First Lady Jill Biden brought her pro-abortion tour to Pennsylvania this past weekend in an effort to mobilize abortion extremists in the Keystone State.

To its credit, the local ABC-TV affiliate in Harrisburg reached out to the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation in advance of her appearance at Millersville University in Lancaster County.

It is important to note that Lancaster County is considered a bedrock of the pro-life movement in the Commonwealth. For years, county residents fought valiantly to stop an abortion facility from setting up shop within the county’s boundaries.

Sadly, in the past few years, Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion operation, opened a center in Lancaster as the abortion giant attempted to expand abortion in Pennsylvania.

In her appearance before “dozens” on the Millersville campus, Jill Biden stated, “We are the first generation to give our daughters fewer rights than we had.”

Such a statement discounts the fact that abortion actually eliminates daughters and granddaughters. It is the taking of an innocent, unrepeatable human life which can leave a mother grieving for years.

In my interview with the television station, I stated that I hoped the First Lady would have a chance to sit down with a woman who had had an abortion and who regretted it, so she could hear first-hand the pain and anguish that can come with losing a child.

But I also said a lot more which sadly did not make it onto the local news.

I noted that the First Lady’s party supports abortion up to the moment of birth, along with taxpayer funding of abortion. Both stands are out of step with the views of a majority of Americans, who view late-term abortion as egregious and tax funding of abortion appalling.

I also pointed out that abortion occurs more than 34,000 times each year in Pennsylvania, and more than a million times annually nationwide. I said that that was far too many, and then posed the question: How many abortions would the First Lady say were too many?

That question, along with many others, remains unanswered.
