Following the unprecedented SCOTUS leak of a draft opinion overruling two historic pro-abortion decisions by the court, President Biden has demonstrated a lack of sound reasoning in the pro-abortion argument.
The draft of a court opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito, which would overrule Roe v. Wade and the 1992 Planned Parenthood v. Casey decision, was leaked to Politico on Monday and shared with the public. In response to the potential ruling, President Biden released a statement saying, “I believe that a woman’s right to choose is fundamental. Roe has been the law of the land for almost fifty years, and basic fairness and the stability of our law demand that it not be overturned.”

The president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Albert Mohler, pointed out in his podcast The Briefing that Biden’s comment about women having the right to “abort a child” as he boarded Air Force One was the president accidentally speaking the truth because abortion is “the termination of unborn human life and…it is a heinous sin.”
In response to Mohler’s comment on the hypocrisy of Biden and the Left in their arguments for abortion, a reporter asked White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki what she thought about the claim that “his administration [does] not trust the public in various areas to have the right to determine whether or not abortion should be legal in that area or not,” to which Psaki replied that the president believes abortion should remain a federal law as it has been for the past 50 years and cited a Fox News poll from a month ago reporting 63% of Americans want Roe to stand. That same survey found the majority of Americans disapprove of the president, vice president, and the administration.
The president continued to contradict his stance on abortion by stating, “Roe says what all basic mainstream religions have historically included – that the existence of a human life and being is a question.” However, the Catholic and Christian views are that human life begins at conception, when the egg is fertilized by the sperm. President Biden claims to be a practicing Catholic.
Kimberlyn Schwartz with Texas Right for Life responded to the president’s comment by saying, “Major religions across the globe, along with everyday Americans, believe that preborn children deserve protection and should not be subjected to cruel deaths through abortion. Codification of Roe involves the complete and total enshrinement of abortion with no restrictions until the moment of birth. This idea is fundamentally immoral and widely unpopular with the American people.”
Similarly, in his attempt to defend the right to abortion, President Biden recalled his opposition to Judge Robert Bork’s nomination to the Supreme Court in 1987, explaining that Bork believed the only reason someone has inherent rights are because the government has given them to you. Biden commented, “I believe I have the rights that I have, not because the government gave it to me, which you believe, but because I’m just a child of God; I exist.”
Biden says there are “rights I have, not because the government gave them to be, but just because I’m a child of God, [because] I exist.” He makes this argument to support the right to abort unborn children of God which exist.pic.twitter.com/79XL9afmHU

While trying to defend the right to abort unborn babies, Biden actually defends the pro-life position, which is that our value is in being image bearers of the God who created us and not based on any government institutions.
