WATCH: Joe Biden Insults Reporter, Confirms He Supports No Limits on Abortion

(LifeNews) – During a brief exchange with journalists today outside the White House, Joe Biden insulted a reporter and confirmed he supports no limits on abortions.

Just days after a rally in which he pledged to sign a bill legalize abortions up to birth nationwide, reporters asked him whether he would support any limits on abortion. Biden insulted the reporter by assuming he had never read or had no understanding of the infamous Roe v. Wade decision that allow abortions on demand and told him to “get educated.”

Reporter: “Should there be any restrictions on abortion at all?”

Biden: “Yes. There should be.”

Reporter: “What should they be?”

Biden: “It’s Roe v. Wade. Read it, man. You’ll get educated.”


The Roe decision overturned abortion bans and allowed abortions up to birth nationwide — prohibiting states form banning abortions until after viability. This essentially means Biden supports abortion on demand up to birth without any limits because that’s what Roe allowed and what occurred in many blue states.

Meanwhile, Biden now wants the federal government to follow what private pro-abortion groups are doing — setting up funds to pay for abortions and abortion travel expenses for women who need to go to other states to have abortions because their home state protects unborn babies. He wants to supports the establishment of a federal fund to cover all abortion costs with tax dollars.

These new remarks come after Biden’s rally earlier this week where he said his number one domestic priority is signing a bill for abortions up to birth.

Biden urged Americans to elect more Democrats to Congress in November so that lawmakers can force states to legalize taxpayer-funded abortion on demand.

Speaking Tuesday to the Democratic National Committee in Washington, D.C., the president said a bill to “codify Roe v. Wade” is his top priority, and Congress needs more Democrats to pass it, Fox News reports. The bill actually would go beyond Roe by forcing states to legalize the killing of unborn babies in abortions for basically any reason up to birth.

“In these midterm elections, it is so critical to elect more Democratic Senators to the United States Senate and more Democrats to keep control of the House of Representatives,” Biden said. “If we do that, here’s the promise I make to you and the American people: The first bill I will send to the Congress will be to codify Roe v. Wade.”

Nicknamed the Abortion Without Limits Up to Birth Act, the legislation would force states to legalize the killing of unborn babies in abortions for basically any reason through all nine months of pregnancy.

The bill, which Democrats named the Women’s Health Protection Act, also would end bans on sex-selection abortions and taxpayer-funded abortions as well as parental consent for minors. It also would jeopardize legal protections for doctors and nurses who refuse to abort unborn babies.

The U.S. House passed the bill earlier this year under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi, but it narrowly failed in the Senate, which is split evenly down party lines.

Election experts predict Democrats will lose control of the U.S. House and possibly the Senate, too, in November. Americans are upset with Biden and Democrat lawmakers about their actions on the economy, crime, education and more, so Democrats are banking on the abortion issue to win votes in November.

“Vote! You’ve got to get out the vote,” Biden said Tuesday. “We can do this if we vote.”

The president attacked Republicans as “extreme” for wanting to protect unborn babies with a bill to ban most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, and promised to veto any pro-life legislation that reaches his desk.

“If Republicans get their way with a national ban, it won’t matter where you live in America,” Biden said, NBC News reports. “So let me be very clear: if such a bill were to pass in the next several years, I’ll veto it.”

Responding to the speech, Brian Burch, president of CatholicVote, said Biden’s abortion advocacy is appalling, especially as many families struggle with the rising cost of food, fuel and utilities.

“While Americans struggle with record inflation, the president of the United States has nothing to offer but a pledge to expand the right to violently destroy innocent unborn children – up until birth and for any reason,” Burch said. “We need Church leaders to step up and make clear that no Catholic can support candidates or policies that would make America one of the most extreme abortion nations in the world.”

Although Biden professes to be a devout Catholic, his actions have made him the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history. Last year, his administration began allowing abortion drugs to be sold through the mail without a doctor’s visit. Biden also wants to get rid of the Hyde Amendment and force taxpayers to pay for elective abortions, and force VA hospitals and emergency rooms to abort unborn babies.

Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life, warned that babies and women will suffer if Biden achieves his goals.

“Instead of supporting life-affirming programs and policies that help women and their unborn children, the Biden administration has poured its focus into promoting unlimited abortion, even late in pregnancy,” she said in response to his speech Tuesday.

At the same time, she said Biden and Democrat leaders have been vilifying the life-saving work that pro-life advocates do daily to help save unborn babies and support families in need.

Jeanne Mancini, president of March for Life, predicted that Biden’s attempt to swing voters won’t work.

“Ninety percent of Americans reject Biden’s view that abortion should be legal up until birth for any reason – paid for by taxpayers,” she said Tuesday. “Our country is facing significant challenges and looking for positive solutions, not more violence and death. It is time for Americans to hold pro-abortion politicians accountable.”

