Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.) has asked the Biden administration to choose between promotions for senior officers and abortion in the military.
Three of Biden’s appointees, Army Secretary Christine Wormuth, Navy Secretary Carlos Del Toro and Air Force Secretary Frank Kendall collaborated on a Washington Post op-ed describing Sen Tuberville’s hold on military promotion as “putting our national security at risk”.
They claim that continuing to do so will “have a corrosive effect on the force” and they insist that they will go on putting abortion ahead of national security.
The Biden appointees claim that abortion on demand in the military is “critical and necessary to meet our obligations to the force.”
Apparently, it’s more critical and necessary than national security.
The bottom line is we have a Mexican standoff here between Biden’s military people and Sen. Tuberville.
Biden’s appointees, civilian and military, had a chance to choose between abortion and national security. They’ve argued incessantly that Sen. Tuberville is endangering national security, but any statement that they make about him is by definition equally true of them.
If they claim that Sen. Tuberville is putting his opposition to abortion ahead of national security, they’re admitting that they’re putting abortion ahead of national security.
So what exactly are they loyal to, America or abortion?
