Biden’s Equality Plan: Deadly for Unborn Babies

By Parliamentary Network for Critical Issues

The Biden Administration has released its National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality which seeks to “protect the constitutional right to safe and legal abortion established in Roe v. Wade in the United States, while promoting access to sexual and reproductive health and rights both at home and abroad.”

In the introductory letter, President Biden and Vice-President Harris refer to the Strategy as part of the “noble American tradition” and write the lofty words: “America is unique among the nations of the world because we were built on an idea: that every one of us is equal in dignity and deserves to be treated equally.”

However, the words quickly ring hollow as they include “the fight for reproductive rights” in the list of achievements in “our tireless pursuit of greater equity for all.”

Biden and Harris claim that “all people have the opportunity to live up to their full potential, regardless of gender identity or other factors, is not only a moral imperative. It is a strategic imperative—a continuation of our national journey toward justice, opportunity, and equality set forth in our creation…”

Perhaps they forgot that the Declaration of Independence recognized “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights” and that the first of these rights is Life.

The promotion of the death of the most vulnerable children among us—those alive but not yet born—shows the hypocrisy of the Biden Administration’s claim that it is following a “tireless pursuit of greater equity for all”.

They present abortion as part of reproductive health care, third in the Strategy’s list of ten strategic priorities: “(3) protecting, improving, and expanding access to health care, including sexual and reproductive health care.”

The Strategy attacks the heartbeat law in Texas stating, “Most recently, Texas passed a state law that blatantly violates women’s constitutional rights, as recognized under Roe v. Wade and upheld as precedent for nearly five decades, thereby eviscerating access to abortion in our nation’s second largest state and threatening reproductive rights across the country. The Supreme Court is already poised this term to hear the greatest challenge to Roe in a generation, putting women’s fundamental rights on the line.”

The Biden Administration’s abortion extremism also includes, “Sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice in the United States are under grave attack”, and that they commit to using “all available levers to protect these rights, and we will work to codify the constitutional rights recognized under Roe v. Wade.”

The Strategy also seeks the repeal of the Hyde Amendment which prevents the use of taxpayer funds for abortion, abortion to be covered by insurance regardless of health care program, and sex education for children.

On the international side, Biden and Harris’s plan includes ensuring “better integration of sexual and reproductive health service provision in global contexts, including in humanitarian and post-conflict settings”, and “U.S. global leadership on sexual and reproductive rights and comprehensive sex education, in bilateral and multilateral for a and in efforts to advance universal health care coverage globally.”

The National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality is not only vehemently anti-unborn child but fails to mention the word “mother”, even once. It does, however, include the phrase “individuals who are pregnant, postpartum, or nursing.”
