For Immediate Release
Brown: “Becerra . . . is an enemy of life who comes from the same philosophy of death as Biden himself.”
WASHINGTON, D.C. (7 December 2020) — American Life League released the following statements today following the announcement that President-Elect Joe Biden will nominate California’s attorney general, Xavier Becerra, to serve as his first secretary of Health and Human Services. Becerra has a long and sordid history of supporting abortion, even going after Planned Parenthood investigator David Daleiden.
American Life League president Judie Brown stated:
Xavier Becerra, Joe Biden’s pick to lead the Department of Health and Human Services, is an enemy of life who comes from the same philosophy of death as Biden himself. Becerra is known for his devotion to destroying the Center for Medical Practice and its leader, David Daleiden. Becerra has advanced the cause of the enemies of the babies—groups like Planned Parenthood—in ways that will help him redefine the meaning of health and human services.
Becerra will treat aborting a child as a health practice, and he will consider human services as anything that eliminates the lives of people found to be unwanted or burdensome to others. America will rue the day Becerra’s appointment is confirmed, and so we will work tirelessly to make sure he never becomes the DHHS secretary.
American Life League is the nation’s oldest grassroots, Catholic, pro-life organization. Its president, Judie Brown, has led the organization since its 1979 beginning. She has served three terms on the Pontifical Academy for Life—appointed twice by Pope John Paul II and again by Pope Benedict XVI.
