Joe Biden is truly a “transition” candidate

Today, Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. proclaimed he would be a “transition” candidate. In other words, he seems to view himself as a ‘placeholder’ for a future president with actual conviction.

Iowans for LIFE is a non-partisan pro-life organization that advocates for the dignity of human life from conception to natural death. The pro-life movement is built on a conviction supported by science, theology, and philosophy.

Joe Biden has none.

Two years ago, a woman came forward and accused then Supreme Court nominee, Bret Kavanaugh, of sexual assault. The woman couldn’t remember many details and no one corroborated her story.

Nonetheless, Joe Biden said everyone should automatically “believe the woman.” By this standard, he suggested Kavanaugh wasn’t fit to sit on the Court.

His standard has changed now that he is the one accused. However, his accuser does remember details and has a number of people who corroborate that she told them about the assault around the time it occurred. He truly is a “transition” candidate.

Biden’s standard on pro-life issues has also deteriorated in the name of political expediency over his long career.

Joe Biden and abortion

Since IFL’s mission is all about protecting human life from fertilization to natural death, we are especially interested in the former vice president’s views on the abortion issue. The EWTN video above showcases his transition from pro-life advocate to a candidate with a perfect pro-abortion record. Iowans for LIFE has written about how out-of-touch Democratic candidates are with their constituents on this issue.

Last year, Mr. Biden withdrew his support for the longstanding Hyde Amendment, which bars the use of federal funds to pay for abortion, except to save the life of the mother, or in the cases of incest or rape. He said:

“I’m prepared to accept for me, personally, doctrine of my church” [about when life begins] …

And what is that doctrine? The Church states it in its Catechism [2271]:

“Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable. Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law” 

Biden continues …

… “but I’m not prepared to impose that on every other person.”

Obviously, he IS willing to impose Big Abortion’s view on American taxpayers by forcing them to to be complicit in the moral evil of abortion by paying for it.

IFL embraces all of the reproductive teachings of the Catholic Church. Mr. Biden disappoints pro-lifers with his willingness to quickly jettison longstanding positions on life for the sake of political expediency.

Joe Biden continues to lead the polls

As of yesterday, he leads President Trump 47.4% to 42.1% in RealClearPolitics’s national average, down slightly since December.

Joe Biden is an unserious man in a time that demands conviction and courage, two virtues that seem to have dissipated in his transition candidacy from pro-life advocate to no-holds-barred supporter of Big Abortion.
