Joe Biden is the Democrat frontrunner for the 2020 primary election with a strong lead.
But his campaign is beginning to run into problems, with many Democrats believing he isn’t far enough Left.
And he just disproved that by announcing a new plan that has Christians up in arms.
For his entire career, Joe Biden has been pro-abortion.
But he has also always been one of the Democrats opposing taxpayer funds paying for abortions.
In 1994, Biden bragged about voting against federal funding of abortion “on no fewer than 50 occasions.”
But he just gave up on that belief, and all it took was him running for president to change his mind.
Speaking to an ACLU volunteer, Biden said the 1976 Hyde Amendment, which prohibits federal funding of abortion, “can’t stay.”
Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden has withdrawn his support for the Hyde amendment, which prohibits federal funding of abortion, saying he would abolish the amendment if elected president.
Despite his consistent support for abortion-rights legislation, Mr. Biden has always voted against taxpayer funding for the procedure, a position he now repudiates, noted John McCormack in the National Review.
Asked on video about his current stance regarding the 1976 Hyde Amendment, Biden told an ACLU volunteer he was committed to abolishing the provision, saying: “It can’t stay.”
Mr. Biden’s swing left on the abortion issue represents a significant change for the 76-year-old politician, who has prided himself on his “moderate” stance.
“I will continue to abide by the same principle that has guided me throughout my 21 years in the Senate: those of us who are opposed to abortion should not be compelled to pay for them,” Biden wrote in 1994. “As you may know, I have consistently — on no fewer than 50 occasions — voted against federal funding of abortions.”
It is already bad enough for Christians that abortion occurs in the United States.
But now Biden believes Christians need more to worry about by having their tax dollars go toward abortions.
Biden’s new-found support for taxpayer funding of abortion shows that the issue is becoming a mainstream Democrat position.
If Democrats win in 2020, taxpayer funding of abortion will likely become reality.
