White House Works to Appease Abortion Lobby

Promotion of Abortion the Top Priority for Biden Administration

WASHINGTON — In signing an Executive Order today in response to the pro-abortion Democrats in Congress and the abortion lobby, President Biden confirmed, once again, that the White House is working to appease the abortion lobby to the detriment of women and their unborn children.

“On no other issue, from inflation to high gas prices, have President Biden and pro-abortion Democrats put forward so much effort as they have on abortion,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “President Biden seems to think that Americans’ problems can only be solved by killing its children by abortion. President Biden and the Democratic Party are pouring efforts into promoting abortion more than anything else.” 

Concerted efforts by the Biden administration, pro-abortion Democrats in the House and the Senate and the abortion lobby have coalesced into a plan to promote and expand abortion on demand following the Dobbs decision, which returned the debate to Congress and the state legislatures.

President Biden referred to the Dobbs decision as an “exercise in raw political power.” However, in the majority opinion, written by Justice Samuel Alito, the High Court noted:

Roe was egregiously wrong from the start. Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences. And far from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, Roe and Casey have enflamed debate and deepened division. It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.

“The Biden Administration and Congressional Democrats continue to promote abortion up until birth,” said Tobias. “Despite the rhetoric, nothing this administration does is going to help women and their unborn children.” 

Misinformation and deceptive statements permeated the President’s speech today. The truth is:

*The pro-life movement is vehemently opposed to women being prosecuted for having or seeking an abortion. An open letter to state legislators stating the opposition of the movement to the prosecution of women was signed by over 70 pro-life groups.

*Pro-life legislation explicitly makes clear that treatment for miscarriages does not fall under the legal meaning of abortion.

*No law exists that outlaws the treatment of ectopic pregnancies. No existing definition of abortion applies to the treatment of ectopic pregnancy.

Tobias stated, “Pro-abortion efforts by this administration and its abortion-lobby allies will only harm women and kill more children.”

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.
