What is more perplexing? That Democratic Vice President and future (presumed) Presidential candidate Joe Biden believes life begins at conception and that abortion is “always” wrong; or that he refuses to legislate on that belief?
Conservative magazine National Review reported on the remarks, which came along with the Pope’s first visit to the United States:
Biden maintained that the question of when life begins is a religious matter. “I’m prepared to accept that at the moment of conception there’s human life and being, but I’m not prepared to say that to other God-fearing [and] non-God-fearing people that have a different view,” he said during an interview published by America, a Jesuit-run outlet, on Monday.
“Abortion is always wrong,” Biden continued. “All the principles of my faith, [which] I make no excuse for attempting to live up to — I don’t all the time. But I’m not prepared to impose doctrine that I’m prepared to accept on the rest of [the country].”
But is it true that this view of life is only a religious matter and not also a scientific one? When cells were found on Mars, what did the headlines scream?
If a Martian cell is a form of life, why isn’t a human being with unique DNA and an audible heartbeat at just 7-8 weeks?
The Daily Signal recently produced a new video for those who may still support abortion even up to 20-weeks. The publication followed the spouse of one if its employees to her 18-week ultrasound to highlight what few Americans who aren’t parents have seen. At 18-weeks, there is no denying the life inside a mother, even if her stomach size has yet to hint at a pregnancy.
Here’s a statement you won’t hear us make very often: Joe Biden is right (on when life begins). He’s wrong, of course, about the fact that it is a matter of opinion, made based upon one’s religious convictions. It’s evident that the belief that life begins at conception, or at the very least, is present inside a mother at 18-weeks, is incontestable according to the scientific evidence we now have at our disposal.
When do you think life begins?
