LA CROSSE, Wisconsin, January 27, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Cardinal Raymond Burke has condemned President Joe Biden’s plan to codify into federal law the results of the 1973 Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision which imposed abortion on demand across the country.
On Friday, the 48thanniversary of the infamous Roe decision, newly installed President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris issued a statement saying: “In the past four years, reproductive health, including the right to choose, has been under relentless and extreme attack.” They added, “The Biden-Harris Administration is committed to codifying Roe v. Wade and appointing judges that respect foundational precedents like Roe.”
“We live in times when it can seem that the evil one is succeeding in his program of lies and death. In our own nation, the federal government wants to codify as law the totally unjust decision of the Supreme Court which made legal abortion-on-demand, and to impose upon schools the teaching of the iniquitous gender theory,” Burke said.

“At the same time, it threatens to deny the freedom of religion, the freedom of citizens to follow God’s plan for the world and for man, inscribed in nature itself and written upon every human heart.”
Responding to the Biden statement as well was Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann, of Kansas City in Kansas, and chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities.
Naumann lamented: “It is deeply disturbing and tragic that any president would praise and commit to codifying a Supreme Court ruling that denies unborn children their most basic human and civil right, the right to life, under the euphemistic disguise of a health service.”
Naumann reminded all Catholics that the Catechism states: “‘Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable’.”
