Pro-Life Evangelicals for Biden
I don’t talk about abortion in public because I don’t have a say on this matter. Nevertheless, I am going to put my head on the chopping block and share my thoughts.
I support abortion in extreme cases such as rape, incest, and fetal nonviability. I don’t find having an abortion due to financial difficulty is sufficient, yet it is the most common cause of abortion. I believe there has to be a better choice.
First, the U.S. government does provide food for the kids through welfare if the parents cannot provide for them. It’s not a whole lot, but enough to live.
Second, shouldn’t the father have a say in keeping or aborting the baby if money is the issue? If the mother felt that having a baby would put her in financial burden, can the father step in and take his responsibility? If he is man enough to get a woman pregnant, he should man up to raise his child.
My views are based on my own thoughts and not religion, but I am glad that I have found a group of pro-life evangelicals supporting Biden for the same reasons. I thought I would never agree with evangelicals, but here we are in 2020 and I am on board with their views:
Knowing that the most common reason women give for abortion is the financial difficulty of another child, we appreciate a number of Democratic proposals that would significantly alleviate that financial burden: accessible health services for all citizens, affordable childcare, a minimum wage that lifts workers out of poverty.
For these reasons, we believe that on balance, Joe Biden’s policies are more consistent with the biblically shaped ethic of life than those of Donald Trump. Therefore, even as we continue to urge different policies on abortion, we urge evangelicals to elect Joe Biden as president.
