President Biden created more outrage Tuesday with statements defending abortion in the wake of the leaked SCOTUS opinion draft which indicated the court’s intention to overturn Roe v. Wade.
“Roe says what all basic mainstream religions have historically concluded, that the existence of a human life and being is a question. Is it at the moment of conception? Is it six months? Is it six weeks? Is it quickening, like Aquinas argued?” Biden asked.
The self-identified Catholic continued: “So, the idea that we’re going to make a judgment that is going to say that no one can make the judgment to choose to abort a child based on a decision by the Supreme Court, I think goes way overboard.”
Breitbart senior editor-at-large Joel Pollak blasted Biden’s statement, tweeting, “Leaving aside the idiocy of this statement, this means codifying Roe means violating the First Amendment prohibition on the establishment of religion by Congress.”
Texas Right to Life Director of Media and Communication Kimberlyn Schwartz responded:
“The president would do well to check the beliefs of his own religion. Major religions across the globe, along with everyday Americans, believe that preborn children deserve protection and should not be subjected to cruel deaths through abortion. Codification of Roe involves the complete and total enshrinement of abortion with no restrictions until the moment of birth. This idea is fundamentally immoral and widely unpopular with the American people.”
“This man needs to be excommunicated from the Catholic Church,” tweeted Nevada Republican congressional candidate Carolina Serrano.
Former Rep. Nan Haywork, R-N.Y., tweeted, “This doesn’t comport with the doctrine of the Church to which Biden so ostentatiously turns when he wants to look sympathetic. It does comport with his having no principles whatsoever beyond what’s politically expedient.”
“Every defense of abortion is incoherent, but this one somehow manages to stand out,” tweeted The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh.
