For years, Joe Biden agreed that “those with strong convictions against abortion” should not have their tax dollars put towards funding abortions. He even claimed that he voted against the federal funding of abortions “on no fewer than 50 occasions.”
However, now that he is the the most powerful person in the United States, he is demanding exactly the opposite. When Biden campaigned in 2020, he made it very clear that he not only favored that abortion be legalized nationwide, but also demanded federal funding for it.
His campaign website reads “Biden favors repealing the Hyde Amendment.” The amendment is a longstanding tradition of Congress, tacked-on to their annual appropriation bills for more than 40 years to prohibit the funding of abortions, except for rare cases of rape, incest or direct threat to the mother’s life.
Without the Hyde amendment, over $414 billion in taxpayer money could be used to fund elective abortions. Biden has promised to “Restore federal funding for Planned Parenthood,” the organization which performed 354,871 abortions in 2019 alone.
When White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked about the Hyde Amendment and whether it would apply to the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, she responded by saying that the President’s stance on the Hyde Amendment was “well known.” She added that “I don’t think I have anything new for you.”
When pressed about whether or not the stimulus money would be used for abortions, Psaki responded, “Three-quarters of the public supports the [bill]… I think that answers your question.”
Biden’s COVID-19 stimulus bill will in fact be funding abortions with billions of dollars worth of blood money.
Biden, the country’s second Catholic president, is now preparing to sign a bill that defies the will of the American people, requiring that their hard-earned tax dollars be used to fund the murder of children.
