U.S. bishops react to “deeply disturbing” Biden statement

President Joe Biden’s statement backing legal abortion on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade drew swift reaction from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, whose pro-life chairman said the no: “We strongly urge the president to reject abortion and promote life-affirming aid to women and communities in need. . . .It is deeply disturbing and tragic that any president would praise and commit to codifying a Supreme Court ruling that denies unborn children their most basic human and civil right, the right to life under the euphemistic disguise of a health service.”
