Biden “reluctantly” pro-abortion? Let’s get serious. This is nonsense.

By Dave Andrusko

If you’re looking for a man who chooses his words carefully and with precision, the last place you’re look is to the current occupant of the White House: pro-abortion President Joe Biden.

Of course, part of his imprecision is a function of age. There are times when you simply scratch your head: what IS he saying?

But on other occasions, you get the drift no matter how imprecise and seemingly callous Biden is. An example? Glad you asked.

“I’m a practicing Catholic,” he said at a fundraiser with about 100 donors on Tuesday. “I’m not big on abortion, but guess what? Roe vs. Wade got it right.”

“Practicing Catholic”? The most pro-abortion president in history a “practicing Catholic”?  The only “practicing” Biden does is finding new and creative ways to be sure as many unborn babies get dead as possible.

Biden “also criticized states that have passed laws restricting access to abortion,” according to Alex Gangitano of The Hill. “Over 20 states have passed such laws since the Supreme Court ending the roughly 50-year precedent set by Roe that guaranteed a right to an abortion.”

But Biden knows while he may not be “big” on abortion (whatever that means), he is first in the teeny weeny hearts of Big Abortion who are big on abortion. Writing for the Associated Press, Colleen Long and Zeke Miller observe

The leading voices on abortion rights were always going to endorse the Democratic president for reelection. But the heads of Planned Parenthood Action Fund, NARAL-Pro Choice America and Emily’s List say getting out early and loudly behind Biden and Harris is important on an issue that will animate voters.

“I am so proud of the bold actions that this administration has taken to protect patients and to protect providers to give them accurate information and to let them know they are not alone,” said Alexis McGill Johnson, president and chief executive of Planned Parenthood Action Fund.

At the federal level, CBS News’s Melissa Quinn writes

Mr. Biden has directed his administration to take steps to protect access to abortion care following the Supreme Court’s decision wiping away the constitutional right to abortion, including by making a commonly used abortion pill, mifepristone, easier to obtain and ensuring members of the military can access reproductive health care.

Of course that paragraph only scratches the surface of the Biden administration’s zealotry on abortion. And the president is just getting started.

Politico wrote this headline: “Biden, once uncomfortable around abortion debates, set to make it a central part of his reelection.”  Holly Otterbein and Myah Ward added, “But as 2024 election comes into focus, Biden is poised to run the most overtly abortion rights platform of any general election candidate in political history as he and his team navigate the first presidential cycle in the post-Roe era.”

What to say about how “uncomfortable” Biden supposedly is? Ed Morrissey writes

Has Biden ever been “uncomfortable” around abortion debates? Hardly. He’s been inconsistent and incoherent at times, but has shown no sign of “uncomfortable” at all. Here are just a few instances of Biden’s supposed reticence over the past year:

Followed by a long list of actions the Biden administration has taken to make sure the machinery of abortion runs smoothly.

What a guy.
