Did you know Joe Biden’s radical pro-abortion positions?

Editor’s note. Sen. Bernie Sanders dropped out today, effectively making former Vice President Joe Biden the Democrats’ presidential nominee. Biden will be up against pro-life President Donald Trump. The following is a handy primer that you can share not only with pro-lifers but also all those millions of Americans who are not pro-abortion extremists like Mr. Biden.

Did you know Biden supports the Democratic platform of unlimited abortion through birth? In 2019, Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, said, “At a time where the fundamental freedoms enshrined in Roe are under attack, we need full-throated allies in our leaders.” She added, “We’re pleased that Joe Biden has joined the rest of the 2020 Democratic field in coalescing around the Party’s core values — support for abortion rights…”

Did you know that last June, Biden changed his position on taxpayer funding of abortion? He wants to overturn the Hyde Amendment, which, by eliminating virtually all federal funding of abortion, has saved over two million lives. Once a supporter of the Hyde Amendment, Biden now vigorously endorses using taxpayer dollars to pay for unfettered abortion on demand. Read more about this here

Did you know Biden pledges that his judicial nominees would “support the right of privacy, on which the entire notion of a woman’s right to choose is based.” [The Washington Post, 10/15/19.]  

Did you know that in 2011, as Barack Obama’s vice president, Biden said of the Chinese government’s brutal one-child policy, “Your policy has been one which I fully understand—I’m not second-guessing—of one child per family.” The one-child policy was built around coerced abortions, late-term abortions, and infanticide.  Read more here.

Did you know Biden’s lack of respect for life includes surrounding himself with advisers who hold the vulnerable elderly in low esteem? Biden included Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, a University of Pennsylvania bioethicist, in his team of advisers on the coronavirus. Dr. Emanuel has written explicitly that he “hope[s] to die at 75,” because “living too long” renders people “faltering and declining,” and “transforms how people experience us, relate to us, and, most important, remember us. We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic.” He said that beyond age 75, he would refuse not only cancer screenings and advanced life-saving treatment, but also flu shots and antibiotics. Think of all of the vibrant people you know and love who are “living too long” past age 75! (Biden is 77, by the way.) Read more here

Did you know Joe Biden’s official campaign site includes the following on his list of priorities in his 2020 campaign?

  • Working to codify Roe v. Wade (which means unlimited abortion on demand);
  • Supporting the repeal of the Hyde Amendment (which means taxpayer funding of abortion on demand); and,
  • Restoring federal funding for Planned Parenthood, including through Medicaid and Title X (which is taxpayer funding to the nation’s largest abortion provider and promoter).

Now you know.

Bernie Sanders has suspended his campaign and Joe Biden, the presumptive nominee, is pro-abortion across the board. You know he will be challenging pro-life President Donald Trump in November.  For a synopsis of Trump’s presidential record on life, click here.
