WASHINGTON, D.C., February 26, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – President Joe Biden’s nominee for Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, came under fire this week for his refusal to answer questions about his pro-abortion stance, going so far as to invoke the rosary in one of his dodges Wednesday.
As highlighted by the Daily Caller, Republican Sen. Steve Daines of Montana pressed Becerra on whether there were any abortion restrictions he would support; Becerra refused to name any.
“But is there, to be clear, is there any line you would draw?” Daines asked. “Is there just one restriction, as it relates to abortion, that you might support?”
“From the stories I’ve heard from my wife, I know how hard many women struggle just to save the life of their baby,” Becerra responded. “I know that right now, as I speak, my mother has blessed me this morning, as I got ready to come here and last night I know when she prayed the rosary as she does every day, every evening with my aunt, that she said a prayer and included me in that prayer.”
Interesting moment where Biden HHS nominee Xavier Becerra avoids naming any abortion restrictions he would support/where he would draw the line on abortion by talking about how his mother likes to pray the rosary. pic.twitter.com/zim8g9NPUs

The Hyde Amendment prohibits the use of most federal funds for abortions, except in some limited circumstances.
But, with the Democrats in charge of the Congress and the presidency, the Hyde Amendment is now under severe attack.
That's why 200 Republican Congressmen vowed in a letter addressed to U.S. House and Senate leadership their "unified opposition to Congressional Democrats’ efforts to repeal the Hyde Amendment and other current-law, pro-life appropriations provisions."
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to signal your support of the effort to keep the Hyde Amendment firmly in place, and prevent our federal tax dollars from funding abortion.
After signing the petition, please take a few minutes to quickly and easily contact your congressmen to politely voice your opposition to the repeal of the Hyde Amendment. Simply click on the link in the 'For More Information' section below, and follow the directions.
No-one should be forced to pay for any abortion, ever, against their will. Forcing taxpayers to pay for abortion would be a gross violation of freedom of conscience, and should be vigorously resisted.
Although President Joe Biden was originally in favor of the Hyde Amendment, even as recently as 2019, he has dramatically altered his position to align with the Democratic Party platform, which has promised to repeal the amendment throughout the 2020 presidential campaign and, indeed, since taking the presidency.
The Democrats officially support unlimited abortion on demand, funded by taxpayers. Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris marked the anniversary of Roe v. Wade by pledging to make abortion available to "everyone."
But, Americans overwhelmingly disagree with this proposed policy change. A 2019 Politico/Morning Consult poll found that 49% of Americans agree with the Hyde Amendment, while only 33% oppose it.
Regardless of polls, though, abortion is always and everywhere wrong.
Abortion is not necessary medical treatment, it is the deliberate destruction of unborn human life at its most vulnerable stage. Forcing taxpayers to pay for abortion would be unconscionable.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition, telling Congressmen of both political parties, to supports efforts to keep the Hyde Amendment in all federal budgets.

As Attorney General of the Golden State, Becerra has shown a marked hostility to Americans who follow Judeo-Christian teaching on matters such as abortion and homosexuality, from forcing churches to subsidize elective abortions and nuns to subsidize contraceptives, to forcing pro-life pregnancy centers to advertise abortion resources, to refusing to fund state employees’ travel to South Carolina in protest of its law protecting adoption agencies that insist on giving children both a mother and a father.
Becerra was also responsible for enforcing draconian restrictions on religious assembly in the name of containing COVID-19, and joined other Democrat officials across the country in using the pandemic as a justification to demand abortion pills be approved for unsupervised home use.
Throughout the week, Republican senators assailed Becerra for his support of effectively-unlimited abortion and his refusal to own up to it, including his refusal to answer whether babies aborted in the second trimester should be given pain medication beforehand.
