On Thursday, National Right to Life and National Right to Life News Today extensively discussed pro-abortion President Joe Biden’s executive orders re-opening the flow of tax dollars to pay for abortion at home—by changing the requirements to receive Title X Family Planning dollars– and aboard—by rescinding the Mexico City Policy.
The reversals from the pro-life policies of President Donald Trump came on the 8th day of the Biden/Kamala Harris administration and one day before the virtual March for Life.
Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann of Kansas City in Kansas, and chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities , and Bishop David J. Malloy of Rockford, and chairman of the Committee on International Justice and Peace, responded with a strong condemnation:
“It is grievous that one of President Biden’s first official acts actively promotes the destruction of human lives in developing nations. This Executive Order is antithetical to reason, violates human dignity, and is incompatible with Catholic teaching. We and our brother bishops strongly oppose this action. We urge the President to use his office for good, prioritizing the most vulnerable, including unborn children. As the largest non-government health care provider in the world, the Catholic Church stands ready to work with him and his administration to promote global women’s health in a manner that furthers integral human development, safeguarding innate human rights and the dignity of every human life, beginning in the womb. To serve our brothers and sisters with respect, it is imperative that care begin with ensuring that the unborn are free from violence, recognizing every person as a child of God. We hope the new administration will work with us to meet these significant needs.”
