In what is clearly shaping up to be the first major Senate confirmation battle of 2021, several high-profile Roman Catholic and pro-life organizations have weighed in against Joe Biden’s pick of California Attorney General Xavier Becerra as secretary of Health and Human Services.

“With Biden’s pick of Attorney General Becerra, we are seeing him make good on his promise to become the most radically pro-abortion president in history,” declared Jeanne Mancini of the March for Life, once considered a Catholic cause but increasingly attracting pro-lifers of all faiths.

Mancini added that “Becerra has a long and hostile record towards pro-life Americans including the persecution of those who exposed Planned Parenthood’s trafficking in baby body parts. So much for unity." 

Mancini’s strong words were echoed by Ashley McGuire of the Catholic Association.

"President-elect Joe Biden’s choice of Xavier Becerra to run HHS is a gross insult to Catholics,” said McGuire, “Becerra spent years tormenting the Little Sisters of the Poor in court, trying to force them to pay for things like abortion pills against their consciences. He also led efforts to force pro-life pregnancy resource centers to advertise for abortion. Thankfully both of his efforts failed at the Supreme Court.”

CatholicVote issued a statement charging “Joe Biden’s pick for head of HHS has targeted the Little Sisters of the Poor, waged war on the team who exposed Planned Parenthood’s body parts trade, and tried to strip conscience protections away from doctors and nurses.”
