The New York Times, in a story about President Joe Biden and the Democrats’ $3.5 trillion spending package, wrote that life begins at conception.
That was most certainly an editorial error by the extreme-left newspaper that stands solidly in favor of a woman’s right to destroy her unborn baby.
“When congressional committees meet this week to begin formally drafting Democrats’ ambitious social policy plan, they will be undertaking the most significant expansion of the nation’s safety net since the war on poverty in the 1960s, devising legislation that would touch virtually every American’s life, from conception to aged infirmity,” the Times wrote on Sept. 6.
“Passage of the bill, which could spend as much as $3.5 trillion over the next decade, is anything but certain. President Biden, who has staked much of his domestic legacy on the measure’s enactment, will need the vote of every single Democrat in the Senate, and virtually every one in the House, to secure it. And with two Democratic senators, Joe Manchin III of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, saying they would not accept such a costly plan, it will challenge Democratic unity like nothing has since the Affordable Care Act.”
Among the expansion of the “safety net” is “free” or subsidized child care that costs parents no more than 7 percent of their income, as well as free universal pre-K or preschool programs and subsidized two years of postsecondary education, or “free” college tuition.
Alaska recognizes that life begins at conception, as pregnant mothers are eligible for Denali Kid Care, a program popular with Democrats.
