Biden's COVID-19 Plan: Force Taxpayers To Pay For Abortions
Back in 1994, a worried Delaware taxpayer sent a message to his senator. "Please don't force me to pay for abortions against my conscience," he said.
Joe Biden sent an unambiguous response.
"I will continue to abide by the same principle that has guided me throughout my 21 years in the Senate: those of us who are opposed to abortion should not be compelled to pay for them," he wrote.
"As you may know," Biden continued, "I have consistently -- on no fewer than 50 occasions -- voted against federal funding of abortions."
"(T)he government," Biden said, "should not tell those with strong convictions against abortion, such as you and I, that we must pay for them."
Today, Biden is the most powerful man in the United States government -- and he is demanding that Americans "with strong convictions against abortion" must pay for them with their tax dollars.
This is the moral price Biden was willing to pay to become vice president and then president as the nominee of a party that will not tolerate leaders who insist on defending the innocent unborn.
When Biden ran for president in 2020, he made clear on his campaign website that he favored not only nationwide abortion on demand but also federal funding of it.
"Vice President Biden favors repealing the Hyde Amendment," his website said. This is the amendment Congress has habitually added to annual appropriations bills over more than four decades to prohibit funding of abortions except in cases of rape, incest or when the life of the mother is endangered.
"Biden will work to codify Roe v. Wade," said his website, "and his Justice Department will do everything in its power to stop the rash of state laws that so blatantly violate Roe v. Wade."
