Joe Biden and the Democratic Party Out of Touch with Majority of Americans on Abortion

Democrats Ignore the Needs of Women and Their Unborn Children to Promote Unlimited Abortion, Even Late in Pregnancy

WASHINGTON— Today, National Right to Life condemned the Biden administration’s fanatical devotion to unlimited abortion, even late in pregnancy.

In a speech replete with misinformation, President Biden once again demonstrated that the Biden administration pushes an extremist position on abortion and is more than willing to promote unlimited abortion, even late in pregnancy.

“Instead of supporting life-affirming programs and policies that help women and their unborn children, the Biden administration has poured its focus into promoting unlimited abortion, even late in pregnancy,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life.

Tobias continued, “This administration and Democratic leaders have repeatedly vilified and worked to undermine the life-saving work of the pro-life movement and its millions of volunteers.”

In his speech, President Biden promised to sign any legislation that would codify Roe v. Wade.

The Biden administration and the Democratic party have yet to hear of an abortion they wouldn’t support,” said Tobias. “Tragically, women and their unborn babies will be the ones to suffer.”

Polling data repeatedly shows that the vast majority of Americans oppose unlimited abortion, even late in pregnancy.

In a June 2022, Harris/Harvard CAPS Poll, when asked, “Do you think your state should allow abortion…?”, only 10% of the respondents said that abortion should be allowed up to 9 months, 18% said that it should be allowed up to 23 weeks, 23% said that it should be allowed up to 15 weeks, 12% said it should be allowed up to 6 weeks and 37% said it should be allowed only in cases of rape and incest.

Founded in 1968, the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the federation of affiliates in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia and more than 3,000 local chapters, is the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots pro-life organization. Recognized as the flagship of the pro-life movement, National Right to Life works through legislation and education to protect innocent human life from abortion, infanticide, assisted suicide and euthanasia.
