Pro-lifers working to stave off pro-abortion legislation until the next election cycle

Speaking of double standards….

The pro-abortion tandem of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris is busy, busy, busy “undoing the damage” of the administration of pro-life President Donald Trump.

Their “repairs” include …

*Reversing the Mexico City Policy the day before the January 29 Virtual March for Life, commemorating the 48th anniversary of the appalling Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions. The impact will be to “force U.S. taxpayers to fund organizations that promote, lobby for or perform abortion on demand in foreign countries, ” to quote Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ).

*Beginning the process of acceding to Planned Parenthood. Once again, in violation of the original intent of Title X Family Planning dollars, the nation’s largest abortion provider will rake in tens of millions of dollars even though it co-locates with abortion clinics and will perform, promote, refer for, or support abortion as a method of family planning.

*Restoring US funding to the United Nations Population Fund which had been stopped under President Trump due to its complicity with China’s coercive population policy. 

*Withdrawing from the Geneva Consensus Declaration which asserted that “there is no international right to abortion, nor any international obligation on the part of States to finance or facilitate abortion.”

And they are just getting started. 

Could you say they were “emboldened” by winning the presidency by a sliver, maintaining a tiny, tiny majority in the House, and not even having a majority in the Senate [50 Democrats, 50 Republicans]?  They have a zero mandate but that will not stop them from pursuing policies that a majority of the public rejects.

I thought of the hyper pro-abortion activism of President Biden when I read a piece in the Texas Standard today under the headline “Emboldened Lege [Legislative] Republicans Push Bills Restricting Abortion Access.”

Understand that Republicans have solid majorities in both houses of the state legislature and a Republican is governor. If anyone could be said to have a mandate—to be rightly “emboldened”—it would be Republicans in Texas.

On Wednesday Jill Ament & Shelly Brisbin wrote

Andrea Zelinski covers state politics for Texas Monthly. She told Texas Standard that Republicans feel “freer” to push for abortion restrictions this year because of the GOP’s performance in the 2020 election, and because the U.S. Supreme Court now has a conservative majority.

Well, yes. Like his GOP colleagues, Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, unlike President Biden, did not hide his strong convictions on abortion until he was safely elected. No one had to guess that the Republican controlled legislature would pursue legislation protecting mothers and their unborn babies. 

There is a “conservative” —faithful to the Constitution—majority on the Supreme Court not because Republicans packed the High Court (as pro-abortion Democrats keep suggesting they will) but because they elected one of their own as President.

Pro-abortion Democrats, extremist by nature, cannot help but overshoot, aided by President Biden who is a willing accomplice to the dreams of the Abortion Industry. 

Pro-lifers will fight to stave off pro-abortion legislation until the next election cycle when we can anticipate restoring sanity.
