NBC News reported today that the presidential campaign of Biden, who (for what it’s worth) is currently the favorite choice among Democrats to take on pro-life President Trump, “confirmed to NBC News that Biden still supports the Hyde Amendment, a four-decade-old ban on using federal funds for abortion services, except in cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the woman.”
Of course, most everyone picked up on this is not what Biden recently told the pro-abortion ACLU (in a video posted on Twitter by the ACLU on May 8), including NBC News which wrote
Biden’s continued support for Hyde not only sets him apart from the rest of his 2020 Democratic competitors, but it may surprise progressive groups like the American Civil Liberties Union, which promoted a recent tweet by one of its activists appearing to get Biden to commit to ending Hyde during a rope-line exchange in South Carolina. Biden’s campaign told NBC he would be open to repealing Hyde if abortion avenues currently protected under Roe were threatened. Click here for more.
