Joe Biden promised to force states to legalize abortions through all nine months of pregnancy again Friday if Democrats win two more seats in the U.S. Senate in November.
CNBC reports the Democrat president made the remark in a speech to the National Education Association, a teacher’s union, in Washington, D.C.
“If you give me two more senators in the United States Senate, I promise you, I promise you, we’re going to codify Roe and once again make Roe the law of the land,” Biden said.
The president urged women especially to vote for pro-abortion Democrats in November, assuming falsely that most women support his extreme pro-abortion agenda.
“The power to get things done is in the hands of the American people, especially the women out there,” Biden said. “I don’t think the MAGA Republicans have a clue about the power of American women. Let me tell you something: They’re about to find out.”
Biden also promised that, if Republicans regain control of Congress in November, he will veto pro-life legislation that reaches his desk, including a 15-week abortion ban, according to the report.
Last week, Republicans introduced the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, sponsored by U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, to protect unborn babies by banning abortions nation-wide after 15 weeks of pregnancy. Exceptions would be allowed in cases of rape, incest or risks to the mother’s life.
Polls consistently show strong public support for such legislation, and most countries across the world ban abortions after 15 weeks. But Biden and Democrat leaders have been attacking it as extreme.
In contrast, the bill that Biden wants to pass to “codify Roe” actually is very extreme. Nicknamed the Abortion Without Limits Up to Birth Act, the legislation would go further than Roe by forcing states to legalize the killing of unborn babies in abortions for basically any reason through all nine months of pregnancy.
The bill, which Democrats named the Women’s Health Protection Act, also would end bans on sex-selection abortions and taxpayer-funded abortions as well as laws that protect women and girls, including parental consent for minors and informed consent laws that ensure mothers receive facts about abortion risks and their unborn baby’s development before going through with an abortion.
Earlier this year, the pro-abortion bill passed the U.S. House with near-unanimous support from Democrats, but Republicans blocked it in the U.S. Senate.
“That same abortion bill — the one almost all Democrats are promising to make law in 2023 if they get the chance — would also gut conscience laws that protect health-care workers, strike down parental-consent abortion laws, and override some state laws banning partial-birth abortion,” according to National Review.
Americans – including many Democrat voters – support legal protections for unborn babies. Polls show strong public opposition to taxpayer funding for abortions and late-term abortions, and support for laws that protect unborn babies from abortion after the first trimester or once their heart begins to beat. Americans overwhelmingly support parental consent for minors, too.
A 2022 Marist poll found that just 36 percent of Americans believe abortions should be legal without any restrictions. Additionally, 73 percent oppose using tax dollars to fund abortions.
Similarly, a 2021 Associated Press poll found that 65 percent believe second-trimester abortions should be illegal and 80 percent believe they should be illegal in the third trimester.
Biden has become the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history. Last year, his administration began allowing abortion drugs to be sold through the mail without a doctor’s visit. Biden also wants to get rid of the Hyde Amendment and force taxpayers to pay for elective abortions, and force VA hospitals and emergency rooms to abort unborn babies.
