How is it possible, for a man who calls himself a Roman Catholic, to support ending the lives of innocent unborn babies in the womb that have a heartbeat and can feel pain? How can a man who says he is “personally” against abortion, support the 1973 Roe vs Wade Supreme Court ruling that has ended the lives of 40 million American babies?
On Jan. 20, 2021 Joseph R. Biden, Jr. was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States. Prior to the swearing in ceremony, Mr. Biden attended Mass at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Washington, DC, a church that is home to the absolute protection of the unborn. Unfortunately, the new President supports abortion rights, and even supports ending the Hyde Amendment, which would allow federal funding of abortion procedures. President Biden says he is personally against abortion, but at the same time, he is ushering in the most radical pro-abortion policy in the nation’s history.

How can a man who says he is “personally” against abortion, support the 1973 Roe vs Wade Supreme Court ruling that has ended the lives of 40 million American babies?
The answer is simple, and can be seen in the words written by the Apostle Paul to the church in Colossae, and that is President Biden is “captive to philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.” (Colossians 2:8)
Mr. President, hear the Word of God on Life:
It was King David who wrote in Psalm 139, “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made?”
It was the Prophet Jeremiah who spoke for God, saying, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
It says in the Book of Job, “Did not he who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same one form us both within our mothers?”
Finally, in the New Testament, Jesus gave all who call themselves Christians the most basic rule for faith and practice called the Golden Rule, “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” (Matt. 7:12) This foundational text is the cornerstone of civilized society. How can the President tell any expectant mother that it is consistent with the Golden Rule to abort her innocent unborn child?
How can a practicing Catholic support laws that allow a woman, who is carrying life within her body, not to preserve the same life that was granted unto her?
Mr. President, I know you partook of the Lord’s Supper yesterday and you examined your heart about any sin you may be harboring; please, Mr. President, repent and change your position from “death” to “life,” for you too were known by God before He knit you together in your mother’s womb and you know in your heart that God is calling you to lead by protecting the weakest and most vulnerable of all.
May it be so, in Christ’s Holy Name! Amen and amen!
