Pro-life leaders are challenging President Joe Biden after he expressed support for a federal fund for women who take time off work or pay for child care while seeking an abortion.
“It is heartbreaking to see President Biden is so obsessed with abortion on demand that he is willing to use American tax dollars to push for more abortion rather than offering federal funding for lifesaving options offered by pro-life organizations and maternity homes around the country,” Jeanne Mancini, the president of March for Life, responded in a statement.
Biden made his comments during an interview forum that will air Oct. 23 with the digital media brand NowThis. Group Nine Media, which houses NowThis, shared a portion of the transcript with CNA.
Biden’s remarks on abortion came in response to a question from 26-year-old medical resident Danielle Mathisen, who cited her own abortion.
