You are probably wondering if this is satire, but I assure you it’s not. This is real life, and it’s as ridiculous as it seems.
Apparently, there’s a group called “Pro-life Evangelicals for Biden” and they are really, really upset. As supporters of Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential run, they were under the illusion that he’d somehow be transactional on abortion. What could have given them that impression is anyone’s guess.
In the end, that assumption was shattered by the recently passed COVID “relief” bill. It includes an exception to the Hyde Amendment, which is supposed to prevent federal dollars from going toward performing and promoting abortions.

Now, my first thought is exactly why exactly does a COVID relief bill need an exemption to the Hyde Amendment? What spending is in there that will be going toward abortion in a piece of legislation that is supposed to be pointed toward helping people recover? But these are Democrats we are talking about so it’s not surprising at all that something like that would end up in there.
Regardless, I can’t help but laugh at the idea of a pro-life group supporting Biden in the first place. What exactly did they think would happen? This is a man who has never been pro-life a second of his political career. Throughout his entire campaign in 2020, Biden assured the left he would be the most pro-abortion president in American history. There has been no hint that he even opposes partial-birth abortion, and he’s been outspoken in his opposition to the Hyde Amendment.
In other words, only a complete idiot would vote for Biden if one was opposed to any facet of the despicable act that is abortion.
This is actually all a sad testament to how shallow our politics have become. How could someone who is against the killing of children in the womb be so wrapped up in opposition to mean tweets and Trump’s personality that they could actively support Joe Biden? Shouldn’t a life and death issue such as that take precedence? You’d think so, but I guess some convinced themselves otherwise. Now, they have to live with their decision and all the repercussions of it.
