Family First Comment: “The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends that all moms get an ultrasound during the first trimester of their pregnancy. This ultrasound will help determine the estimated due date, check on the placement of the baby and see if there is more than one baby. It will also confirm the heartbeat of a baby. Abortion stops a beating heart, ending the life of what science tells us is a human being… Even Mr. Biden acknowledges, as he said during the 2012 vice presidential debate, that “life begins at conception. That’s the church’s judgment. I accept it in my personal life.” So maybe he’s not a science denier. On this issue, it’s worse. Mr. Biden acknowledges the science and still supports ending the life of another human being. Which is why he must never be president.”
The former vice president now embraces an extreme view of abortion on demand.
Science tells us that an unborn child is a human being. That was my response to former Vice President Joe Biden’s tweet earlier this week that said, “we need a president who believes in science.” So, is Mr. Biden a denier?
Like most of his political career, Joe Biden’s record on abortion is a series of flip-flops. He now embraces an extreme view of abortion on demand all the way through birth. In 1973, Joe Biden said the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision went “too far.” Today, he will appoint justices who will uphold it.
During his time in the U.S. Senate, Mr. Biden voted on multiple occasions to prevent federal employees from obtaining taxpayer-funded abortion services. After being attacked during the Democratic primaries, Mr. Biden switched his position. He now supports taxpayer-funded abortion.
So what does science tell us about this subject? A statement by the American College of Pediatricians states that they concur “with the body of scientific evidence that corroborates that a unique human life starts when the sperm and egg bind to each other in a process of fusion of their respective membranes and a single hybrid cell called a zygote, or one-cell embryo, is created.” In other words, science tells us that an unborn child is a human being.
From the point of fertilization, a baby’s unique genetic makeup and DNA are complete, including their sex and hair color. A few weeks later, a baby’s heart begins to beat. Brain waves can be detected not long after that and eventually all of the organs are complete. The baby needs the remainder of the time in the womb to grow.
