Tell your senators to vote “NO” on Xavier Becerra
February 22, 2021
The media likes to portray Joe Biden as a moderate but his choice of California Attorney General Xavier Becerra as the nation’s health commissioner shows just what an abortion extremist he is.
In fact, there are few more committed abortion ideologues in the nation than Becerra.
As a congressman, he voted against the federal ban on partial-birth abortion procedures (performed even in the third trimester), against protection for pain-capable unborn children and children born alive after a failed abortion, and has constantly pushed for more taxpayer funding of abortion.
As attorney general of California, Becerra was behind the effort to force pregnancy help centers, which exist to give women alternatives to abortion, to tell those same women how they could obtain an abortion. (This became the Supreme Court case NIFLA vs. Becerra.)
Becerra also worked against the conscience rights of various religious groups, and insisted that the State of California, contrary to federal law, force health insurance companies to cover elective abortion.
He led a coalition of other Attorneys General to fight pro-life laws in various other states.
Perhaps most egregiously, the attorney general continued the prosecution of the undercover journalists who exposed Planned Parenthood’s business of selling the body parts of aborted babies.
Priests for Life is urging all Americans to contact their US Senators as Senate committees holding hearings on the Becerra nomination this week.
I’m asking you to join that effort.
As we noted in a recent letter to the senators, “Becerra has proven himself to be an enemy of the health of women and the unborn. He cannot be entrusted with our national health programs and policies and is not qualified to serve as Secretary of Health and Human Services.”
I’m asking you to echo those sentiments in phone calls to both of your U.S. senators. Let them know that if his nomination makes it to the full Senate for a vote, you expect them to say no to Becerra.

Please do this today and please pass along this email to as many others you know who may be willing to stand up for free speech for all.
Thank you for being part of the Priests for Life Family!
