Biden presidency = death of pro-life laws and millions more babies

Planned Parenthood endorses BidenAn organization that supports pro-life candidates predicts their movement would suffer a severe blow under a Joe Biden presidency.

That's the stance of the Susan B. Anthony List. Spokeswoman Prudence Robertson tells OneNewsNow that the first clue is the fact that Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion chain, has endorsed Joe Biden's candidacy. Planned Parenthood vows it will spend $45 million to get the former Democratic vice president elected. In fact, PP's acting president, Alexis McGill Johnson, told NPR "this is literally a life and death election" – and "we have to do everything we can to get him [Trump] out of office."

Robertson says the endorsement was no surprise since Biden has been pandering to the abortion movement.

"And even before that, for nearly 50 years he supported the Hyde Amendment, which kept taxpayer funds out of abortion," the SBA List spokeswoman explains. "And now that he's running for president, he has flip-flopped on the Hyde Amendment and now advocates for late-term abortion on demand through the moment of birth paid for by taxpayer dollars."

Biden considers abortion to be "health care" – and has stated: "If I believe health care is a right, as I do, I can no longer support an amendment that makes that right dependent on someone's zip code."

The presumptive Democratic nominee has also vowed that, if elected, "I'm going to do everything in my power to expand access to quality, affordable health care, including reproductive health care. I'm proud to stand with Planned Parenthood in this fight."

OneNewsNow asked Robertson what pro-lifers can expect if Biden wins in November.

"We could expect for every pro-life law that protects unborn babies and their families to be completely stripped away," she responds. "And what's more, Biden has promised to codify Roe v. Wade and make it law, which would make it legal to kill unborn babies with no limits."

The pro-life leader contends that would be a disservice to the majority of voters – Democrat or Republican – who believe in common sense restrictions on abortions, especially during the second and third trimester.

Planned Parenthood acknowledges and touts Biden's stand on abortion access. "As president," says its endorsement page, "Biden would defend safe, legal access to abortion by establishing nationwide protections for abortion that would stand even if Roe v. Wade were overturned by the Supreme Court."
