Planned Parenthood’s New Best Friend: Joe Biden
WASHINGTON—The following statement can be attributed to Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life:
Planned Parenthood’s new best friend is Joe Biden who supports abortion on demand and taxpayer funding for abortion.
In his career as a U.S. Senator, Joe Biden voted for the pro-life Hyde Amendment. However, as the more extreme elements of the Democrat Party took control, Biden flip-flopped last year. His endorsement today by the Parenthood Action Fund is the result of his mental gymnastics and desire for political gain. Planned Parenthood performed 345,672 abortions in 2018 continuing its role as the nation’s single largest abortion provider. Planned Parenthood and their pro-abortion allies repeatedly scorn any restrictions on abortion or any protective legislation for women and their unborn children. The Democrat Party and its presumptive presidential nominee, former vice president Joe Biden, have kowtowed to this radicalism.
Planned Parenthood has even gone so far as to trample on the rights of conscience, filing an amicus brief opposing the Little Sisters of the Poor in their case before the U.S. Supreme Court.
Joe Biden has embraced Planned Parenthood’s zeal for abortion on demand, at any time, for any reason—and funded by taxpayers.
President Trump and his administration have made a commitment to protect all innocent human life. The stark contrast between Joe Biden and President Trump could not be greater. Planned Parenthood has characterized this election as “a life and death election.” On this we can agree. If Joe Biden wins in November, more babies and more babies will die.
Founded in 1968, the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the federation of 50 state right-to-life affiliates and more than 3,000 local chapters, is the nation's oldest and largest grassroots pro-life organization. Recognized as the flagship of the pro-life movement, NRLC works through legislation and education to protect innocent human life from abortion, infanticide, assisted suicide and euthanasia.
