Live Action Responds to the Inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris
Washington, D.C. – Today former Vice President Joe Biden was inaugurated as the 46th President of the United States. Biden’s running-mate, Kamala Harris, will serve as the first female Vice President of the United States.
The Biden administration has pledged to expand government-funded killing of preborn children and to upend long-held protections on life. President Biden and Vice President Harris advocate for taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand, plan to rescind the Mexico City Policy and abolish the Hyde Amendment, and seek to codify Roe v. Wade as federal law. The Biden/Harris administration also plans to restore federal funding for abortion goliath Planned Parenthood through Title X’s family planning program, reversing the Trump administration’s rule prohibiting Title X recipients from referring or providing abortions.
Live Action Founder and President, Lila Rose responds:
The policies advocated by this new administration will help kill innocent, vulnerable preborn children and completely ignore the reality of medical science. Science shows that a human being – with his or her own complete and unique set of DNA – is formed at the moment of fertilization. These human beings deserve equal protection under the law. Codifying Roe v. Wade, abolishing Hyde, and funding abortion with taxpayer dollars would almost immediately lead to more violence against children and harm to their mothers and families.
“In the face of the Biden administration’s radical attacks on human life, the pro-life movement will continue to work towards and demand full legal protections for preborn children. We cannot accept the daily death toll of over 2,300 babies killed by abortion. It is the abortion industry’s typical tactic to use political power in order to expand its business and prey on more children and families. As the Biden-Harris administration aligns itself with Big Abortion’s agenda of murder for profit, aiding sex abuse, and trafficking body parts, they should anticipate a relentless fight by those of us who demand that every human being, including the preborn child in the womb, be granted the right to life.
“We are prepared and determined to take on this battle, but I am also reminded of historic examples of good conquering evil — leaders humbling themselves when they are wrong and waking up to realize the humanity of every child. We’ve seen former abortionists like Dr. Anthony Levatino become pro-life. Our movement stands ready to welcome Biden and Harris into our fight to defend the vulnerable from abortion, should they finally acknowledge the injustice of abortion.
“We will wake up tomorrow morning and work to build a culture that reveres the dignity of every human life, just as we have every day under every administration since Roe v. Wade, regardless of the party elected.”
