Biden HHS Pick Becerra Defends Vote for Partial-Birth Abortion of ‘Future Baby’


California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, President Joe Biden’s pick to head the Department of Health and Human Services, did not back away Tuesday from his 2003 vote against a partial-birth abortion ban when he was in Congress.

GOP Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah questioned Becerra regarding his views on partial-birth abortion during his confirmation hearing before the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions.

“Most people agree that partial-birth abortion is awful. You voted against a ban on partial-birth abortion. Why?” Romney asked.

The partial-birth abortion ban passed the House in 2003 in a 281-142 vote, with 63 Democrats voting for it.

Biden himself voted for the ban as part of a 64-34 approval in the Senate that included over a dozen Democrats. President George W. Bush then signed it into law.
