Meghan McCain has a serious message for President Joe Biden. “The View” host stated that because of Biden’s religion — he’s supposedly a devout, practicing Catholic — he should understand the harm that abortion causes. Further, he should be aware of the harm he’s causing by revoking his support of the Hyde Amendment.
Catholic Bishops vs. Biden
Megan’s warning to Biden came during the show’s “Hot Topics” segment. Its focus was on the recent Catholic bishops’ communion plan. In June, U.S. bishops voted to create new guidance for communion. It would give them the theological basis to deny communion to Biden and other Catholics who support abortion.
Meghan McCain’s Warning
Her statement was blunt. She said that “abortion is murder” and called it a “cardinal sin.” Biden, she said, will have to face his Creator one day and justify his stance. “He’s doing grave spiritual harm to himself and harm to this country,” McCain stated. She went on to say that she found Biden’s stance on abortion absurd. Saying that he’s against abortion personally but supports the right to choose is “like saying I’m personally opposed to murder, but if you want to murder a little bit, it’s fine…”
Biden and the Hyde Amendment
One of McCain’s key points was about Biden’s changing stance on the Hyde Amendment, which restricted federal funding for abortion.
Until Biden’s run for president, he supported it, according to McCain. His May budget jettisoned the amendment, which had been in place for 40 years. This means taxpayers could be funding abortions even if they’re pro-life. McCain took issue with this, stating that this is “government funding of killing of the unborn and we have to, as pro-lifers, fight for the rights of the unborn.”
