Biden a 'devout Catholic'? That's What The White House Says. Yet Biden Is Set to Reinstate U.S. Funding for Global Abortion, and related stories

White House says Biden is a 'devout Catholic' when asked about abortion policies:
Cardinal Raymond Burke has said Biden was not a "Catholic in good standing."
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki described President Biden as a "devout Catholic" after being asked about his stances on taxpayer funding for abortion.
Psaki's comments came during her first press conference Wednesday, where an EWTN Global Catholic Network reporter asked her about "two big concerns for pro-life Americans" -- the Hyde Amendment and Mexico City Policy. The former bars the use of federal funds to pay for abortion under most circumstances, while the latter restricts taxpayer funding of abortion abroad. "What is President Biden doing on those two items right now?" reporter Owen Jensen asked.
Psaki responded that the administration would have more to say on the Mexico City Policy, adding: "I will just take the opportunity to remind all of you that he is a devout Catholic and somebody who attends church regularly. He started his day attending church with his family this morning but I don't have anything more for you on that."
The Mexico City Policy, which blocks overseas funding for abortion, has repeatedly been reversed and reinstated by previous administrations. Biden, however, sent shockwaves through the media when he announced that he would reverse his position on the decades-old Hyde Amendment. --->READ MORE HERE

Biden Is Set to Reinstate U.S. Funding for Global Abortion:
According to reports, President Joe Biden shortly will issue an executive order reversing the Mexico City policy, which currently prevents U.S. aid money from funding groups that perform or promote abortion around the globe.
During the Democratic presidential primary, Biden’s campaign promised that, if elected, he would follow his Democratic predecessors in undoing the policy, ensuring that U.S. global aid can once again fund abortions.
At yesterday’s press briefing after the inauguration, a reporter asked Biden’s press secretary Jen Psaki about the future of the policy. Psaki replied that Biden is “a devout Catholic” and added, “I don’t have anything more for you on that.”
But this morning, in prepared remarks to the World Health Organization, Dr. Anthony Fauci announced that Biden “will be revoking the Mexico City Policy in the coming days.”
The Mexico City policy was first instated by President Ronald Reagan, and since his administration, the policy has flip-flopped back and forth depending on the political party of the man in the Oval Office. Under each Democratic administration, the policy was revoked, only to be reinstated when a Republican administration took over. --->READ MORE HERE
