At the White House press convention, EWTN reporter Owen Jensen asked Biden spokesperson Jen Psaki if President Joe Biden and Pope Francis could be discussing abortion at their upcoming meeting on the Vatican.
“Millions of Catholics will be watching when the President and Pope Francis meet. The White House has said they will discuss working together on efforts grounded in respect for fundamental human dignity. Question 1: will that include the dignity of the unborn?” asked Owen on the press briefing Wednesday.
“Well, Owen as you know, although you ask me most often, if not every time, about abortion. But I will say there is a great deal of agreement…” Psaki began off by saying. Owen started to answer Psaki’s assertion, however she demanded an opportunity to proceed speaking.
The first half of Psaki’s reply talked about every part however abortion:
“I wanted to note since you follow this closely, is that there’s a great deal of agreement and overlap with the President and Pope Francis on a range of issues: poverty, combating the climate crisis, ending the COVID-19 pandemic. These are all hugely important, impactful issues … that will be the centerpiece of what their discussion is when they meet. The President has met with him … this will be their fourth meeting, we expect a warm and constructive dialogue.”
Then Psaki pivoted again to abortion:
“You are familiar with where the President stands. He’s somebody who stands up for and believes that a woman’s right to choose is important.”
Psaki then tried calling on another person. But Owen got here again by saying that “the Pope has said abortion is murder and it’s like hiring a hitman. Does the President agree or disagree with that?” the reporter pressed.
“You know that the President believes in a woman’s right to choose,” Psaki concluded within the back-and-forth questioning.
Biden’s stance on abortion got here to the forefront originally of September when his administration declared warfare towards the state of Texas for his or her new restrictions on the follow. It led Biden to denounce his personal perception that life begins at conception and left the White House attempting to defend Biden’s Catholic religion.
In different Papal information, Pope Francis will in some unspecified time in the future go to Canada on the invitation of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops.
This information comes amid upcoming conferences with Indigenous tribe leaders scheduled to occur on the Vatican by the tip of the 12 months.
