Joe Biden says he still supports ban on federal funding of abortions, after apparent reversal

Joe Biden says he still supports ban on federal funding of abortions, after apparent reversal Joe Biden's stance on abortion came under attack on Wednesday after his campaign confirmed that the former vice president still supports the controversial Hyde Amendment, passed more than 40 years ago, that bars federal funding of abortion except in cases of rape or incest. Biden's position is consistent with the views he held while serving in the Senate. But it marks a departure from the rest of the sprawling Democratic field. Biden's continued support of the Hyde Amendment, first reported by NBC News, comes about a month after Biden said that he opposed the amendment.

ATLANTA — After two days of intense criticism, Joseph R. Biden Jr. reversed himself Thursday night on one of the issues most important to Democratic voters, saying he no longer supports a measure that bans federal funding for most abortions.

Joe Biden's reversal this week on the Hyde Amendment regarding abortion funding was a surrender to the “exceedingly radical” wing of the Democratic Party, American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp argued Friday on Fox News' "Hannity."

Biden said Thursday he could “no longer support" the amendment, which he had backed as recently as Wednesday, saying it makes a woman's right to an abortion "dependent on someone's ZIP code.”

Biden 'misheard' ACLU activist's question about Hyde Amendment: campaign Former Vice President Joe Biden's campaign said on Wednesday that the 2020 frontrunner "misheard" a question that effectively fed speculation that he flip-flopped on his support for the Hyde Amendment, a law blocking federal funding for abortion. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); According to his campaign, Biden thought the woman was asking about the Mexico City policy -- a ban, revived by President Trump's administration, on international aid for groups that either promote or provide abortions.

Joe Biden reverses course and says he's against Hyde Amendment "I hope Joe Biden rethinks his position on this issue," O'Rourke told Elaine Quijano on CBSN's The Republican National Committee issued a statement saying Biden had "flipped" with his "embrace of the radical left complete."

ATLANTA — Joseph R. Biden Jr. on Thursday reversed his support for the Hyde Amendment , a measure that prohibits most federal funding for abortion, after facing nearly two days of vigorous backlash from many in his own party.

“The saddest thing of all,” Schlapp told "Hannity" guest host Dan Bongino, "is to watch him stumble through that statement. Clearly, he doesn’t know what to say or what to do.”

Schlapp added that abortion “is not health care” and said the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion nationally, doesn’t mean taxpayers should have to pay for abortion services.

Biden, a Roman Catholic, had long supported the Hyde Amendment and has said he personally opposes abortion. So his reversal this week smacked of political expediency, Schlapp argued.

“This is an open-borders, Green New Deal, socialist Democratic Party that believes in post-birth abortion, late-term abortion,” Schlapp said. “They are exceedingly radical and Joe Biden is trying to go along to get that brass ring.”

Another "Hannity" guest, Trump 2020 campaign national press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, agreed with Schlapp.

“Joe Biden is Puppet Boy,” McEnany said. “There is someone pulling his strings. It’s pathetic. He has no convictions, no principles, no message.”

She said actress Alyssa Milano -- who tried to prevent passage of Georgia's pro-life law -- and low-level Biden staffers appeared to have steered the former vice president away from “whatever principles he had left.”

“This is quite a modest thing to be for,” Schlapp added. “They have become radicalized. This is not your grandfather’s Democratic Party.”

Other 2020 Democrats, like Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Kirsten Gillibrand, have said the Hyde Amendment disproportionately affects poor women who can’t access abortion through government-funded health care.
