Washington D.C., Feb 3, 2021 / 15:43 pm America/Denver (CNA).
Asked Wednesday if President Joe Biden intends to work with the pro-life community, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that the president “will reach out to all Americans”.
Owen Jensen, EWTN News Nightly’s White House correspondent, asked Psaki during Feb. 3’s press briefing if Biden, who had “stated he wants to unite the country,” was going to work with Americans who are opposed to abortion.
Jensen noted that Biden has already repealed pro-life policies and pledged support for abortion—all while emphasizing the need for unity.
“In the first two weeks he’s been in office, however, and much to the great disappointment of pro-life Americans, he has revoked the Mexico City Policy, he has ordered the review of Title X and issued a statement strongly supporting Roe v. Wade,” said Jensen. “Is the president going to make any effort to reach out to pro-life Americans in his administration?”
Psaki said that Biden had “long” supported revoking the Mexico City Policy and the Roe v. Wade decision, and was “delivering on promises he made on the campaign trail” by issuing statements and revoking pro-life policy.
“But the president will reach out to all Americans, and that is how he’s going to govern—what he talked about in his Inaugural Address,” said Psaki. “And he has every intention of delivering on that promise.”
