Washington, D.C. – In response to Joe Biden’s pick of California Attorney General Xavier Becerra for secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) issued the following statement:
“Far from ‘uniting’ the country, Biden has proven yet again he is an extremist on abortion,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Becerra is aggressively pro-abortion and a foe of free speech. As attorney general of California, he continued what his predecessor Kamala Harris started by persecuting citizen journalists who exposed Planned Parenthood’s role in baby parts trafficking. Not only that, he went all the way to the Supreme Court to try to force California’s pro-life pregnancy centers to advertise and refer for abortion – a policy the Court rejected as unconstitutional. In Congress, he even voted in favor of partial-birth abortion.”
“This pick underscores the importance of winning in Georgia to prevent pro-abortion forces from taking control of the U.S. Senate. Republican senators must stand firm and stop this unacceptable nomination from going forward.”
SBA List is a network of 900,000 pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
