‘Catholic’ Democrats Commit Abortion Idolatry

Biden, Pelosi, and Markey rail against SCOTUS’s decision not to block a Texas heartbeat law.

Joe Biden claims to be a Roman Catholic who is “guided by his faith.” Similarly, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has a long history of boasting about being a “devout Catholic.” And Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey likewise touts his Catholic faith by claiming that his “basic text for everything I do is the Sermon on Mount.” He added: “Blessed are the poor. That’s Medicaid. Blessed are the elderly. That’s Medicare. Blessed are the children. That’s Head Start.”

Besides being Catholics, all three are longtime leading Democrats. And despite their oft-voiced claims of being guided by their Catholic faith, their words and actions demonstrate just the opposite. The reality is they are truly devoted to their political idols.

Following the recent constitutionally correct decision by the U.S. Supreme Court not to grant emergency relief against Texas’s Heartbeat Act, therefore allowing the new law to go into effect, Biden, Pelosi, and Markey went ballistic in rushing to defend the Left’s most sacred cow: abortion.

Biden railed against the justices’ decision as “an unprecedented assault on a woman’s constitutional rights under Roe v. Wade, which has been the law of the land for almost 50 years.” Guided by his Catholic faith? Please. Conflating a lawless court decision like Roe v. Wade with law was bad enough, but not nearly as absurd as the blatantly false assertion that abortion is a constitutional right.

Remember in 2008 when Biden declared: “I’m prepared as a matter of faith to accept that life begins at the moment of conception.”

Remember in 2015 when Biden declared: “I’m prepared to accept that at the moment of conception there’s human life and being, but I’m not prepared to say that to other God-fearing, non-God-fearing people that have a different view.”

Biden now declares: “I respect those who believe life begins in the moment of conception — I respect that. Don’t agree but I respect that.”

Pelosi also played up the act, suggesting that SCOTUS’s failure to “protect” women means the House will consider legislation to “enshrine into law reproductive health care for all women across America.” The reality is that Texas’s law does more to genuinely protect the reproductive health of all women than does Pelosi’s concoction. Killing a preborn is not healthcare. The Party of Science™ knows this reality, but refuses to admit it because even scientific truth must be sacrificed in order to protect its holy sacrament of abortion.

As political observer Alexandra Desanctis says, “Far from being champions of science, defenders of abortion twist the facts of biology and push the limits of language to justify dehumanization.”

Markey may like to claim his basic biblical text for everything is the Sermon on the Mount, but the text doesn’t read “blessed only are birthed children.” He too shows his true religious commitments in his call for the elimination of the filibuster, arguing, “We have seen what the Republicans will do in ultra-conservative state legislatures across the country to quash the constitutional rights of Americans, and this ruling needs to be an urgent call to action for my Senate Democratic colleagues.”

The truth is Biden, Pelosi, Markey, and their Democrat colleagues worship at the altar of abortion rights. Everything else must be brought into submission to this primary issue. If protecting the lives of the most vulnerable and most innocent were important to these “Catholic” Democrats, then they would be praising the Court’s decision. Their words and actions show the opposite is the case. Political power, not preserving life, is what’s most important — be it in Afghanistan or in the womb.


Update: Travis County District Court Judge Maya Guerra Gamble blocked enforcement of the Texas law Friday, writing, “The Court finds that S.B. 8 creates a probable, irreparable, and imminent injury in the interim for which plaintiffs and their physicians, staff and patients throughout Texas have no adequate remedy at law if plaintiffs, their physicians, and staff are subjected to private enforcement lawsuits against them under S.B. 8.”
