On Monday, Meghan McCain delivered a stern warning to President Joe Biden, who claims to be a practicing Roman Catholic but whose politics vehemently oppose the official doctrines of his church. McCain warned that the president is doing “grave spiritual harm” to himself by not just advocating for abortion but for forcing pro-life taxpayers to foot the bill for it.
“Everybody’s spiritual journey and relationship with God and their church is their own personal journey and I don’t try and proselytize my spirituality on other people, but if you are a devout Catholic, as President Biden claims to be, abortion is a cardinal sin that can do deep spiritual harm to you, and President Biden had been supportive of the Hyde Amendment up until 2019,” McCain, a co-host of The View, began.
She noted that the Hyde Amendment prevented the federal government from providing taxpayer funding for abortion. When Biden opposed the Hyde Amendment, that marked “a deep paradigm shift” in how pro-lifers view the president.
“If he’s for the federal funding of abortion — and I know the women on this show disagree with me — but, as far as I’m concerned, abortion is murder, and that means the government funding of killing of the unborn and we have to, as pro-lifers, fight for the rights of the unborn. And that’s a doctrine that’s as old as the Catholic Church itself,” McCain explained.
