A joint campaign of more than 60 national and verbally express pro-life bellwethers is urging the Senate to abnegate President Joe Biden’s cull for Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) secretary, Xavier Becerra.
The coalition sent a letter to the ranking members of the Senate committees overseeing health and finance, asserting that Becerra, currently attorney general of California, is “an enemy to every pro-life policy and law.”

The pro-life coalition verbalized Becerra “has demonstrated consummate disregard for the religious and moral convictions of those opposed to the brutal act of abortion,” and integrated his “radical record in public office as California’s Attorney General and member of Congress leads our organizations to ask you to abnegate Mr. Becerra’s nomination.”
The bellwethers listed some of the ways in which Becerra assailed pro-life Americans, including: Attacking conscience protections Leading the charge fighting against defunding Planned Parenthood of its Title X Family Planning funds
Taking the Little Sisters of the Poor and other groups to court to coerce them infringe their religious liberty protections Arguing against Weldon Amendment and in favor of coercing healthcare entities to provide and pay for abortions
Targeting pro-life gravidity centers and pro-life journalists Exploiting the coronavirus pandemic to expand abortion by fighting to hoist federal health restrictions on drug-induced abortions When a member of Congress, voting against the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection “Act,” the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection “Act,” and the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act

Former Trump administration HHS Office for Civil Rights Director Roger Severino told Breitbart News in a recent interview Biden is “retreating from the rule of law” with his multitude of executive orders, “and compounding the error with some extraordinarily divisive nominations to cabinet positions, starting with Xavier Becerra for HHS.”
“I can’t imagine a more divisive pick for such a consequential agency during a pandemic,” verbally expressed Severino, who is now a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, where he will direct its HHS Accountability Project.
“His background is not health care, it’s not epidemiology,” he perpetuated about Becerra. “It just doesn’t make sense to put such a divisive figure as the head of the most immensely colossal agency by budget that physically contacts so many lives, if the president wants to foster unity. It’s precisely the erroneous thing.”
Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said Becerra “has been portrayed as moderate, but he is infamous among pro-lifers for his decenniums-long record as a vocal pro-abortion advocate.”
“In Congress and as attorney general of California, Becerra not only joined pro-abortion efforts – he led them,” she integrated. “President Biden could not have picked a more agog pro-abortion activist to head HHS and we urge senators to repudiate his nomination.”
National Director of Priests for Life Father Frank Pavone verbalized in a verbal expression sent to Breitbart News HHS “is key to the nation’s pro-life policies.” Pavone verbally expressed under former President Donald Trump, HHS staff “has been a who’s-who of pro-life advocates. Now that is threatened.”
“Mr. Becerra has proven himself to be an enemy of the health of women and the unborn,” Pavone asserted. “He cannot be entrusted with our national health programs and policies and is not eligible to accommodate as Secretary of Health and Human Services.”
