Catholic Bishop Warns Biden Is on a 'Path That Leads to Death'

Share

Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore is speaking out against President Joe Biden’s executive order on abortion.

On Friday, Biden signed an executive order as part of the effort to protect abortion access nationwide.

Lori issued a statement arguing that it is “deeply disturbing and tragic that President Biden is choosing instead to use his power as president of the United States to promote and facilitate abortion in our country, seeking every possible avenue to deny unborn children their most basic human and civil right, the right to life.”

He added, “Rather than using the power of the executive branch to increase support and care to mothers and babies, the president’s executive order seeks only to facilitate the destruction of defenseless, voiceless human beings.”

Lori explained in response to the Dobbs decision, he “called for the healing of wounds and repairing of social divisions, for reasoned reflection and civil dialogue, and for coming together to build a society and economy that supports marriages and families, and where every woman has the support and resources she needs to bring her child into this world in love.”

The statement continues, “And as religious leaders, we pledged ourselves to continue our service to God’s great plan of love for the human person and to work with our fellow citizens to fulfill America’s promise to guarantee the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all people.”

The archbishop went on to encourage the president to “abandon this path that leads to death and destruction and to choose life.”

According to Lori, the “Catholic Church stands ready to work with this administration and all elected officials to protect the right to life of every human being and to ensure that pregnant and parenting mothers are fully supported in the care of their children before and after birth.”

His comments come less than a week after Pope Francis said he respects the Supreme Court for its decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, as IJR reported.

“I tell you the truth. I don’t understand it from a technical point of view,” Francis said.

The pope explained he had to “study it because I don’t really understand (the details of) the ruling 50 years ago and now I can’t say whether it did right or wrong from a judicial point of view.”

Francis later argued the moral question is “whether it is right to take a human life to solve a problem.”

Last week, it was reported that chaos and “mismanagement” has consumed the White House following the court’s ruling.

A call last week between dozens of celebrity Democratic supporters and activists and White House aides to discuss the ruling reportedly encapsulated “the overwhelming sense of frustration among Democrats with Biden.”

Additionally, White House aides expressed exhaustion after having to address “a swarm of crises that keeps growing,” according to the report.
