NRL News Today looks back at where we were 13 days prior to the 2016 presidential election

by | Oct 21, 2020

Editor’s note. As we have for the last week, each day as we approach November 3rd, we’ll be taking a look back at what we wrote at a comparable point in time in 2016—in this case, October 26, 13 days from the November 8th General Election.

Our story ran under the headline, “A Stark Difference between the Candidates on Abortion” and contrasted the pro-life positions of the team of then candidate Donald Trump and his running mate former congressman and Gov. Mike Pence against the pro-abortion positions  of Hillary Clinton and Sen. Tim Kaine.

Below is a profile of the unswerving pro-abortion position of the Democrats’ current presidential nominee, former vice president Joe Biden. Just the names have changed from 2016: neither Clinton/Kaine nor Biden/Harris would protect the innocent.

Did you know just how radical Joe Biden’s positions are on abortion?

By Karen Cross, National Right to Life political director

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 now wants to overturn the Hyde Amendment, which, by eliminating virtually all federal funding of abortion, has saved well 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.” Emanuel 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.
