Washington, DC - Family Research Council Action President Tony Perkins released the following statement after Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden announced Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) as his vice presidential running mate:
"I didn't think Joe Biden could move much further Left on abortion -- but he did just that in picking Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate. Vice President Biden has already endorsed taxpayer funded abortions and embraced late term abortions. And now he has chosen a vice presidential candidate who voted to leave perfectly healthy newborns on hospital tables to die and as the attorney general of California went after pro-life activists for exposing Planned Parenthood for illegally selling aborted baby body parts. During the presidential primary, Senator Harris complained that she didn't have enough time in the debates to show off her abortion radicalism. As if this were not enough, Harris co-sponsored the religious liberty-violating and pro-abortion 'Equality Act' in the U.S. Senate. Joe Biden has now clearly shown himself for what he is: a puppet on the strings of radical abortion.
"This is now a presidential ticket with an attitude! An anti-life, anti-family, anti-freedom attitude! If Joe Biden and Kamala Harris prevail in the fall, they will not only keep their commitment to undo the pro-life, pro-religious freedom, pro-economic growth of the Trump administration, they will pursue their 'progressive' policy agenda that will make the failed policies of the Obama administration look reasonable," concluded Perkins.
