Catholic Bishop Condemns Joe Biden on Abortion: Taking the Life of an Innocent Child is Never a Choice
President Biden and Vice President Harris have selected the continued legal killing of children in the womb as a top campaign issue in their reelection campaign. On the 51st anniversary of the Roe v Wade abortion decision Biden issued a statement declaring that he and Vice President Harris “are fighting to protect women’s reproductive freedom against Republicans officials’ dangerous, extreme, and out-of-touch agenda” and “continue to call on Congress to restore the protections of Roe in federal law once and for all.” But, Biden-Harris are the ones with an extreme abortion agenda that allows abortion until birth.
The Biden White House issued a ‘factsheet’ listing all of its many actions on abortion including that Vice President Harris was launching a nationwide tour promoting abortion. Harris said that this November the country needs “to elect a majority of people in the United States Congress who simply agree it’s not the government’s right to tell a woman what’s in her own best interest when she knows what’s in her own best interest and doesn’t need some person walking around with a flag pin to tell her what to do.”
She continued, “And Joe Biden has been very clear: When Congress puts back in place the rights that the Court took away, he will sign it into law. He will sign into law the protections of Roe v. Wade.”
The duo’s endless support for abortion, including during campaign stops and events with donors, has not gone unnoticed and unopposed. Bishop Michael Burbidge, chair the USCCB pro-life committee, issued a statement condemning Biden’s position on abortion after a campaign event in Manassas, VA located in the bishop’s diocese of Arlington.

Bishop Burbidge stated, “President Biden has made abortion the centerpiece of his campaign. At a rally in Manassas, VA, he advocated for codifying Roe v. Wade into law. It is incredibly devastating to know President Biden would place ‘choice’ over his sacred duty to protect life.”
“Despite what this administration claims, taking the life of an innocent child is never a ‘choice.’ Women who are facing unexpected or difficult pregnancies deserve assistance that affirms and supports life – not destroy it.
“Abortion remains the preeminent civil rights issue of our time, yet, just yesterday, the Biden administration announced renewed efforts to increase access to medically unsafe prescription abortion pills. This is clearly not about women’s health.
“The Diocese of Arlington and the entire pro-life movement will remain steadfast in ensuring parents facing unexpected or challenging pregnancies have the support they need to choose life for their unborn children.”
