At a Democratic fund-raiser this week, Joe Biden incorrectly stated that a bill introduced in the House and Senate to protect babies from abortion at 15 weeks and beyond does not have exceptions for rape and incest, and that Catholic Church allows abortion in these circumstances.
Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement in reaction:
“Biden’s apparent confusion here reflects the current political strategy of the abortion-promoting Democrats: Scare the voters into thinking that voting for Republicans means a ban on abortions without any exceptions, even for the most scary and tragic circumstances.
“The Catholic Church, of course, never justifies the killing of an innocent person by abortion.
Father Pavone also called on voters to pay attention to the abortion extremism of Biden and the Democrats.
“The focus of pro-life voters right now should be to turn the tables and point out that a vote for Democrats is a vote to impose on the nation abortion without restriction until birth, throwing out the window parental involvement laws, clinic regulations, informed consent, and any limits on late-term abortion whatsoever. Ask the Democrat candidates if there’s a single unborn child they are willing to protect.”
