, look at his stance over the years,” he explained, noting that Democrat party operatives will surely advance a very pro-abortion agenda were Biden to be elected to the White House.
Trump also noted the lack of distinction between Biden and Democrat governor Ralph Northam of Virginia, who expressed support for literal infanticide–yes, killing babies that have already been born–in a scenario in which parents would keep a baby “comfortable’ after birth until the baby passes away if they prefer not to provide the infant with life-saving medical treatment and care.
“Look at the governor of Virginia, look at what he did. He did an execution after. You know, normally you talk about late-term, his wasn’t late-term, his was, the baby was born, and then you can execute the baby. That’s the Democrats. That’s Joe Biden,” Trump said.
“Trump is right,” Life News explains:
Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats continue to refuse a request to allow a vote on the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, legislation that would stop infanticide and provide medical care and treatment for babies who survive abortions.
Last year, House Democrats refused a vote on the Born Alive bill for the 80th time — reading the same statement they have read the previous 79 occasions that claims there is no bipartisan agreement to bring the bill up for a vote. Despite the claim, Republican leaders have repeatedly asked Pelosi and top Democrats to reach an agreement for the bill to receive a vote.
Not only has Joe Biden refused to condemn this, but he put on his campaign team some of the same people who refused to support the anti-infanticide bill.
U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd of Connecticut and U.S. Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester of Delaware are heading up his panel to select a vice presidential nominee. Both refuse to allow a vote on the Born Alive bill.
But what does the candidate himself say? Recently, Biden said that he would commit to “the constitutional right to an abortion” and “reverse the Trump administration and states’ all-out assault on women’s right to choose.”
He also vowed to “work to codify Roe v. Wade.”
Naturally, his healthcare plan would include abortions as well, and force insurance companies to cover abortions as “essential” health care under Obamacare.
So tell me again how he could possibly be “pro-life”?
