Conservatives didn’t get the red wave we were all hoping for.
But with Republicans likely to be in the majority in the House, we can at least slow down the failing Biden agenda for the next two years.
And Joe Biden just was forced to admit defeat on this key issue.
Democrats lost their minds when the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.
Joe Biden promised to codify Roe legislatively if Democrats maintained control of both Houses.
“In these Midterm elections it is so critical to elect more Democratic Senators to the United States Senate and more Democrats to keep control of the House of Representatives,” Biden promised before the election. “If we do that, here’s the promise I make to you and the American people: The first bill I will send to the Congress will be to codify Roe v. Wade.”
Many Democrat candidates campaigned heavily on the issue.
Biden even said that he would plan to sign the bill on the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision.
They don’t have the votes
A reporter questioned Joe Biden about the issue following his meeting with Chinese President and General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party Xi Jinping.
The reporter asked “Mr. President, what should Americans expect from Congress as it relates to abortion rights after the Midterms?”
“I don’t think they can expect much of anything other than we’re going to maintain our positions,” Biden replied. “I’m not going to get into more questions. I shouldn’t even answer your question.”
“I don’t think there’s enough votes to codify unless something happens, unusual, in the House,” he continued. “I think we’re going to come very close in the House, but I don’t think we’re going to make it.”
Just like China
It is fitting that the exchange took place in China.
China has a population control program, which has led to millions of forced abortions.
It is also one of only seven countries in the world, including North Korea and blue states in the US that allows abortion past 20 weeks gestation.
If Democrats had their way, the entirety of the US would fall into that category.
Bills to “codify Roe” would force every state to allow abortion-on-demand up until the moment of birth.
Fortunately, as Biden had to admit, that isn’t going to happen.
While several states are still lagging on counting all the votes, it appears almost certain that Republicans will gain control of the House, albeit by a slim margin.
That means abortion policy will be up to the states.
So far, 13 states have passed laws granting full protection to the unborn.
Unfortunately, Democrat-run states continue to allow abortion-on-demand, and the pro-abortion Left has succeeded in passing pro-abortion ballot measures in a number of states.
Still, conservatives are in a much better place than we were less than a year ago, when an unconstitutional Supreme Court ruling imposed abortion-on-demand in all 50 states.
Thankfully, at least in parts of the country, unborn lives are being saved.
