FRC: Biden funding abortion 19 times higher than Obama levels

Biden signing executive ordersThe Family Research Council (FRC) revealed on President Joe Biden’s 100th day in office that he is making approximately half a trillion dollars available for abortions – nearly 20 times the level under former President Barack Obama.

The Washington, D.C.-based Christian nonprofit organization released its new resource, "Tracking the Biden Administration," to expose the attack the pro-abortion president has made of the pro-life gains made under former President Donald Trump.

Democrats’ Trojan Horse

Under the guise of Democrats’ $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package, FRC reports that Biden made $467.8 billion available for abortion and abortion businesses – including the world’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood.

Coming to an amount more than 19 times higher than the level set under Obama – who evangelist Dr. James Dobson dubbed as the “abortion president” in 2014 – this taxpayer-funded abortion move by Biden could crown the 78-year-old Democrat the new abortion president.

“By comparison, within President Obama's first 100 days, he had signed a stimulus bill that included $24.7 billion in subsidies for employer-sponsored plans that cover abortion,” FRC announced in a press release Thursday.

Many of the gains for the sanctity of human life made over the past four years have been reversed under Biden, who campaigned last year that he would be working with both sides of the aisle in a vow toward bipartisanship.

“These funds made available by the Biden administration expressly exclude existing prohibitions on abortion funding – including the Hyde amendment and Helms amendment,” FRC noted. “In his first 100 days, President Biden has also funded abortion and abortion businesses by delivering an additional $12.1 billion through executive actions.”

FRC President Tony Perkins stressed that Biden is pushing abortion to unprecedented levels – a move that many critics have noted goes against Catholic beliefs on abortion… while the president professes to be a practicing Catholic.

"On his 100th day in office, it's more than clear that President Biden has not only returned to the pro-abortion policies of the Obama administration and is eliminating many of the Trump administration's pro-life policies, but he has expanded abortion funding far beyond the level of any previous administration,” Perkins stated in the press release.

In essence, the former vice president is forcing millions of taxpaying Americans to pay for abortions against their sincerely held religious beliefs.

"In his 100-day sprint to the left, President Biden has forced taxpayers back into a partnership with the abortion industry – both at home and abroad, [and] he has made clear that he places no value on the inherent dignity of human life,” Perkins continued. “His actions deny the truth that every human life – born and unborn – possesses inherent dignity and deserves to be treated with respect.”

He ended by mentioning the rebuttal Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) had for Biden’s push for so-called “women’s reproductive rights” – a stance that flies in the face of Biden’s vow to be a president for all Americans.

"As Senator Tim Scott noted in his remarks [Wednesday] night after the Biden address, this is a president who has failed to find the common ground he promised,” Perkins concluded. “Instead, President Biden has prioritized spending taxpayer dollars on abortion – making Obama look moderate by comparison.”

As FRC’s director of Federal Affairs for Life and Human Dignity, Connor Semelsberger, pointed out, Biden swayed to the far left as president when it comes to abortion.

"The level of federal taxpayer funds made available to the abortion industry in President Biden's first 100 days is unprecedented,” Semelsberger impressed. “As a senator from Delaware, Joe Biden consistently supported key provisions like the Hyde and Helms amendments – which prohibit funding for abortion at home and abroad – but as president, Joe Biden signed a $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package that expressly excluded these longstanding provisions in key areas – despite members of both parties coming together to maintain abortion funding restrictions in the five COVID-19 relief packages signed by President Trump."

Not a surprise

Even though many Americans are surprised about Biden’s radical shift on abortion policies, he indicated that he would stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the world’s largest abortion provider nearly two years ago.

"As president, I’m going to do everything in my power to expand access to quality, affordable health care – including reproductive health care,” Biden stated in June 2019 while speaking at the Planned Parenthood Action 2020 Election Forum in Columbia, S.C., according to NBC News. “I'm proud to stand with Planned Parenthood in this fight."
