Joe Biden told a group of young people at the White House earlier this week that he does indeed support a federal fund to pay for costs associated with women getting abortions.
Here’s more via Axios:
President Biden would support a federal fund for people who need to take time off work and pay for childcare to obtain an abortion, he said in an interview forum with NowThis that will air Sunday on social media.
Biden was responding to a question from Danielle Mathisen, a 26-year-old medical resident, who noted that some companies have begun helping their workers pay for abortions and asked whether Biden would support federal funding for the same services.
“The answer is absolutely … I do support that, and I’ve publicly urged companies to do that. I’ve urged them publicly as president of the United States saying, ‘This is what you should be doing,” he said.
“I urge you to do it because there’s so many, and imagine the women who need that kind of assistance, but have no money at all to be able to do this. None. How, how — what do they do? They don’t have the option,” Biden said.
As Dan McLaughlin pointed out on Twitter…
This is not pro-choice, it’s pro-abortion. You subsidize things when you believe they are good & want more of them. The money says where their values are. https://t.co/qz1UIOnNcg

He’s absolutely right. Biden and his leftist hord want more women killing their unborn babies and they’ll use federal taxpayer money to make it happen if they can.
This is all in the name of ‘traveling’ to get abortions because the barbaric procedure is now banned in so many states now because of the Dobbs decision. It’s the costs associated with abortions – not abortion itself – which is how they justify the use of taxpayer dollars to try and get around the Hyde Amendment, which bans federal funds being used for abortions.
Biden has already signed an executive order directing HHS to subsidize these costs though Medicaid.
In related news, this meeting with young people was the one where I believe Dylan Mulvaney was invited to meet with Biden. Axios writes:
The interview, which was taped on Tuesday, will debut Sunday across NowThis’ social media channels.
It was part of a wider forum moderated by NowThis correspondent Alejandro Alba. President Biden spoke with six young adults about six key issues this election cycle, including abortion access, trans rights, criminal justice reform, gun safety, economic insecurity, and climate injustice.
This is all about the midterm elections. Biden is hoping he can convince more young people to vote for Democrats, which is why he had this meeting in the first place and it will air on NowThis’ social media platforms.
