President Biden is the most abortion-happy president in American history. He simply can’t stop talking about it. That he identifies as a Catholic makes him all the more contemptible.

Vice President Kamala Harris is so enthusiastic about abortion that she is embarking on a nationwide abortion “tour,” criss-crossing America on behalf of abortionists and the makers of mail-order death pills.

On January 22, the Biden administration announced that it is going all-out in its promotion of chemical abortion. They will not be enforcing existing law, and that is because they regard those laws to be too restrictive. This explains why Biden is resorting to an executive order. The goal is to increase access to chemical abortion.

The typical method of using chemicals to kill a baby in utero is for a pregnant woman to take mifepristone (RU-486), a pill that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved for use up to 10 weeks of pregnancy; no one knows how often it is used after 10 weeks.

But we do know about the condition of unborn babies at 10 weeks. That is when the baby’s heartbeat is detectable. It is when the baby’s brain and lungs are starting to form. It is when the baby already has a clearly identifiable human shape.

There are many side effects to this pill. They range from excessive bleeding to septic shock. According to the Charlotte Lozier Institute, chemical abortions have a complication rate four times that of surgical abortion. As many as one in five women will suffer a complication.

The constitutionality of relaxing restrictions on chemical abortions will soon be decided. On August 16, 2023, the Fifth Circuit ruled against the FDA. It said that “thousands of women, and as many as hundreds of thousands, have experienced serious adverse effects as a result of taking the drug, and required surgery or emergency care to treat those effects.” This ruling was appealed and the Supreme Court will render a decision in the spring.

On January 23, Biden spoke in Virginia about abortion rights, hailing his administration’s policies. Among those policies is the new directive from the Department of Health and Human Services that provides training health care workers about federal requirements in the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA). The 1986 law does not specifically mention abortion, but the administration nonetheless argues that “the required emergency care can, in some circumstances, include abortion care.”

EMTALA has never been used before to regulate abortion and nowhere in the law does it mention abortion. This is a novel ploy: The Biden administration wants to force hospitals—including Catholic ones—to perform abortions even if the states ban them. The legality of this, too, will be decided by the Supreme Court this term.

Our borders are being crashed in record numbers by illegal aliens. Inflation is hurting everyone, especially the poor. Violent criminals are being treated like the catch-and-release illegal migrants—they are back on the street before the cops complete the paperwork. Some of the schools are sexually engineering children and in many cases are enabling child abuse by encouraging the sexually confused to transition to the opposite sex.

And what is Biden obsessed with? Finding new ways to kill the unborn. This speaks volumes about the priorities of our abortion-happy Catholic president.
