Biden’s priority is not to empower and enable women across the country, his priority is appeasing the radical demands of his base.
In his Agenda for Women released Monday, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden promised “to restore domestic and overseas funding to the abortion industry.”President Trump and his administration have made a strong effort not to finance abortions with federal money.
Biden dedicated one section of his Agenda for Women to “Reproductive Health,” which is generally a reference to abortion. The former vice president under President Barack Obama said he “will work to codify Roe v. Wade, and his Justice Department will do everything in its power to stop the rash of state laws that so blatantly violate Roe v. Wade,” according to Life Site.

Biden said he wanted to repeal the Hyde Amendment by reissuing “guidance specifying that states cannot refuse Medicaid funding for Planned Parenthood and other providers and reverse the Trump Administration’s rule preventing these organizations from obtaining Title X funds.”
Planned Parenthood despicably provides more than 345,000 abortions annually, according to its most recent report. Additionally, the organization handed out more than 593,000 emergency contraception kits, commonly known as the morning-after pill, which can also cause abortions in many cases.
Biden’s plan would, supposedly, “enable women to abort their babies using taxpayer money.” What a shame!
In fact, Joe Biden had supported the Hyde Amendment for many years, before reversing his position early during his campaign for president in 2019.
In his Agenda for Women, Biden declared his intent to restore Obamacare’s contraception mandate “that existed before the Hobby Lobby ruling: providing an exemption for houses of worship and an accommodation for nonprofit organizations with religious missions. The accommodation will allow women at these organizations to access contraceptive coverage, not through their employer-provided plan, but instead through their insurance company or a third-party administrator.”
Pro-life organizations are all-in for Trump, with the Susan B. Anthony (SBA) List spending $52 million on re-election efforts this year.

SBA List’s Mallory Quigley said in January that the “stakes of this election could not be higher. Democratic contenders for president are lining up to support abortion on demand, and even infanticide, and declaring war on even the most modest pro-life policies.”
She credited Trump as the “most pro-life president in our nation’s history.” Promising that pro-life activists will fan out in support of pro-life candidates, Quigley said polling and the group’s on-the-ground experience show that “Democrats’ abortion radicalism is a liability for them at the ballot box.”
