Biden claims to oppose abortion on demand. Why does his administration push it?

“President Joe Biden recently irked his fellow liberals because, though he supports legal abortion, he has moral reservations about it.

At a fundraiser in New York City last week, Biden reminded the crowd that he personally dislikes abortion.

“I’m a practicing Catholic,” Biden said. “I don’t want abortion on demand, but I thought Roe v. Wade was right.”

It is a similar comment to one he made at a fundraiser in Chevy Chase, Maryland, last summer.

“I’m a practicing Catholic,” he said at the fundraiser. “I’m not big on abortion. But guess what? Roe v. Wade got it right.”

Biden prefaces his abortion stance with his faith because he knows his administration and the Democratic Party are complicit in the destruction of human life with their extreme abortion position.

Even with his poor mental competency, Biden understands there is something wrong with abortion, citing a faith that has consistently opposed abortion for 2,000 years. The Pope has even likened the practice to hiring a hitman. Religion aside, science tells us that human life begins at conception, even if those children are tiny and less developed.

Biden even admitted that life begins at conception to America in 2015.

“I’m prepared to accept that at the moment of conception, there’s human life and being, but I’m not prepared to say that to other God-fearing, non-God-fearing people that have a different view,” Biden told the magazine.

Biden’s understanding that abortion kills a human being has not helped protect preborn children during his presidency. His administration remains radically pro-abortion. It refuses to say if it supports a gestational limit on abortion, even in the third trimester. The administration also wanted to repeal the Hyde Amendment, which bars federal dollars from paying for elective abortions. Plus, the administration funds the travel expenses of women in the military who seek abortions.

The Biden administration is not one that supports “safe, legal, and rare abortion,” nor is it seeking pragmatic ways to reduce demand for the life-ending practice. Instead, it has Vice President Kamala Harris touring the country, touting her abortion extremism and attacking those who want to protect unborn children.

Biden has abandoned his principles on this matter to go along with the Democrats’ extreme agenda. He supported the Hyde Amendment as recently as 2019 before dumping it during his 2020 presidential campaign.

This type of spineless politicking explains why Biden continually fails this country. He repeatedly puts the interests of special interest groups before those of the public.

Biden and his administration have pursued policies that hurt the public. He even does it when he knows his actions are morally wrong. No wonder people dislike him.
