Just in time for Mother’s Day, one of the newest members of “The Squad,” freshman Rep. Cori Bush, D-Mo., referred to black mothers as “birthing persons.” The abortion advocacy group NARAL quickly backed the Missouri congresswoman’s erroneous definition of who can give birth.
“When we talk about birthing people, we’re being inclusive,” the group said. “It’s that simple. We use gender neutral language when talking about pregnancy, because it’s not just cis-gender women that can get pregnant and give birth. Reproductive freedom is for *every* body.”
While many Americans scoff at this bewildering sentiment and acknowledge it is contrary to basic science, Bush’s rhetoric further highlights Democrats’ insistence that up is down, left is right, and God is a lie. Shame on you rubes for believing facts that are rooted in a biblical understanding of human nature, not to mention science textbooks.
In his proclamation on the National Day of Prayer last week, one critical word was left out of President Joe Biden’s statement — God. “Throughout our history, Americans of many religions and belief systems have turned to prayer for strength, hope and guidance,” Biden’s proclamation read. “Prayer has nourished countless souls and powered moral movements – including essential fights against racial injustice, child labor and infringement on the rights of disabled Americans. Prayer is also a daily practice for many, whether it is to ask for help or strength, or to give thanks over blessings bestowed.”
All Biden could muster in his remarks that day to acknowledge the Creator was that the COVID-19 vaccine roll-out, organized by the Trump administration via Operation Warp Speed, had been developed “by the grace of God.” Comparatively, Donald Trump’s 2017 proclamation included God five times, five times in 2018, seven times in 2019, and 11 times in 2020.
It is no secret that the White House is not exactly the cream of the religious crop, and religious leaders are taking note. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is at odds over whether Biden and other politicians who support the killing of the unborn ought to be advised to cease Communion. While Biden is the second Catholic president in U.S. history after John F. Kennedy, his policies in support of abortion blur his supposed dedication to the faith.
On Biden’s first day, he rolled back the Mexico City Policy to prohibit the U.S. government from funding international abortions. Also known as the “global gag rule,” President Ronald Reagan put the rule in place in 1984. Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama also repealed it, and Trump reinstated it. The president also instructed the Health and Human Services Department to roll back a rule that prevented health-care providers that receive federal dollars from referring women to get abortions.
The Catholic faith is quite clear on the abortion issue. The Bible explicates in Deuteronomy 24:16 that “Parents are not to be put to death for their children, nor children put to death for their parents; each will die for their own sin,” and in Jeremiah 1:5, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
Nonetheless, according to The Washington Post, the deeply pro-abortion Biden is “very Catholic.” Notwithstanding that a mere 5 percent of Democrats said in a poll the “decline in religious faith and church attendance” is one of the biggest problems today, a prayer that took place in the House in January demonstrates the perverse leftist advertisement of secularism as advantageous.
As you may recall, House Democrats concluded a prayer on the first day of the 117th Congress by saying “Amen, and a-woman.” The decision, which makes no sense since “Amen” is a term from the Bible that means “verily” or “let it be so,” was guided by congressional Democrats’ rule change for “gender-neutral” words. Amen has nothing to do with gender. But in terms of gender, it is clear where the left stands.
There is a reason Ryan T. Anderson’s book “When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment” was deleted by Amazon. There is a reason Democrats ardently opposed an Arkansas bill to ban genital mutilation and hormone treatments for minors, and others like it. There is also a reason Democrats do not care if a male dominates female sports but dresses like a female to play the part.
The left is pushing a fundamental redefinition of things Americans once acknowledged as true. The Bible tells people to treat others with respect and as independent beings able to have their own opinions, but the left’s lurch toward critical race theory says we are all implicitly racist due to identity and need to check our privilege. It’s an endless loop of hate.
The Post’s claim that Biden is “very Catholic,” which Federalist Political Editor John Davidson debunked here, is a perfect depiction of how the Democrats view everything. To them, the world is malleable and ideas are ingrained in goop — or a “human construct.” Black women are “black birthing persons” because they believe men, who do not have the physical organs to gestate a child, can reproduce in the 21st century.
If there are no fixed sets of truth Biden and the left determine, it seems Biden is not so “very Catholic.” In a disconnect from the majority of the country who still views God as the Creator of all things, the left wishes to cower Americans into submission and spin ideas irrespective of both biblical teachings and science.
