Biden, Harris Harp On Abortion Amid Lackluster Re-Election Campaign

Since a draft opinion leaked in May 2022 that showed the U.S. Supreme Court intended to overturn the federal abortion rights established in the Roe v. Wade decision, leftists have been harping incessantly on the issue in hopes of rallying more voters behind the Democratic Party.

With President Joe Biden polling behind likely GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump in key battleground states nationwide, he is ramping up his rhetoric against conservatives who advocate for the rights of the unborn.

In keeping with his party’s tradition of using euphemisms instead of directly advocating for more abortions, Biden’s recent remarks on the matter emphasized the “freedom,” “privacy” and “right to choose” that women have supposedly lost as a result of the Supreme Court’s decision.

“That cruel reality has resulted in extreme Republicans who for years have made it their mission to end the Roe v. Wade decision,” he fumed in a speech that coincided with the 51st anniversary of the landmark ruling.

Referencing the limitations put in place in certain states, Biden claimed that the “extreme right is trying to limit all women in America.”

Further evidence that Biden’s re-election hopes are resting firmly on fear-mongering about abortion can be found in Vice President Kamala Harris’ recent speeches on the subject.

In a recent stop on the partisan speaking junket she has dubbed the “Fight for Reproductive Freedoms” tour, she echoed the leftist talking point that women are not free without the right to end their pregnancies on demand.

“Freedom is not to be given,” Harris declared, omitting any reference to the freedom of unborn children to survive nine months in the womb. “It is not to be bestowed. It is ours by right — by right. And that includes the freedom to make decisions about one’s own body, not the government telling you what to do.”

Trump, of course, is on the other side of the debate and has cited the overturned Roe decision as a reason for conservatives to support his campaign for a second term.

“Nobody else was going to get that done but me,” he recently said in reference to the conservative justices he nominated during his first term. “And we did it, and we did something that was a miracle.”
