The once-moderate Joe Biden has become decidedly progressive since entering the White House. A senator previously praised for his ability to work with both parties has seemingly gone scorched-earth against Republicans in D.C.
Biden has called Trumper supporters, in particular, threats to democracy. Many have warned such divisive rhetoric is not good for the country.
This week, Biden observed the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision struck down after 50 years. Millions of Americans marched for pro-life values at the same time. Biden took the opportunity to attack Republicans and make this claim about abortion.
From The Post Millennial:
Biden claimed that the right to an abortion is “founded on the idea of freedom” and cited the most rare cases of abortion, those that are medically necessary to save the mother’s life…
“That cruel reality,” Biden continued, “has resulted in extreme Republicans who for years have made it their mission to end the Roe v Wade decision. Since Roe was overturned and 21 states abortion bans are now in effect.” Biden routinely claims that Republicans who disagree with him on abortion, trans, and other issues like the Ukraine war are “extreme.”
While harping on about abortion access in the United States, Biden claimed that abortion is “founded on the idea of freedom.” He referred to the least common reason for abortions, protecting the life of the mother, to justify all forms of the practice.
Biden attacked states that have, in recent years, set limits on abortion. He accused pro-life Republicans—who represent millions of Americans—as “extreme” for wanting to end or greatly limit abortion in the United States. His administration has even attempted to undermine state laws, through lawsuits and other means.
This will no doubt generate harsh criticism against the president. Joe Biden has been quick to label Republicans who oppose his agenda as “extreme.” Instead of working with Republicans to reach compromises, Biden has demanded complete obedience to his policies.
Those who criticize or question his decisions, he calls “extreme,” “threats,” or worse. While accusing Trump of being a dictator, it appears Biden is acting like one himself.
Democrats tried to use abortion as a winning issue in the 2022 midterm elections. They will no doubt try that tactic against them in 2024. Biden has the worst approval ratings in modern presidential history. He has been blamed for many crises hurting the country.
Yet he will try to ignore all these problems by making abortion the central issue of the election. And that might help him secure a second term.
- Biden claimed that access to abortion is “founded on the idea of freedom.”
- The president accused pro-life Republicans of being “extreme,” a common attack he uses against his enemies.
- The Biden administration has fought states that have passed laws limiting abortion.
