Biden Pins His Hopes on Abortion

Democrats are desperate to make the election a referendum on a single issue: abortion. 

Don’t take my word for it. Their media mouthpieces have left no doubt that this is not only Biden’s plan—it’s his only plan.

Consider these headlines:

Truth be told, the Democrats have no choice but to run on the abortion issue because it’s all they’ve got. What else could they possibly run on?

The border is broken, inflation is out of control, the economy is dismal, and the world is on the cusp of World War III—all in direct consequence of Joe Biden’s failed policies. It stands to reason that Biden wants to change the subject to abortion, for this the only issue on which he stands a chance of beating Trump.

That’s why Kamala Harris on March 14th became the first vice president in American history to hold a campaign event at a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic, where she celebrated its deadly work with her usual ghastly cackle. National Democratic candidates in previous election cycles had the decency to keep their distance from these killing fields, even as they were eagerly funded them.

The visit to the Arizona clinic was staged after the state’s Supreme Court decision reinstated an 1864 law banning all abortions except to save the life of the mother.

“Donald Trump is the architect of this health care crisis,” she alleged, ignoring the fact that pregnancy is not a disease and abortion is not health care.

Abortion advocates are still seething that Roe v. Wade, perhaps the rawest act of judicial tyranny in American history, was overturned on June 14, 2022. The Dobbs decision announced on that day consigned Roe to the dustbin of judicial history, saving an estimated 89,000 preborn babies in the first year alone.

Nor have they forgotten that it was Donald Trump who, by putting Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett on the Supreme Court, made this—the greatest pro-life victory in the last half century—possible.

But apparently this has slipped the minds of some pro-life leaders and commentators. Why else would they be piling on Donald Trump every time the abortion issue comes up, breathing life back into Biden’s struggling campaign every time they do so?

To make matters worse, some are even now demanding—in the heat of the presidential campaign—that Trump imperil his presidential bid by endorsing national-level legislation banning some abortions. His failure to do so has even led one Catholic commentator, Ranesh Ponnuru, to accuse him—in the pages of the Washington Post, no less—of “indifference to the pro-life cause.”

It is hard to overstate what a gift such a commitment by Trump would be to Joe Biden. It would take the spotlight off Biden’s numerous failures and put it on the one area where his support is the strongest. It would reinvigorate his campaign and encourage his donors to get out their checkbooks. 

Trump understands this, which is why he continues to stress that the abortion question should be left to the 50 states to decide. When the abortion issue arises, he stresses, it should always be seized upon as an opportunity to underline how “radical” the Democrats’ position is.

“It must be remembered that the Democrats are the radical ones on this issue,” Trump said in his now-famous April 8 video. “They support abortion not only up to, but beyond, the ninth month,” he said. Then, using some of his strongest language to date, he went on to compare late-term and near-birth abortions to “executions.”

That doesn’t sound like indifference to me.

Trump has made is clear over the past eight years that he wants to build a culture of strong families, one that respects life, and one that is welcoming of children.

Biden, on the other hand, is an abortion zealot who:

  • wants to send abortion pills to every teenage girl in America.
  • wants to promote abortion—and every other imaginable sexual practice—to every country and people around the globe.
  • wants to continue to fund the biggest killing machine in American history, Planned Parenthood, responsible to terminating the lives of hundreds of thousands of unborn Americans each year.
  • wants to do all this with your money. 

The contrast between the two candidates couldn’t be starker.

If pro-lifers are smart, they will let Trump make the election about the broken border, the faltering economy, and the increasingly dangerous world that Biden has created for us and our children. Let the man play to his strengths.

Then, when he is back in the Oval Office, we can go on the offensive, pushing to defund Planned Parenthood and other U.S. abortion providers.

This is the right pro-life counterstrategy. Defunding Planned Parenthood would immediately reduce both the number of abortions and the political clout of the abortion movement.

The pro-life movement would then be able to compete with the pro-abortion movement on a more level playing field in protecting the unborn at the state level, while working to create a culture of life in the United States as a whole, with the ultimate end of protecting life from conception.

The fact is, only one of our presidential candidates and only one of our political parties is pro-life. And if we don’t get behind the one in the upcoming election, we may very well lose the other as well, politicians being notoriously fickle creatures.

Then who will speak for the babies? Certainly not the man and the party that want abortion on demand up to birth and beyond. 

He wants them dead. And many of you as well, you useless carbon emitters.