Polls consistently show that Americans – including many Democrat voters – support legal protections for unborn babies. Polls show strong public opposition to taxpayer funding for abortions and late-term abortions, and support for laws that protect unborn babies from abortion after the first trimester or once their heart begins to beat. Americans overwhelmingly support parental consent for minors, too.

A 2022 Marist poll found that just 36 percent of Americans believe abortions should be legal without any restrictions. Additionally, 73 percent oppose using tax dollars to fund abortions.

Similarly, a 2021 Associated Press poll found that 65 percent believe second-trimester abortions should be illegal and 80 percent believe they should be illegal in the third trimester.

Pontifical Academy for Life Defends Pro-Abortion WEF Appointee, says Pope Francis Nominated Her


(LifeSiteNews) — Pope Francis himself chose a pro-abortion economist for the Pontifical Academy for Life. 

In response to the outcry over the recent, highly controversial, appointment of  World Economic Forum-linked Mariana Mazzucato as an “Ordinary Academic,” the Pontifical Academy for Life (PAL) sent a statement to chosen journalists covering the Vatican to defend it. 

According to Catholic News Agency (CNA), the PAL statement confirmed that the pontiff himself had nominated the new members of the PAL: 

All Academics are chosen from among scientists and experts of absolute importance, as Pope Francis reiterated in the Letter ‘Humana Communitas’ of 2019 to the Pontifical Academy for Life. The nominations of the Ordinary Academics are made by the Pope. 

The statement also declared that people with “skills in various disciplines and from different contexts,” would contribute to a “fruitful interdisciplinary, intercultural and interreligious dialogue.” 

“This is why among the academics there are also non-Catholic people: two rabbis, a Shinto academician, Muslims, an Anglican theologian. The Pontifical Academy for Life is a study and research body. So the debate and dialogue take place between people of different backgrounds,” the statement said. 

Furthermore, the statement also communicated that the nominees, including Mazzucato, went through a selection process and no red flags were raised: 

… [B]efore being nominated, the names proposed or reported go through a procedure that foresees the consultation of the Apostolic Nuncio and the Episcopal Conference of the countries where the Academics live and work. It also happened in this case and there were no problems.

The press release also noted that the documents published by the PAL “are sent to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith [CDF] before being published.” 

Mazzucato is a self-described “atheist” and professor of economics at University College London (UCL). She is a speaker at the WEF – the globalist group behind the socialistanti-Christian Great Reset agenda – and also enthusiastically pro-abortion, in direct contradiction to the unchangeable teaching of the Catholic Church.  

In June, following the United States Supreme Court’s overturning of the landmark 1973 pro-abortion Roe v. Wade decision, Mazzucato tweeted “So good!” in response to a pro-abortion commentator making anti-Christian statements disparaging the Bible while condemning the court’s pro-life ruling. 

According to an article in the National Catholic Reporter, Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia told media that Mazzucato’s tweets may have been “pro-choice” but not “pro-abortion.” Paglia, the president of PAL, allegedly said regarding Mazzucato that “our vetting showed that in her scientific work she has never taken a position against life. You cannot judge the deepest convictions of a person by four tweets.” 

Paglia also reportedly claimed that while the Catholic Church is opposed to abortion, it recognizes that in some situations people of goodwill can support laws and public policy designed to reduce recourse to abortion while allowing the procedure in some cases. However, it is very clear in PAL founder St. John Paul II’s Evangelium Vitae that this is not an approval of the legalised killing.

It reads:

… A particular problem of conscience can arise in cases where a legislative vote would be decisive for the passage of a more restrictive law, aimed at limiting the number of authorized abortions, in place of a more permissive law already passed or ready to be voted on. Such cases are not infrequent. It is a fact that while in some parts of the world there continue to be campaigns to introduce laws favouring abortion, often supported by powerful international organizations, in other nations-particularly those which have already experienced the bitter fruits of such permissive legislation-there are growing signs of a rethinking in this matter. In a case like the one just mentioned, when it is not possible to overturn or completely abrogate a pro-abortion law, an elected official, whose absolute personal opposition to procured abortion was well known, could licitly support proposals aimed at limiting the harm done by such a law and at lessening its negative consequences at the level of general opinion and public morality. This does not in fact represent an illicit cooperation with an unjust law, but rather a legitimate and proper attempt to limit its evil aspects. (Evangelium Vitae, 73)

Support for abortion is clearly contrary to valuing life and the dignity of the human person as the Church Magisterium interprets it. The Catechism of the Catholic Church says that ”human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception. From the first moment of his existence, a human being must be recognized as having the rights of a person – among which is the inviolable right of every innocent being to life.” (CCC 2270) 

LifeSiteNews contacted the Pontifical Academy for Life to confirm if Paglia’s statements about Mazzucato’s pro-abortion stance are accurate but has not yet received a response.

