Xavier Becerra is under fire as President Joe Biden’s first choice to head the Department of Health and Human Services for many reasons, from his litigious opposition to former President Trump’s administration in filing more than 100 lawsuits, to his advocacy for “Medicare for All,” to his championing a convicted drug dealer for a pardon. But on the issue of abortion, Becerra has a decades’ old track record of siding with the abortion lobby whenever possible and using the power of his office to try and force others to share his enthusiastic support of abortion up until the moment of birth.
