Apparently, there is a group called “Pro-Life Evangelicals for Biden” who for some reason thought Joe Biden would not carry out an all-out assault on the sanctity of human life. Unfortunately for babies in the womb, they were dead wrong.
Their assumption that Joe Biden could be “pro-life” was shattered after Congress signed a porky-filled COVID-19 bill that included an exemption to the pro-life Hyde Amendment, meant to prevent federal money from funding and promoting abortion.
“We feel used and betrayed and have no intention of simply watching these kinds of efforts happen from the sidelines. Many evangelicals and Catholics took risks to support Biden publicly. President Biden and Democrats need to honor their courage,” wrote the group in a statement.
The letter goes on:
We call on President Biden to honor his commitment to us and immediately demand that the House of Representatives apply the Hyde language to the American Relief Package. This is no time for radical change to longstanding abortion policy. We also call on Sanford Bishop (D-GA), Jim Cooper (D-TN), Henry Cuellar (D-TX), Marcy Kaptur (D-OH), Jim Langevin (D-RI), Steve Lynch (D-MA), and Tim Ryan (D-OH13) to oppose this bill, as it stands, and demand the Hyde Amendment be included.
If this is not done it will raise the question of whether or not we are still welcome in the Democratic Party.

It is unclear why these Democrats feel there is still room in the Democrat Party for pro-lifers after former DNC Chair Tom Perez made it crystal clear they are not welcome in the Party.
He said, “Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman’s right to make her own choices about her body and her health. That is not negotiable, and should not change city by city or state by state.”
Pro-life Democrats are becoming rarer and rarer, and with the two supposed “pro-life” Democrats in the Senate voting for the anti-life COVID-19 relief, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA), it is pretty clear the Democrat Party’s hostility toward babies in the womb has escalated to a point beyond return.
