National Right to Life’s Response to Last Night’s Debate

by | Jun 28, 2024

WASHINGTON — Last night, as the leading candidates for president squared off in the presidential debate, the abortion issue took front and center in the first half hour.

President Biden’s record clearly shows his entrenched support of unlimited abortion and tonight’s debate shows that Joe Biden is willing to engage in fearmongering and misinformation to campaign on the issue.

“President Biden has made unlimited abortion a cornerstone issue of his administration,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “Tonight’s debate proves once again that Joe Biden’s dogged promotion of abortion supersedes accuracy or facts.”

President Biden supports the use of taxpayer dollars to fund abortions and has used numerous legally fraught administrative actions to push abortion into pro-life states. He has called for the elimination of the Hyde Amendment, which prevents federal funds from being used to pay for abortions in many federal programs. President Biden has pledged to sign the “Women’s Health Protection Act,” a bill that would enshrine unlimited abortion until birth in federal law and do away with virtually all existing protections for unborn children and their mothers on both the federal and state levels, including parental involvement laws.

“Once again, Joe Biden tried to minimize the scope of Roe v. Wade which allowed abortions up until birth,” said Tobias. “In contrast, President Trump commended the U.S Supreme Court decision in Dobbs which returned the abortion issue to the people through their elected representatives.”

National Right to Life’s report Checking the Fact Checkers: Abortions Until Birth addresses the fact that abortions late in pregnancy do occur.
