President Biden goes to Catholicism in the GOP.
The second Roman Catholic president criticized Senator Lindsey Graham (RSC )’s proposed national ab*rtion ban as a heartless att*ck on women’s rights to decide whether or not to give birth to a child.
“Think about what these guys are talking about,” Biden said during a Democratic fundraiser in New York. “No exceptions – rape, incest – no exceptions, no matter what age.”
Biden said Graham’s law prohibiting ab*rtion after 15 months of pregnancy goes beyond what the Catholic Church says on the subject, although some prelates may plead for others.
“I just happen to be a practicing Catholic,” said Biden. “My church doesn’t even make that argument right now.”
Biden has promised that Graham’s bill will not become law, even if it requires a presidential veto.
“It may or may not pass, I’m going to veto,” Biden said. “It will not happen.”
It is unclear what Biden was referring to when he argued that Church principles would not support Graham’s restrictive Act.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church says that a fetus has a right to a person “from the very first moment of its existence,” a declaration that is usually interpreted as meaning from conception.
But the views of most American Catholic Church members differ greatly. Stunning 56% of practicing Catholics believe that most of the ab*rtion should be legalpolls show.
The president and his democratic allies emphasize the right to ab*rtion as a key issue in the upcoming mid-term elections.
Since the Supreme Court overturned the landmark Roe v Wade decision that legalized ab*rtion in the spring, Democrats have generated a wave of anger among women and opt-out supporters, including independent and even some moderate Republicans.
Democrats have had a streak of wins and better-than-expected special election appearances, including the unhappy victory of international Pat Ryan (DY) in the Hudson Valley swing district, once owned by Lieutenant Governor Antonio Delgado.
Republicans hoped voters would focus on the alleged economic mistakes of the Biden administration.
But the GOP is mostly controlled by pro-life leaders like Graham who insist on pushing through unpopular ab*rtion restrictions, even if it costs a party at the ballot box.
