Vice President Joe Biden doesn’t want to impose on other faiths his Church’s judgment that abortion is immoral . . . but he approves of Obamacare which imposes abortion-inducing drug coverage on all Americans, including Catholics.
Debating congressman Paul Ryan at last night’s VP debate, Biden explained:
"With regard to abortion, I accept my Church’s position on abortion as … doctrine. Life begins at conception. That’s the Church’s judgment. I accept it in my personal life. But I refuse to impose it on equally devout Christians and Muslims and Jews. I just refuse to impose that on others, unlike my friend here, the congressman. I do not believe that we have a right to tell other people, women, that they can’t control their body. It’s a decision between them and their doctor in my view and the Supreme Court."
Biden doesn’t want to impose life on women, but he’s cool with imposing death on babies. And taxing Catholics as well as other devout Christians and Muslims and Jews to fund it.
Biden doesn’t want to get between women and their doctors, but he supports putting doctor’s scalpels and forceps in between women and their babies. And using our tax dollars to pay for it.
And then Biden lied about the HHS mandate which forces Catholic institutions such as hospitals and universities to pay for contraception, sterilization, and abortion-inducing drugs, all of which violate the precepts of the Catholic faith:
"With regard to the assault on the Catholic Church, let me make it absolutely clear. No religious institution—Catholic or otherwise, including Catholic social services, Georgetown hospital, Mercy hospital, any hospital—none has to either refer contraception, none has to pay for contraception, none has to be a vehicle to get contraception in any insurance policy they provide. That is a fact. That is a fact."
Biden’s “fact” is such a blatant lie that the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops issued a statement today calling him out on his “inaccurate statement of fact.”
Biden claims, “I’ve been a practicing Catholic my whole life.”
I’m not sure what Biden has been practicing for the last 70 years, but that certainly isn’t the Catholic faith.
