Sometimes I wonder why they let Biden go out and speak when he clearly doesn’t know what he’s talking about.
On Sunday night, Joe Biden contradicted himself when talking about abortion. Biden insisted that he’s not for “abortion on demand” – but that he’s for abortion in all three trimesters of a woman’s pregnancy.
In response, many users and outlets were flabbergasted by how little sense he made.
During his Las Vegas stop for his campaign, Biden began telling the audience about the negative impacts that would occur if former President Donald Trump were to gain the presidency again. Naturally, Biden spoke about Trump’s pro-life policies but ended up completely contradicting himself about his own stance on abortion.
“Trump is bragging about turning over another basic freedom,” Biden said at one point, “Roe v. Wade.” The pro-abort audience erupted in boos.
“If MAGA Republicans try to pass a national ban on a woman’s right to choose, I will veto it,” Biden insisted confidently.
A right to choose between ending the life of an innocent baby or allowing it the most basic human right? Yeah, that seems super Catholic of you Mr. President.
Then Biden stared intently towards the audience and promised that if he were elected, he’d “bring back Roe v. Wade.” Again, the audience cheered. I think that threw Biden off because in his next statement, he got all twisted around.
“I love how Trump is saying Biden is for abortion on demand. Not true. That’s not what Roe v. Wade said. It said the three trimesters,” Biden (somehow) confidently said.
Sir, if you want to allow abortion throughout all three trimesters of a three trimester long pregnancy, you do want abortion on demand. That, by definition, is the most “on demand” type allotment there is.
“Does this high IQed individual realize he just said he’s for abortion for 3 trimesters and there are in fact 3 trimesters a pregnancy…the jokes just write themselves,” a user on X wrote. “U can tell when he goes off script and when he reads teleprompter,” another added.
One user sarcastically added that Biden is “willing to restrict abortion in the fourth trimester,” and another user did the same while writing, “That’s nice of him – as long as it is before the 1st birthday he is cool with.”
For anyone to say that they support abortion during all three trimesters of pregnancy is completely and utterly barbaric. It’s sad that Biden, the supposed leader of the free world, fails to realize that freedom starts with having a chance at life. No society is truly free if we continue to insist that killing babies is somehow morally acceptable.
