(CNSNews.com) - Sen. John Thune (R.-S.D.) gave a speech on the Senate floor on Thursday in which he warned President Joe Biden that most Americans do not share his “radically pro-abortion agenda.”

At one point, addressing his comments directly to Biden, Thune said: “Mr. President, the majority of Americans do not believe in unrestricted abortion.”

“Then of course there’s the president’s decision to overturn the Mexico City policy, which prevents taxpayer dollars from being used to fund abortions in other countries,” Thune said at one point in his speech.

“And a new poll released last month showed that a majority of Americans do not want their tax dollars going to fund abortions,” Thune said.

“Yet the president has acted to ensure that American tax dollars can go to fund overseas abortions–whether Americans want them to or not,” he said.

“In addition, this administration has given every sign that it intends to pursue a radically pro-abortion agenda that is out of step with the views of the majority of Americans,” Thune said.

Here is a transcript of that part of Thune’s speech where he talks about Biden’s positions on abortion:

“Then of course there’s the president’s decision to overturn the Mexico City policy, which prevents taxpayer dollars from being used to fund abortions in other countries.

“Mr. President, the majority of Americans do not believe in unrestricted abortion.

“And a new poll released last month showed that a majority of Americans do not want their tax dollars going to fund abortions.

“Yet the president has acted to ensure that American tax dollars can go to fund overseas abortions – whether Americans want them to or not.

“In addition, this administration has given every sign that it intends to pursue a radically pro-abortion agenda that is out of step with the views of the majority of Americans.”