Mazzucato’s appointment contradicts the PAL’s own statutes. Even though the statutes say that members can be of any religion, new Academicians need to “commit themselves to promoting and defending the principles regarding the value of life and the dignity of the human person, interpreted in a way consonant with the Church’s Magisterium.” 

More Than 1 Million People March in Mexico for Life, Women and Peace

Participants called for laws that would aid pregnant women facing difficult situations and policies to promote ‘peace and unity for all, especially within the family.’

(LifeSiteNews) — A nationwide march in defense of women and life was hosted October 9 across Mexico that included more than 1 million participants.

The organization leading the event, In Favor of Women and Life, promoted marches throughout the country to send “a message of hope in the face of the culture of discarding and death.”

“We must all unite and find the strength to trust others again, show solidarity again and always appreciate and defend life, with special sensitivity to women and the children they carry in their wombs,” the website states in a promotion of the march. “It is necessary to act in favor of women and life.”

Although many marches were held in different parts of the country, roughly 200,000 participants attended the march in Mexico City, according to Catholic News Agency (CNA). The march concluded at the Angel of Independence, a statue standing in the busy city to symbolize national independence. The event included a manifesto reading that outlined four courses of action to take to support women and the unborn.

Participants called for laws that would aid pregnant women facing difficult situations and policies to promote “peace and unity for all, especially within the family.” CNA also reported that the need for “mutual trust” was emphasized “so that we can live together in peace and harmony, without violence.” Another demand was for the protection of the unborn and children regardless of “the degree of development” or any “health conditions.”

The overarching goal of the In Favor of Women and Life, which is supported by more than a thousand groups in Mexico, is to “bring together the largest possible number of people in a national march in Mexico City to express our commitment to the dignity of the person, of women and the defense of life.”

Three specific goals are outlined on the group’s website, the first being an effort to “unite many people and groups that are active” and who are “in favor of human dignity, women and life, respecting the identity and action of each of them.”

Second, the group strives for continued promotion of pro-life and pro-woman efforts while “address[ing] the causes that lead us to think about abortion.” The third and final targeted goal is to “make society aware of the roots and complexity involved in the issue of abortion, through a broad, serious and deep reflection from all sectors.”

Mexico, which once had legislation making abortion illegal in all circumstances, has lessened its restrictions considerably over the past few years. In 2019, abortion was legal in cases of rape. However, a 2021 ruling declared that abortion on demand was no longer illegal. Since then, individual states have had the capacity to determine what limitations, if any, are put into place surrounding the practice of killing the unborn.

Tulsi Gabbard officially leaves Democratic Party, blasts ‘cowardly wokeness’ of leaders

(LifeSiteNews) — Former U.S. Representative for Hawaii and 2020 presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard announced Tuesday she is leaving the Democrat Party with a blistering attack on her former home, which has elicited excitement among her fans, skepticism among her detractors, and speculation as to her future political ambitions.

“I can no longer remain in today’s Democratic Party that is under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers who are driven by cowardly wokeness, who divide us by racializing every issue and stoking anti-white racism, who actively work to undermine our God-given freedoms enshrined in our Constitution, are hostile to people of faith and spirituality, who demonize the police but protect criminals at the expense of law-abiding Americans, who believe in open borders, weaponize the national security state to go after political opponents, and above all, are dragging us ever closer to nuclear war,” Gabbard declared in a social media post launching her new web show:

A vocal critic of her party, Gabbard has earned the affection of some conservatives for her independence from Democrat orthodoxy, including on issues such as third-trimester abortionswomen’s sportssocial media censorship, and transitioning minors.

She is not a centrist, however; she voted in lockstep with the abortion and LGBT lobbies for most of her House tenure, advocated codifying abortion “rights” in federal law prior to the third trimester, favors decriminalizing prostitution, and endorsed socialist Bernie Sanders, arguably the furthest-left option on all the domestic policy issues her statement mentions, for president in 2016.

As indicted by her Tuesday statement’s references to “warmongers” and the ‘national security state,” a key part of Gabbard’s right-of-center appeal stems from her common ground with isolationist and anti-interventionist sentiments that have long dominated the libertarian movement and for years have grown in popularity among more populist factions of conservatism.

Many embraced Gabbard’s declaration unconditionally:

Others counseled wariness, however:

Gabbard’s name has been floated as a potential future presidential candidate or running mate for former President Donald Trump, with some speculating that leaving the Democrat Party would be a necessary precursor to such a move.

Whatever the case, Fox News primetime host Tucker Carlson revealed he will be interviewing Gabbard Tuesday evening.
