Senator Joseph Biden (creepy Uncle Joe) went over to the dark side on Thursday.
After years of supporting the Hyde Amendment which prohibits the use of federal funds to pay for abortion, Senator Biden, a professed Roman Catholic gave in to the pressure from NARAL and the abortionists to announce that he now supports the use of federal funds to pay for abortions and he intends to include this in his overall healthcare plan to be announced next week.
Senator Biden was the last holdout among the Democratic Presidential Candidates opposing federal funding for abortion. His decision to turncoat and run means that Henry Hewes is the only Democratic candidate left who opposes federal funding for abortions. Every other announced candidate vehemently supports the use of federal funds for abortions and supports compelling all healthcare plans to include funding for abortions.
Pope John Paul’s encyclical on life and the position of the American Roman Catholic Bishops both state unequivocally that any legislator who supports or votes for government funding for abortion is complicit in the act of murder and cannot be in a state of grace. The seriousness of this craven decision by Senator Biden puts him clearly on the side of the “baby killers” and makes a joke of his so-called “moderate position.”
The entire Democratic field with the exception of Henry Hewes is now campaigning for the Presidency standing on a mountain of dead babies. Over 60 million children have been killed since Roe v. Wade was first forced upon the nation by nine (9) unelected judges in 1973. Over 3,000 babies will die today as part of this moral outrage and 20,000 babies will die this week.
The fundamental basis of the Pro-Life Movement is that every baby from the point of conception on is a human being and requires protection from our government, society and civilization. This willingness to protect the lives and rights of other human beings is the central pillar of the very civilization that makes us different from animals. Every single civilization in the world has traditionally advocated the protection of all persons. We are required as a civilization to put ourselves at risk in order to protect the lives of every single unborn child. Whether or not a child is created through rape or incest, has a discernable heartbeat, is damaged or unwanted is totally irrelevant.
